When a guy says you are intimidating

20 Mar

Knowing if you intimidate men can mean the difference between getting the guy that you want and being passed over for your friend. You’ve been told so for years by your friends, family and even strangers.But men seem to be literally afraid to get close to you. If men are intimidated by you, they will often look at you but seldom approach.Guys may also flirt when they meet you but often neglect to ask you out on a date.When you are out on a date, a man may be intimidated if he suddenly becomes quiet early in the conversation.I’m talking about this bizarre open conversation that happens at one of two points in a relationship: You somehow turn “you’re intimidating” into an opening line.Why, yes, you now have my attention because I’m now curious about your psyche.

But is there a romantic cost to being such a trailblazer? Besides that, it also seems like a common reason girlfriends use to explain why one of their own is perennially single.Does crushing it at the gym, climbing the ladder at work, and looking put together while doing it actually scare men off? I asked my boyfriend whether this is more of a convenient reason guys use to break off a budding relationship or a legitimate feeling they might have when dealing with a powerful woman.He says it's the latter.after he starts talking to the woman in question," says Blake."If a guy uses intimidation as a reason to dump the woman, that's kind of crazy.' I'm afraid you're too good for me so I'm dumping you?
