Do men find me intimidating
"If a guy uses intimidation as a reason to dump the woman, that's kind of crazy.' I'm afraid you're too good for me so I'm dumping you?I can’t fix the mean girl who blows you off at the bar or the not-so-mean girl you just said has “resting bitch face (RBF).” (Also, I’m pretty sure my brain-on-fire-and-therefore-deep-in-thought face does not mean I’m a bitch, so please stop using “RBF”).That is, unless you want women to just start calling you a resting assh*le (“RA” for short). If a woman keeps hearing from men that she’s “intimidating”, what is she supposed to do – besides start approaching men who have more self-confidence and fewer issues? She’s geeky to her Joss-Whedon-loving core, a Whovian, Vertigo-reading, 3rd edition D&D (none of that 4th ed crap thank you very much) gamer with the con stories to prove it.

Guys say “intimidating” like it’s a compliment, but the way it’s presented usually feels like a sort of cop-out, like a preemptive “It’s not me, it’s you” that doesn’t actually mean anything.This is not to say that you should feel the need to actually alter your personality just because someone finds you a little intimidating. Is he enthusiastic about this, but he doesn't seem to know how to take it to the next level?I applaud your honesty, but why are you telling me this?There’s nothing that guys love more than to throw around the word “intimidating” as an excuse for not making a move on someone.
