10 Traits You Have That Can Intimidate a Man ...

There are certain qualities that most of us have that can intimidate some men. However, they aren't negative qualities. They're actually positive qualities that cause men to love us as much as they do. Of course, when they love us, it's harder for them to gather the courage to talk to us, because they don't want to embarrass themselves. So if your crush hasn't been approaching you, even though it seems like he likes you, it might be because he's intimidated by these qualities:

1 Independent Women

Independent Women Some men don't know how to handle an independent woman. They were used to opening jars, changing tires, and paying the bills for their exes, so when they end up dating an independent woman, they learn that everything they grew up believing was a lie. They're intimidated by independent women, because we don't need them. We only keep them around if we want them.

Many men are intimidated by independent women because they are used to being in control, and independent women don’t require them to be in control. Independent women are strong and self-sufficient, and they don’t need a man to pay their bills or open jars for them. They can take care of themselves and don’t rely on anyone else to do it for them.

Independent women are also confident and comfortable in their own skin. They know who they are and what they want, and they don’t need anyone else to tell them how to live their lives. They have a strong sense of self-worth and are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in.

Independent women are also often successful in their careers. They are ambitious and driven, and they don’t let anyone stand in their way. They are always striving for more and don’t settle for anything less than what they deserve.

Finally, independent women are independent thinkers. They don’t follow trends or the opinions of others, and they are not afraid to speak their minds. They are well-informed and educated, and they have their own opinions on a variety of topics.

I have all of these traits and I still cannot scare my husband off.

Lara, it's not not about making a man who is intimidated, un intimidated, it's having someone who sees those qualities in you and instead of shying away from you, admiring you and embracing the things about you that push others away

Well, I have all of them and I have a lot of guy friends. :/

Men should appreciate these positive qualities in women.. the right man will definitely be proud to have a woman like this .. I believe too..
