He is an intimidating man
In American culture, movies and media, there is a strong push for an archetype of the “strong woman.” How many movies have you seen where a woman acts like a complete pain in the ass the whole movie and the protagonist dude chases her around the entire movie like a puppy dog?
I’ve even seen it in a children’s movie (I think it was “How to Train Your Dragon”). Guys with any power to choose will actively Why would a guy want to choose a negative influence in his life?
The answers I found were actually super enraging — especially on one particular Reddit post I’d stumbled across.
Some answered, “If she’s better looking than me,” while others brought up words like “smarter,” “stronger,” “funnier,” and “outspoken.” Women who made more money than their male counterparts, or had a better job or seemed more successful in general, were also penalized.
Maybe you know some women like this or possibly are one.
A question that I am often posed by them is this: “What do Christian guys think of women like me?
Some of these skills are obtained out of necessity, but nevertheless many men find these qualities quite attractive.
The queer men and women I spoke to had never been given the excuse of intimidation as the reason why they weren’t finding dates (though, admittedly, my findings are 100% anecdotal).
So, being a woman who used to mold and fold herself to meet society’s standards of “the girl he wants to date,” I started Googling to see exactly what men found intimidating in a woman, all in an effort to fix it in myself.
However, now that I’ve come to the repeated conclusion that intimidation played a role in my recent failed dating endeavors, I feel like maybe I should rethink my stance—especially because in all of those cases that explanation seemed completely likely and totally logical.
Therefore, I would like to figure out whether it is factually possible for a guy to reject a girl on the ground that she intimidated him. Everything about me matched up perfectly with what this guy was looking for.
