As men, we have a lot of pride. We will have faith in ourselves and believe that no circumstance is too large for us to overcome. We also believe that we can win with women effortlessly. This is false, as no one is ever 100% successful with women or even 100% confident. Men can be intimidated by women for many reasons.
You Are Attractive
Our society promotes beauty (well their standards) and portrays attractive people in a certain light. From the tv shows to movies an magazines, you see different beauty benchmarks and the expectations with it. A man will see an attractive woman and may be hesitant they assume a few things. We know that as the great Chris rock once said: women get offered dick 10 times a day. If you are above average in looks, that number must grow exponentially. So we figure that you have heard it all before from other men, and we have to devise a way to come at you properly. We may also assume that you are conceited or full of yourself, and we don’t want to give you the satisfaction of our admiration. It sounds petty, but I’m sure every man has at least 3 stories about an attractive women who acted like a douche for no real reason. We build upon our experiences and move accordingly.
Men Don’t Want To Say The Wrong Thing
Men are considered the aggressors in the courting process. More often than not, we initiate the conversation. The last thing we want to do is sound corny or idiotic when attempting to form basic sentences. Even the most confident man has to admit that they have been slow to pull the trigger when engaging a woman in their lives before. It’s normal. Some of the greatest athletes and performers in the world admit to having butterflies in their stomach before a huge event. Those butterflies are nice ways to say they were nervous, intimidated, and hyper aware of the magnitude of the situation. Men are the same way with women. Once you speak up and get through any initial awkwardness, you are good.
They Genuinely Like You
Men who genuinely like a woman will be intimidated by the circumstances more so than the lady. Men will think towards the future and start questioning whether the woman in commitment material. They will weigh the pros and cons. They will fear failure and be worried about making a wrong decision. They will scrutinize bad decisions they make in dealings with women. It’s a lot to handle. The situation can be a little frightening, but with experience we come to realize that this is normal. Still you can’t front on the human feelings associated with these decisions.
Intimidation is normal. Some men will front and say they have never been intimidated by a woman, which is bs. Hell my mom put that type of fear in my heart when I needed to shape up! Sensual feelings don’t always have to be a catalyst for intimidation either. Women are strong, powerful, and a headache at times. We struggle as men to understand you, but we appreciate you. Hope this helps you get a glimpse into our crazy minds too.
