Lonely geniuses find new home on Match.com

(CNN) -

It takes a special person to join Mensa.

For one, the elite society only takes individuals with IQ scores in the 98th percentile, meaning just 1 in 50 Americans is eligible.

This exclusivity — some might say snobbery — is part of Mensa’s lore. Early Mensans in Britain walked around with yellow buttons, organizational publications once referred to non-Mensa members as “Densans,” and last year, a top Mensa member and tester called anyone with an IQ of 60 a “carrot.”

In short, you don’t always join Mensa because you think you’re smart. You join to be set apart from most people, who are, as one member put it: “mundane.”

But a new partnership between American Mensa and online dating giant Match.com offers a new, enticing reason to join the society of geniuses: true love.

Beginning this week, members of the brainiac group can connect through a separate, exclusive dating service called Mensa Match. In addition, Match.com members can add a special Mensa badge to their profiles, signaling a specific interest in connecting with a single person with a confirmed genius-level IQ score.
