I remember several years ago, being about 20 years old, and I was out with a group of girlfriends. At least not compared to the number of men who were interested in my friends. The men seemed interested in my girlfriends, but not me. Not that I was trying to actually figure it out; I was too busy feeling sorry for myself. He pulled his head right back and stepped away from me, taking one step back, literally. I remember walking away from that club where I was at, and weeks later, started to tell myself the boring story about how men don’t want to be in a relationship with me because they were intimidated by me. The reality is that attraction occurs when there is polarity.
One can’t get clarity when they are feeling sorry for themselves. I was actually totally clueless, because it was none of that. Polarity happens when there is opposite energies, it didn’t have to be that way, it is just how it is in our universe.
It's the gap in intelligence —not gender — that causes the intimidation."Do strong career minded women intimidate guys? It probably has more to do with these women having chosen to spend their time and effort trying to accomplish other goals instead of pursuing and working on relationships." "Honestly, when it comes down to it, all men have a little bit of intimidation in them, simply because of the historical dominance of males in society.
Men inherit milllennia years of social and hierarchical dominance and either knowingly or unknowingly have an irrational fear of losing their territory." As a younger single man, I was intimidated by the women I was attracted to; the more sexually attracted I was, the more intimidated I felt.
It was that I walked around, living my life from this place of thinking that my worth came from being career minded and successful. And yet – it pushed the better men away, because I didn’t need their direction.
And that became a habit; so much so that when i spoke to men, my body was tight, I wasn’t trusting, I was fully set on directing my own life. I wasn’t soft, I was hard and trying to just be enough.
He’s intimidated and doesn’t want to look bad to you.
Instead, he tries to learn more about you and find some common ground. How dare you look amazing, act confident and be successful?
As much as he might want to approach you, he’s put off by your confidence. His ego’s been hurt somehow and now he has to go lick his wounds. No matter what you say to the guy, he takes it as an insult. He’s intimidated and thinks you’re constantly judging him. If his ego’s that fragile, do you even want to deal with him to begin with? Snide comments about whatever you happen to say is a sure sign he’s feeling intimidated.
A true partner will accept you, love you and be proud of you for your entire being; so why settle for someone who doesn’t live up to that standard?
But obviously you shouldn’t let the insecurities of others prevent you from being any less amazing! Sometimes you need to step back and ask yourself if you actually WANT to be with a guy who is intimidated by any aspect of who you really are.
He seemed interested, but now he’s looking the other way. Sometimes even the men who can are still shy about approaching you. It’s kind of like a little kid hoping their parents don’t realize they’re lying about who really broke the lamp. Sharing a few smiles across a crowded room is usually a good sign a guy is interested. The problem is, he doesn’t want you to know how afraid he is. All of these are ways for them to deal with feeling a little inferior to the hot girl they’ve approached. Did you just tell him about getting promoted at work? Odds are, an intimidated man suddenly comes up with an excuse to leave.
Some guys just can’t handle a strong, independent woman. Why bother flirting with you if they don’t have the balls to ask you out? I guess when they find out you’re confident, have a career and aren’t going to take any sh*t, they feel a little intimidated. When a guy seems way too nervous, he’s feeling intimidated. Men who are intimidated by you might talk too loudly, stiffen their stance, push out their chest, fidget more than usual and just generally seem awkward and uncomfortable talking to you.
