He has to come up with something more impressive than anything you have to say. You know that little voice in the back of your mind that’s constantly analyzing every moment when you start flirting with a guy? Except when they feel intimidated, the little voice is so loud they can’t maintain a conversation. She's a tech geek at heart, but loves telling it like it is when it comes to love, beauty and style.
He thinks it’ll make him seem like your equal or better. They get distracted trying to figure out how to respond or how to make themselves seem good enough in your eyes. A better man takes the approach of simply not talking about himself much. She's enjoys writing music, poetry and fiction and hopes to have her first novel out soon.
Sometimes, if you're pushed to work alone because others feel overwhelmed by your presence, it can act as the drive you need to embark on many projects yourself--an action that might even result in fantastic results, whether you know it at the beginning or not.
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.
I'm not talking about the woman you're too scared to talk to.
I'm talking about the woman that you dream of, finally find and chase down, but then are too afraid to date.
Those who are called intimidating are usually regarded as such because they know how to win.
They're used to being the best, and they aren't afraid to do what they need to in order to get there.
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.
