So what will the OP do when she is old and wrinkly and still finds herself single?

Head over to the retirement forum. There is a sticky on elderly women who are single and very lonely!

Nice post. Your post applies in many others including the ones from 5 to 10 years ago. Things haven't changed. The OP should do something different. You can't get a different result by doing the same things over and over lol

Beautiful women don't join internet message boards to ask strangers questions like this. Nor do they go on and on about how beautiful they are and such. Unless they are insecure themselves. Im sure in a few weeks we will all be able to look back on your posting history and find that it doesn't exist, save for the few replies you make here.

Beautiful women don't have to tell others how beautiful they are either.

I do not know why people are ganging up on the OP.

Anyway, to answer the OP: Yes, men (even the good-looking ones) are often intimidated by beautiful girls. It is pretty obvious. Since men are conditioned to do the pursuing, so to speak, rejection is a possibility even if they approach 'average' girls. So with beautiful girls, well, you do the math.

Plus, don't you look like one of those cheer leaders anyways? Why would a girl like you be desperate.

So you are going to mix business with pleasure?

So why is this the guy for you?
Ha, I know PLENTY of men who think a woman is desperate or an easy lay if they ask a man out. I've been told that straight to my face several times.

As for the OP...no, I don't believe most men are intimidated by beautiful women. The beautiful women I've known over the years have always had a line of potential suitors just standing by.

Info - I believe there are two options here:

1) The OP is a man living in his parents basement, talking about being an NFL cheerleader/real estate agent.
In this case, let him have his fun. If that's the case, he deserves some outlet for his life.

2) The OP genuinely is living a life where she feels like guys don't really see her.

If that's the case, then we should try to be supportive.

Dancer: Part of the issue might be that men don't see past the uniform. They don't see the person who is underneath. The guys who are hitting on you half-heartedly in your dress aren't -really- hitting on you. They're hitting on what they imagine you to be.

Then, when you take off the uniform you become someone who is probably fun, flirty and most guys imagine you must have a ton of men waiting around the corner. That intimidates them as they imagine the relationship will be a constant detente with other men, which could be exhausting.

Yes, some men are intimidated by that. It's not fair, but I wouldn't worry too much about that. You probably don't want to be dating someone who is intimidated by you, anyway. Who would?

I'm curious to know if the OP's peers on her squad have the same problem?? Or is she in the minority?

Outside of that it's rare I'll ever get hit on. During the week I work at as a realtor and many of the men I show places to will flirt with me but never ask me out.

This one guy I was really interested in asked my coworker about me by email (he showed me the email between them). He pretty much said he thought I was beautiful and wanted to know if I was single. My coworker told him yes but he never sent him another email. Today I gave him a tour of another property and the whole time he didn't ask me out! I am baffled. This happens all the time! A guy will ask someone about me and not say a word to me personally. There was another customer I had that did the same thing...asked a coworker about my single status but never said anything to me! It's funny guys always ask me how I'm single...well maybe if you'd ask me out! So my question is...could the reasoning be that they are scared/intimidated by me? I never really believed this to be true but I don't know why else
When i was younger, i was intimidated. As i got older, i got less and less intimidated for one reason or another. Part of the reason men won't ask out a really hot chick is because they just figure there's more of a chance they'll get shot down....which is really bad logic and i used that bad logic for too many years....as you have at least as good of a shot to get shot down by a girl who's a 6 than a girl who's a 9. Also, if you ask out the 9 and she says no, it doesnt hurt as much if you out the 6 and SHE says no. I remember shooting lower and asking out cute girls who were a little above average looking because i felt i had a better shot, but that's not how it worked.

Also, there could be a shot that you give off a vibe of "leave me alone" and men sense that....if you act more "Available" they might be more inclined to give it a shot and ask you.
