by Practical It's not a secret that one of the biggest obstacles that men have toward approaching very attractive women is the fact that they are intimidated by them.When a man hears that these women are just like all other women and that there is no reason to be intimidated by them, he might believe that and yet that argument alone will not eliminate his fear of approaching and meeting those women.Just like us women, men get butterflies in their tummy when they approach someone they’re attracted to. With their nerves screaming, they find themselves stammering and stuttering while talking to the lady. To avoid a scene later on, a man may avoid asking a beautiful woman out in the very first place. "Mara, none of the mothers talk to me, I smile and act friendly, but they just stare at me, and I feel ignored." When she asked how I dealt with people staring at me, I quickly told her they are only staring at me because they are wondering how someone could possibly wear some of my outfits in public. "Women are intimidated by your beauty." I don't want to believe it, but women measure themselves against other women's attractiveness.I thought about what she said, and a lightbulb went off -- well, it was more the group of cyclists staring and drooling in our direction like we were naked, or her, rather -- whenit all came together. Because of this, making friends with someone more attractive, they fear, will somehow diminish their own attractiveness.If there is one phrase I’m tired of men dropping, it’s, “You’re intimidating.”Before I jump up on my soapbox and make myself even more “intimidating,” let me write a disclaimer: This article is not intended for the woman you are too afraid to approach.I can’t fix the mean girl who blows you off at the bar or the not-so-mean girl you just said has “resting bitch face (RBF).” (Also, I’m pretty sure my brain-on-fire-and-therefore-deep-in-thought face does not mean I’m a bitch, so please stop using “RBF”).
I am not a lesbian, but as a woman, I can appreciate a stunning woman. We met for coffee and I asked her about the adjustment.For all you know, the guy must have been rejected and laughed at plenty of times by pretty cheerleaders, during high school. Such an experience can shatter a man’s perception about himself and his confidence when it comes to impressing beautiful women. It is pretty obvious that a beautiful woman gets all the male attention she wants, and more. We’ve been talking for a while, maybe even tried the dating thing, and for whatever reason, you feel the need to inform me (as if I didn’t already know) that I’m intimidating.I applaud your honesty, but why are you telling me this?
