Her Work Schedule

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Same, I have some of these traits so then I'm in the same boat as Thalia, we'll never land a guy lol But I also agree these things wouldn't intimidate REAL men

Well, i have all of them and I am married to a wonderful man who was patient enough to wait for me to learn to let him lead in certain social occasions.... It's all about moderation, I believe. :)

i have these traits, n i feel i need to get rid of them sometimes, cuz sadly im still single lol

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

Notice the title said intimidating a man, not trying to get a man by intimidation. If you're intimidating, or not, I don't see how it hinder the chances of getting a guy, so nobody needs to stress.

I think these traits intimidate BOYS not men

Me too and single

Well. I don't know what to say (or be) after reading this article. I have a suggestion, just like we search for information on their favourite football/sports team, or pretend to know all about their dream car model, to feigning being knowledgeable about gadgets or other guy things, they can once in a while do that too for us.. It's difficult to find a middle way here .. Men don't like independent women, men also don't like women who are conscious of themselves or too shy. Men don't like dumb women, but then intelligent women can intimidate them. Men wouldn't want to date someone unattractive because they always want arm candy, but then they are intimidated by attractive women. I am super confused after reading this! (Haha)

So that's just about every woman then?
