He’s intimidated and doesn’t want to look bad to you.
Instead, he tries to learn more about you and find some common ground. How dare you look amazing, act confident and be successful?
For me, it was February 29, 2016 — the day I presented as a woman as a software engineer at Ford Motor Co.
Although I dated women early on, in hindsight, I knew that something didn’t feel right as early as my teenage years.
It’s in the way you hold yourself and interact with those around you. At this point, he’s just trying to downgrade how awesome you are. It’s petty and stupid, but some guys think this makes them look better. Do you suddenly feel like the exchange has turned into an escalating tennis match? Remember, the right ones stick around to learn who you really are.
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.
When I realized I was attracted to men, I thought I was a gay man, and for years that’s how I identified.
It was during this time that I met my soon-to-be husband. Before the age of internet dating and mobile apps, there were newspaper ads.
She’s done it all; dating sites, meeting guys at cons, the comic store, chatting up friends from class and at work.
Being told “You’re too intimidating” is incredibly aggravating to women.
