YES YES YES YES YES they are!!!!


Been there a trillion times. I hate to say it but the saying that the pretty girls are always in the corner alone or sitting at home alone on a saturday night is true. I can't tell you how many zillions of times I went out and NO ONE approached me. I've been told over and over again that I'm too imtimidating. It gets really old. I can't tell you how many weekends I spent alone.

It seriously made me rethink my working out and taking care of myself. I mean yes I did it for myself but if no one was going to approach me to appreciate it why bother??

So which one is it? You expect a guy to just one girl a month? Why should he stop if he gets rejected?

The thing is that sometimes women want to believe nobody approaches them because they are “too attractive and smart” when actually the guys around her simply don’t find her attractive, smart, or both. It may sound harsh but I think everybody should think about this. There has been times where I simply don’t get a reaction as I expected from a girl I found interesting and attractive. Is it because I am “all that”? Nope, she just didn’t find me attractive, interesting, or both and I just have to accept it as it is and move on.

Do women ever think that guys don’t approach them simply because she is not attractive to them, interesting, or both?

This in a nutshell.

The fact of the matter is that no women is going to be every guy's type.

This is true but guys would think she is taken or get asked out left and right. Its phychology.

They should not wear makeup and wear loose shirt to look less attractive.

The thing is - there are some women that are beautiful and intimidating and there are some women that are beautiful and not intimidating. I think the intimidating ones probably get hit on a lot less than the not intimidating ones. And I think a lot can go into someone seeming intimidating or not - bone structure, hair, clothes, attitude, body type, etc. I'm short and pretty vivacious. I've only had one person say that he found me intimidating. It shocked the hell out of me!

Oh - and I'm not saying one is bad and the other is good - or that we all have control over this - these are just my observations.

The tall aggressive ones could be intimidating.

Yep, I have to admit that I am a bit intimidated by women I find attractive. As I get older, I still find myself to be a bit shy and I am sure the fear of rejection plays a big part. Rejection sucks and most guys would rather avoid the big R so they stay away. Of course, when I have a few beers in me...then the Dutch courage comes out and I can talk to most women.
