If there is one phrase I'm tired of men dropping, it's, “You're intimidating.”Before I jump up on my soapbox and make myself even more “intimidating,” let me write a disclaimer: This article is not intended for the woman you are too afraid to approach.
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”).
And if they are intimidated, is that good intimidation (as I suspect), or is it more of a turn-off thing?
I asked many of my friends who often get the “he is just intimidated by you” line why they think they fit the mold of a hard-to-approach gal.
I am not a lesbian, but as a woman, I can appreciate a stunning woman. We met for coffee and I asked her about the adjustment.Seriously, I am also guilty of being threatened by other women's beauty. I accompanied my brother Seth, an actor, to an audition for Pepsi in Los Angeles.This audition was different then the many others I attended.Have you ever been faced with that impossible question from a friend?She looks you in the eye and asks for the truth—for one moment of brutal honesty: “Why doesn’t he like me? I don’t know about you, but when I tell my friends they are intimidating, what I mean is that they are just too awesome for the guy.That is, unless you want women to just start calling you a resting assh*le (“RA” for short).
