Is it true that men are afraid to approach a woman they find extremely attractive, or is it just a line used to make these women feel better?
I am! I get stage fright like a nervous 15 yr old boy.

Well that's because realistic, practical men usually have no qualms about dating around and being a player if they're able to. The women who appreciate these men, are rejected by them. For this guy dating and conquests equal sport.

Both. Sometimes, it is used as a cop out.

But confident men do not have a problem approaching pretty women.

Women also label confident men as players if they flirt with a few women.

Oh yeah I get all kinds of intimidated. The way I get myself to be confident is to convence myself that she doesn't want anything to do with me, so then I don't care what she thinks of me and I can be comfortable, because If I think she wouldn't want to be with me than theres no reason to feel like I have to impress her, thus nothing to be shy about.

I end up making good conversation the only problem is, I end up coming off like I don't care all that much to have anything to do with her, when I potentially could care I'm just too shy to make the move.

Not intimidated man, but they get my blood flowing, it is harder to be 'cool' that's for sure.

Yes. Most men are intimidated by such women but there are still plenty who have the money and looks to play in their arena.

They are only single if they want to be. Generally the loot that they get from men makes marriage a dodgy proposition until they get close to losing their natural advantage. Then they snag a guy who they can manipulate.

I have a friend who is a successful attorney and she is mid 50's never been married. She has traveled all over the world, and is super smart, attractive, etc. I keep telling her that she has to RELAX when she is around guys because sometimes when smart people "throw their knowledge around" it gets intimidating and YES boring. I don't think its intimidation with most guys as much as it is being just plain bored at where the conversation is going or has been. I have seen her talk with guys and they almost look like they are falling asleep listening to her legal experience or the trips she has been on. Keep telling her to ask the guys about themselves..they like that stuff, someone who is interested in THEM.

No, I don't think men are afraid to approach extremely attractive women, most want someone good looking and vice versa. I feel that when a guy first meets a beautiful woman and she opens her mouth and starts talking and he doesn't get a word she said it starts to fall apart fast if her conversation is WAAAY above what he can understand. Basics, just the basics work when meeting someone new.

Then they are not aware of the true meaning of confidence. Machismo is an entirely different thing~
