I guess I'm weird cuz I haven't been intimidated by looks since I was a teen.

Have I been floored at first sight of a woman cuz of her looks? Yes, but not intimidated.

When I was in high school I worked in a men's clothing store in the mall. There were these glass cubicles stacked up around the place, about my height, for shirts and the like. This kid, who maybe was in grade school or junior high school, was with his mom. I turned and noticed he was looking at me and as I did he smacked his whole body and head into those glass cubicles and it knocked him on his ass.

I still wouldn't approach her. Attractive women make me nervous.

Lol.

I'm sure he recalls it with much fondness too.

In my adult life it has only happened a few times.

About 3 years ago a complete knockout was walking across the street into a pizza joint. I was in my car and ran a stop sign as my mind shut down all activity except her image.

The cop who pulled me over gave me a warning with a chuckle. He hadn't seen her. Probably wanted to hurry up with me so he could go inside the pizza joint.

No.

In fact, I made friends with a former Dolphins cheerleader and her cute 20 y/o daughter this past weekend. Both were at the bar (higher end sports bar) and asked for MY contact info.

I think it's because I was just having normal conversation with them and they didn't feel hounded or intimidated.

I've known a few NFL cheerleaders through my life. It's really funny how intimidated some guys get. They're just normal girls that look good.

I think theres a certain hurdle a normal guy has to get past to even approach a super beautiful woman. So the answer to your question is yes.

What's the hurdle?

Rejection?

If it's a cold walk up (never seen her before) then that could happen no matter what she looks like.

In my late 20's I was employed by a large university that is located in a warm climate area and known for its attractive undergraduate women. There was a large hill on the edge of the campus where dozens or possibly even hundreds of them would sunbathe in bikinis daily, nearly all year 'round. My drive from home to work and back took me right by there every day. To this day I am amazed that I never wrecked my car there.
