As much as we all want to think that guys can handle their own around girls, the truth is that a lot of men are intimidated by women. Think about how many tropes you’ve heard involving men who get shy, stutter, and stammer around beautiful, intelligent and ambitious women — it happens a lot more than you think. Here are some signs that you’re a bit too badass for many men to handle:
1. Guys Tend To Look At You, But Won’t Approach You.
This is a good sign that you’re either dressed strangely, or really hot to the point of untouchable. Simply put, guys do believe that girls are out of their league, and you automatically fit in this category.
2. They Constantly Try To Tear You Down.
It’s called “negging,” and it’s the way a guy drags a girl down to his level. Don’t fall for it.
3. You’re Considered The “Hot” Friend In The Group, And You’re Still Single.
You’re single because of the fact that everyone’s too petrified to actually talk to you. You’re an amazing woman and have so much to offer the world, but finding a guy who’s up to the task is easier said than done.
4. You Have Your Shit Together, But Don’t Get Too Many Offers.
Guys usually will gravitate to hot messes when it comes to quickies. They want to feel like they have the upper hand. This leads to less offers for good women – but the offers tend to be higher quality.
5. The Guy In Question Stammers, Blushes, Or Seems Abnormally Tense Around You.
These are classic signs of a poor guy being flustered in front of a girl. If you see him doing this, he’s probably too intimidated to ask you out.
