This is a very interesting thread. I've heard the whole "intimidation" thing for awhile now, and never put much stock in it. But it seems like quite a few guys are saying that they are...

I think that sometimes people have to do the opposite of whats expected of them.

But on the bright side of that, you get to choose the kind of guys you want to approach and you wouldn't have to deal with a lot of guys that you don't anything to do with.

Oh trust me I make the move if I find someone attractive and I notice they're scared. I have no problem approaching someone

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

Sorry dear, this isn't in my head....

Seams like to many women are looking for Gorgeous Hunk Of Manliness.

And the men are looking for the women who is a 10 / boarder line 11.

Down the road of life neither one of them is satisified,
and they start looking again.

Can a guy get intimidated? Sure, why not. Women/men can get intimidated out there. Now, have you ever thought that a guy might not approach you for the simple reason that he doesn’t find you attractive and/or smart?

I'm only speaking for myself, but I would imagine plenty of other women feel the same way I do, which is that we assume most guys aren't interested unless they approach us. And even then I question whether they're just making small talk/being friendly or actually testing the waters because they're attracted.
