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:
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.
If you're super smart, he's going to have trouble finding something to talk to you about. He won't want to bring up a topic that he's clueless about, because he won't want you to think that he's dumb. Of course, he won't want to bring up something mindless either, because he'll assume that it's too dull for you to talk about. That's why he might psych himself out and avoid talking to you entirely.
Confident women are sexy women, and sexy women are hard to talk to. He won't be able to walk up to you without having butterflies flutter around in his stomach. That's why he might keep his distance from you, even if he has a crush on you. He's trying to work up his own confidence, so that he can have a flirty conversation with you.
If you have tons of friends, men might be intimidated by you. After all, it means that there are plenty of people who are happy to have you in their life. With that many people around you, why would you want to spend time with him? That's his main worry, which is why he might be too scared to ever approach you.
Men go on and on about wanting their girlfriends to be honest, but when they find a blunt woman, it can throw them off. After all, they're not used to getting talked back to and receiving honest opinions. That's why they can be intimidated by women who aren't afraid to speak their minds.
Some men assume that all of us women act the same. Of course, we all have different likes and hobbies. When they stumble across a woman unlike one they've ever met before, they're going to be intimidated, because they won't know how to get her attention.
Isn't it nerve-wracking to walk up to the hottest guy in school? Well, men feel the same way. When a woman is super attractive, he'll have a hard time starting a conversation with her. She intimidates him, so he doesn't want to do or say the wrong thing.
Yes, there are absolutely men out there threatened by a woman's career choice. Whether it's feeling inferior because of her power, her position, or even his own career path when compared to hers, some men can't handle a woman in a well-respected career.
Sure while being a perfectionist is totally great in some aspects of life, a relationship is not one of them. A man could feel a woman's perfectionist nature is always criticizing him, or he could feel he has super high expectations to live up to and always feeling like a failure which isn't healthy.
Men love a woman with drive, and perseverance, and a go-getter attitude when it comes to work. Men do not like a woman who focuses all her time and energy on work and not him. Men need love and attention too so make sure work isn't your life.
These qualities aren't negative. They aren't something you should try to change. They're something you should be proud of! Do you possess any or all of these intimidating traits?
