She looks intimidating
All of these are products of her story, and you love them. You just might not be able to get enough; and yes that can be frightening, but it can also be amazing.
You love them so much that you proudly tell her story for her; you tell it to your friends, family, colleagues and yourself in the mirror. If you like what's in front of you, take it off the market.
I’ve also noticed that I’m not the only one who prefers a woman who can hold her own.
Many of my friends have married women who are particularly successful in their own right—from doctors to lawyers to businesswomen—and many of my single friends are definitely looking for someone who is confident and can take care of herself. I can see why women might not realize that guys appreciate things like self-sufficiency.
As a buddy of mine puts it: “I don’t want her to need me, but I do want her to rely on me, as I want to be able to rely on her.”There’s something about a woman who is doing some cool things with her own life that makes me want to get my own act together.
I applaud your honesty, but why are you telling me this?I'm not talking about the woman you're too scared to talk to.I'm talking about the woman that you dream of, finally find and chase down, but then are too afraid to date.If there is one phrase I'm tired of men dropping, it's, “You're intimidating."Before I jump up on my soapbox and make myself even more "intimidating," let me write a disclaimer: This article is not intended for the woman you are too afraid to approach.
