We won’t know if someone is out of our league until we try and do something about it. Passiveness won’t get women/men too far in life.



Well, that was one, gotta keep trying.



Well, that was two hahaha!

Men get rejected and get back on their feet. You can do it too. You seem easy to talk to so I don’t see how you being this way would be a turn off to a man you find attractive.



Approaching married women is not something I want to do either.
I'm not giving up..just not being too productive about dating right now. I have 5 dance shows coming up within the next month, plus school and work and having a social life. so I don't really care at this point. and ya, that one married guy was in my class with no ring until halfway into the semester..how was I supposed to know?? lol but its not like I approached him. he sat next to me so naturally, we talked.

I don't know but one of my friends told me that the reason that I got hit on so much was because I was really pretty - but not too pretty. He then went on to tell me that my friend was too pretty - like drop dead gorgeous - so that I probably got hit on more than her. I was like... "Thanks?"

That's a pretty odd concept alright... Of course, sharing it is even more bizarre of him!

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?
There are men who are, others aren't. It depends on confidence level.

The most attractive the woman is, the more attitude she has. Less attractive woman are nicer.

Had the cutest guy sit next to me in biology all semester a couple years ago and we talked all the time, and he was very nice, always helping me out if I struggled with a concept (gosh, he was smart too!!). well, after thanksgiving break, he had a fracking ring on his finger! I was crushed . I should have made friends with him though, in case he had equally cute and smart friends. I'll remember that next time. Thing is, after a good friend of man accused me of essentially being a man stealer, I hesitate to befriend taken men. Not to mention, that might be inappropriate anyways.
A whole bunch of Handsome smart guys that hang out together....... You may not have missed out

Every body's different - there are some men who would just stand in awe, and assume the woman has the pick and won't pick them. There are some men who think this, but the hunter wins out and they give it a nudge anyway. There are FAR TOO MANY men who think they are gorgeous and are just waiting for a blind supermodel to walk their way.

My sister was always very popular for her looks back in HS, college and later on. She never had a problem meeting men.
This in a nutshell.

I made a thread about this topic myself and I believe the idea that men(generally) are intimidated by pretty women is crap. Some men may be intimidated but I seriously doubt that these pretty women are not getting attention at all. And if she's not getting attention then she needs to change something.

I wouldn't say that I'm intimidated by pretty women, but I am definitely different around them. Always watching what I do and say.
