An intimidating woman
I can say no easily."Jennie: "My friends think I am intimidating because I work in a corporate business environment which would at times be associated with rigor/aggressive natured people.It’s an environment that breeds people to become coarse or cold emotionally in order to get to the next level.” You search your brain for some reason as to why this fool isn’t falling over himself for your incredible friend and come up with only one plausible answer. I see my intimidating friends as strong, assertive women.These are things that I admire and wish I saw in myself. But sometimes I wonder if my quippy response is correct; is it really intimidation that keeps the men from my fabulous friends?
I prefer to discuss big ideas and thoughtful insights instead of small talk, so if there's ever a time I mention my accomplishments, it’s reflective rather than hubris.There’s nothing that guys love more than to throw around the word “intimidating” as an excuse for not making a move on someone.In fact, the archetype of guys being scared out of their minds of cool, powerful, self-assured women is basically the oldest one of all time– just ask Beyonce or Serena Williams–so, if you’ve ever been called intimidating, you’re in good company. 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.Dating a woman with no filter — a woman who tells it like it is and doesn’t mince words — is a pretty f*cking special experience.If you’ve got her, congratulations, because you’re in for a wild ride.
