Why Do Men Label Women As Intimidating?

This post today is dedicated to my fellas, who have left some women confused when labeling them as intimidating. According to the Merriam- Webster dictionary intimidating is defined as the following:

: causing a loss of courage or self-confidence: producing feelings of fear or timidity.

This very word can leave a level of uncertainty for any woman in this dating world because many women don’t know how to take it, is it a positive or negative adjective? Communication is the foundation of forming any good relationship and honesty is key, but being labeled as intimidating is a hard pill to swallow, especially when she is seeking companionship.

The world has labeled these type of women as Alpha women. Alpha women are viewed as individuals who are boss chicks, exude confidence, are strong-minded and independent and can take care of themselves. However, everyone wants to be loved and calling any woman intimidating that you are trying to pursue can also frustrate her and make her feel as though she has to tone herself down to find love. Honestly, when dealing with an Alpha woman, this may turn her off, and you could lose out on a great woman.  

So, fellas, I wanted to keep this short and simple, what are some reasons why you label a woman as intimidating? Or are you not intimidated by a woman?

  1. To acknowledge intimidation is more of an inditement on the one who feels that way. There are personal reasons why people fear to approach you none of which have anything to do with you. If a man is attracted to you and can deal with being accepted or rejected there won’t be a feeling of intimidation. In short fear blocks every blessing…… But I ain’t scared yo!!!!! So what’s up????

  2. I never find a woman intimidating. And for you women who run across men who do just know you’re dealing with a Beta Male.

  3. Only time a guy feels that a woman is intimidating is when she has herself together and he doesnt have nothing to bring to the table but lies and headaches.

  4. Well I myself have never found a woman with good qualities to be intimidating. If you are interested in a woman who you feel as though your not on her level so to say, then there is plenty of opportunities to level yourself up so that the things she has going for herself are not a concern to your relationship but a plus. You have to match her fly 😎

  6. I don’t believe that “Intimidation” is the best way or word to describe how guys feel lol. Speaking from personal experience(through my friends) , I can honestly say that most men are scared of rejection, embarrassment, and not being the ALPHA. So when a woman is strong willed, determined, stern, and or can hold her ground, guys do take a step back. In my opinion, only because TRADITIONALLY Men, dominate. But when roles are unexpectedly reversed I think we’re more shocked than intimidated. BUT, when a women STICKS to those actions and follows through on being stern is when the “MAN” gets intimidated. Once again, …… MY OPINION lol.
