My thing is, I never really value the opinion of someone who needs makeup to look presentable in public.

It certainly helps to think the best of people, and then put the ball in their court.

The only woman I am, or have ever been intimidated by, is my beautiful wife.

And you know other men and women seem to feel the same way about her. Why? She's one of THOSE rare beauties and talents!

And I am the lucky son of a gun who snatched her up.

IMO, if you are anything like my wife, males your age would be crazy not to snatch you up.

But my wife is the whole package! She is talented in almost every area of life, kind hearted, and good looking to boot!

Exactly! And this works in all aspects of life, not just dating or relationships.

It is always better to proceed with the assumption that people, at least deep down, are kind and sensitive, and that nobody wants to hurt you on purpose. One should also treat the unpleasant events as mere aberrations and move on. Then life would be beautiful.

I don't think so. I'm very introverted and people read me wrong most of the time. They assume I am cold and aloof when I am just absent-minded & shy. I'm very open to people if they approach me.

This is a good "strategy", in any situation. I guess it feels vulnerable, as if you're leaving yourself open to rejection, but I suppose you could switch perspective on it & see it as giving them a standard to live up to, and if they don't reciprocate, then they YOU are rejecting them for it.

Well, I'm also very introverted. Most people label me as "reserved," but nothing about me says ******y, cold, or aloof. I've learned that body language plays a large role.

Introverts and their resting b*tch face. I'm an introvert. How I appear to others depends on the situation, but I am one to make eye contact and smile at people. I have had men share they were intimidated by me or would be in person. Must be all the tattoos I have. I look really scary.

Maybe some guys, but not me.

As I've gotten older, I pay more attention to chemistry than looks. Of course, I will approach the hot girl, but I'll know pretty quickly if our chemistry is right.
