I don't mean to sound boastful but I consider myself attractive. I get told that ALL the time. I'm a professional cheerleader for a NFL team and do lots of public appearances where I am usually hit on by men...but they usually know they have no chance and it's in good fun. 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

Cheerleaders give tours of properties, and have customers?

I would think the NFL pays their cheerleaders enough that they don't need to moonlight as realestate agents.

I'd ask you out, I have no fear and I also consider myself attractive and fun.

Most likely yes, the majority of men either have wives or SOs and are doing it in good fun. Intimidation is also a key reason.

Hahaha seriously? Dancers don't make $#*!. We do it because we are passionate about it and for the perks, not to pay the bills. All of us have day jobs lol.

Photo or "you're not attractive".

IMO: There are Men who'll think that either you're high maintenance and or have to worry about you leaving/cheating on him for other Men that will potentially flirt with you.

Unfortunately in my case, yes. Mainly because, as you stated "they usually know they have no chance". I wish I could be bolder and more assertive, but that's just not in me.

Personally, yes, though if I happen to be friends with or know the woman in a casual way it's not that intimidating.

I didn't realize this was common knowledge.


To answer your question: Some are, some aren't.

If you're interested in a guy, why don't you say something?
