Women intimidating men physically
Given this growing ascendancy, one might surmise that men have started to feel emasculated, put off by financially independent, strong women who make their own way because of the fear they're losing value as men.
Some people opine that men are less attracted to a woman who is on an equal or higher level when it comes to matters of the pocketbook or education, and that a successful woman should dumb herself down to get a man.

Meanwhile he had no problem talking to one of my friends, who was completely standoffish, yet I was intimidating? I'm asking you guys, because this is not the first time I heard this from a guy.
Oftentimes, I think women lead with their accomplishments, as if their bona fides alone will attract a man, and I don't necessarily think that approach works.
In fact, most men find these qualities very attractive and will brag to their friends and family about what a smart, great girl they have found.
In fact, we're beginning to surpass men in many areas: We have more master's and college degrees, better GPAs and single, childless women have higher earnings than their male counterparts in urban areas.
By 2025, more than half the primary breadwinners in America will be women.
A couple of my guy friends have also called me intimidating. I would like men to feel like they can approach me though, so maybe this is a two part question.
I joke that more men should "man up" which always kinda reinforces their argument. I don't want to intimidate men, but I don't plan on creating some persona to appease their fears either. I'm curious about what makes men intimidated by a woman?
Ladies, what makes a guy husband material, and Gentlemen, what makes a woman wife material?
