If you see a person who's extraordinarily beautiful/handsome are you afraid to approach or talk to them? I've been present on numerous occassions when such individuals bemoan never being approached and going home alone from the bars.

What's been your experience?

There is no reason to be intimidated by someone's looks. Looks are only part of the equation that makes up a person. And I can say from the experience of someone that dated someone way out of my league in the looks department, that looks don't stand the test of time. And I don't mean that their looks change. I'm saying that once you've been intimate with them, the feelings you have towards their looks become far less powerful. That's why you see even incredibly beautiful people getting cheated on.

I used to get intimated when I was younger or maybe I was really shy. Either way looks do not scare me anymore.

Yes, I've been scared, and paid the penalty. Like I said, I knew someone who scared off guys like nothing I've seen. I mean to the point of hilarious. It is a reality.

Some people get a bad rap for all the wrong reasons. One of my friends was known as the teaching assistant you just don't mess with. When I first came across her, I was like, I don't know, she is pretty cute. My lack of fear earned her as a friend. I was the only guy student she seemed to speak to. Turns out, she was really quite nice, and only had frustration with students doing poorly.

The friend of the one particular girl I liked made me think twice. She came off as real cocky sometimes, and would say **** like, I only want the cool people on my team in gym class. I was like, man, if I strike out, I gotta' listen to that ****. LMAO. Later on she was in one of my classes, and I realized she was really just being sarcastic most of the time, and she really wasn't that bad. She was just a bit of a character.

If I'm being introduced to them, then I wouldn't be intimated by them. No lack of fear. If I don't know them and see them around all the time, I would be because I think they don't want to get to know someone like me.

Not intimidated. I treat everyone the same, regardless of what they look like, their race, age, etc.

No. I am not. If someone complains no one approaches them it isn't because they're "too good looking". LOL It's because something about them makes people think they're not approachable. And they will always be unapproachable if they don't re-evaluate themselves and how they carry themselves or how they come across to others.

Afraid of approaching them? Why? I admit it is beyond me why people shy away from talking with good looking people. In the end they do have their own issues. There are many hot women that look themselves in the mirror and think they are not that hot. So when you see them realize they have the same concerns even though to you or others may not think so, take care.
