Gender norms are shifting, and it can be hard for guys to get used to the idea of a woman who not only matches but potentially surpasses their strength.That still doesn't mean the "you're intimidating" excuse should have any legs!It means the men in question should get over it and learn to love the idea of meeting a woman who is a match in every area.

midating com - Men find me intimidating

We're Leaning In, trying to have it all, and making milestones in the process. I always thought "you're intimidating" was a paltry excuse a guy can whip out when he feels uncomfortable 'fessing up to the reality that he's just not into you.

But is there a romantic cost to being such a trailblazer? Besides that, it also seems like a common reason girlfriends use to explain why one of their own is perennially single.

Does crushing it at the gym, climbing the ladder at work, and looking put together while doing it actually scare men off? I asked my boyfriend whether this is more of a convenient reason guys use to break off a budding relationship or a legitimate feeling they might have when dealing with a powerful woman. after he starts talking to the woman in question," says Blake.

"If a guy uses intimidation as a reason to dump the woman, that's kind of crazy.

There's nothing sexier than a guy who understands that he's dealing with a formidable, sexy, capable woman and rises to the occasion.

If he's not able to do that because he's just too intimidated, well, that's fine.He can learn to deal with that feeling, just not with you.' I'm afraid you're too good for me so I'm dumping you?' That guy must be really insecure, and worrying that because this girl is such a catch she's bound to dump him.It's a way to keep his pride intact." So my assumption was incorrect, which is kind of a relief because I can't stand when people are dishonest about the real reason they're ending things.On the other hand, how frustrating is it that men can be freaked out by impressive women?
