The first and last ones are those that come to mind off hand.

You would think wrong, then. Google "NFL cheerleader pay."

I wouldn't say that guys are "intimidated" by attractive women. Rather, I think they think that they're going to somehow become high maintenance, so why bother.

It's usually taken to mean that she will require more emotional attention, gift giving, special dates, and romantic occasions than other women.

There's your answer. The men who are interested in you who don't follow through.. could be they already have someone else, feel intimidated or insecure you may have other guys interested, or are "playing it cool."

Beautiful women get approached all the time. Some guys in certain situations are more subtle about it.

I don't think I've ever seen a beautiful woman not have hoards of guys paying them attention in one way or another.. and, they get asked out quite often.

Maybe not always overtly like at work, but they eventually find their way to you. They really do.

I can certainly relate to your post.
Guys here who don't want to admit that they are intimidated ( not even a tiny bit) are probably lying to themselves. Otherwise why not approach the girl if you think she looks so good physically, instead of coming up with excuses based on false stereotypes that most people here have about "beautiful" women?

I've personally seen all sorts of reactions coming from guys -and ladies- when they first meet me but really, it's never a good thing to judge someone off their appearance; because the majority of beautiful women I've personally come across with are actually not bad people and are easy going down to earth people.

You just have to be willing to get past the appearance and get to know them personally.
Good luck OP and just be patient; i'm sure there's someone out there that will be willing to do just that.

The worst thing is if you are someone who likes to dress up and look good, people immediately think that you must be a gold digger, not approachable, and high maintenance-which makes absolutely no sense. Smh

Do you think that could be a positive? A man has to be secure with himself before approaching you?

So, it just seems that beautiful women usually seem to be high maintenance. By that, I mean expensive clothes, expensive cars, multiple credit cards, the need for vacations, etc. In other words, very expensive.

that's actually not true. I know a couple guys with beautiful girlfriends who are very low maintenance

It just all depends. Don't judge a book by a cover
