Assuming you're really good looking, the quiet brainy types won't approach you unless they have the letters MD after their names, are inventors like Steve Jobs, or have a big trust fund/inheritance. Those are their "pen!s extenders." Let's not sugarcoat.

3-4 in the looks? He's either playing modest or he's insecure. Either way I'd say he's attractive but then again I'm a man.

To the OP. I think 90% of all men are intimidated by really beautiful women. What I don't care for is to approach a woman who constantly gets approached by a lot of men. I feel like I'm feeding her ego by being one of the many. I don't want to be one of the many of anything! On the other hand I'm mostly attracted to interesting quirky woman who get approached, but not at the rate of the "Classic" beautiful women!

People feed me the "men are just intimidated by you" line all the time. I think its bogus. If that were the case, then the super awkward and insecure guys would never approach me..but then again, I attract either that, or the super over confident egomaniacs..blech. so ya, bottom line, I believe if a man really is interested, he'll find a way to work up some guts if he knows the opportunity to get the girl won't always be there.

We're either intimidated, or assume they aren't very bright. This is just a generalization and shouldn't mean much.

That’s right. I also believe that the woman who is interested in a man will also work up some guts and do something.

There are men that can be intimidated by beautiful women. You will also have women who think men are intimidated at them when in reality men simply don’t find her attractive, interesting, OR BOTH.

Nope, if anything I am more comfortable talking to pretty girls. I don't know about you guys, but some of the prettiest girls I know have been extremely smart and some of the nicest girls I know. If you think about it, it's usually the ugly girls who are spiteful and rude.

Well...I did date a couple MD's.

Guys my age never really approached me so they were usually 10 years older.

I married a guy younger than me, brainy (definitely from GeekyMcNerdville), above moderate ego but not a raging A-hole, and PhD after his name.

I think thats another problem too. We always worry that if you do approach them you will fall into one of two categories, the "insecure" type, or the "egomaniac" type. I think that you are making preconceived notions about these guys who approach you. How do women expect us to approach them when we are doomed if we do, and doomed if we don't...?

That's why if there was a guy I wanted to date, I'd ask him out myself, because if I waited for him to muster up the nerve it would never happen.

I will never ask a man out but if I'm interested, I will show it, one way or another, trust me. the kind of man I'm looking for, if I have to ask him out, he will never step up and man up to anything, or he could just be humoring me..which is fine, but not what I'm looking for.
