OK I had to click on your profile to see if you had a picture. I don't think you look scary at all!

LOL I also looked. I thought she sorta has a bit of Angelina Jolie going on. You'd be referred to as "exotic" looking, which of course seems to be intimidating to men as well.

Not really scary, but unapproachable. Aside from men who are also tatted up that are rarely my type, I'm almost never approached in a setting where I may appear available. The men who are my type are sometimes intimidated because they don't think they're my type because the majority are opposite of me in terms of appearance. My type tends to have very straight-laced appearances.

My first response was Angelina Jolie as well.

You do not look unapproachable. I would suggest getting into some settings where you can meet the type of guys you like in a no pressure situation. Maybe a meet up group or something?

Yes, the movies. That's my spot. My type tends to flock to sci-fi, fantasy and action/superhero movies. It's that time of year soon. I don't have a problem with the medium I use (online). It's just these men would not approach me in an offline setting.

Here's something I learned. Looks fade for most people. A person can look good but have no substance. I would take a plain Jane who I know will be by my side in hard times over a cheerleader who is physically beautiful anyday.

Women who live by their looks get replaced due to looks. If you look as good as you project don't wait too long giving a guy a chance because that clock is ticking and no matter how bangin you may be there's always more younger women entering the pool.

I assume you hang out with more geeky men then (whatever that words means now, since apparently it is in vogue now to be geeky) ?

If that's the case the men might not be the type to usually approach a woman in a direct romantic fashion. They could be shy or just have poor experiences with approaching in general. You may have to take some of the onus upon yourself to initiate conversations, or at least put yourself in a situation where you will interact with them enough so that flirting can come out naturally.

If you lived where I do, you'd have men clamoring to talk to you at the geeky meetups.
