Dating and relationships poll: Men, what exactly makes a woman intimidating to you? Women, what exactly makes a man intimidating to you?
Without knowing someone: lots of tattoos, is part of a biker gang, shows of half naked body in a douchy way, and even guys dressed in super fancy business suits(for work not a wedding or something) haha. Those are going on my swipe lefts.
Rejection is not only intimidating, but extremely painful. Most girls only think about themselves. Im happily single! I want to stay alone forever, that means no pussy bitch can tell me im not good enough for them and put me down!
Loud angry voices. Men who feel they have to raise their voices to make a point can be frightening to me. Personal opinion.
It's not so much intimidation as just a big turnoff, but arrogant, loud stupidity. Like the women at the marches wearing pussy hats. Not worth the trouble. In a dating context, it's someone who is unwilling to accept me as I am, who's agenda seems to be to remake me in her own image.
Yes agree. Arrogant and loud is a huge turnoff.
Intimidation is a reaction to volatility. Specifically, high socioemotional “walls” or high “defense mechanisms.” The concern is that an intimidating person has poor compassion/expectations and they aren’t good at playing or reciprocity.
So, intimidation is a set of characteristics like volatility, rigidity, and strong “sense” of what the rules “ought” to be (including consequences).
Oh, and RBF.
For most men, myself included, the fear of rejection was always the most intimidating thing about women. From my perspective, the men who seem to date the most women, are the men who aren’t bothered by rejection. They just keep asking till someone says yes. That said, I’m very glad to have found the love of my life, and I’m glad I wasn’t afraid to take a chance :-)
I’m sure there’s something, but I can’t think of it.
If she got a dick
I’m equating feeling intimidated to feeling unsafe... not someone I would be dating in the first place.
Nobody intimidates me. If anything I like women that intimidate people.
Yet another reason why you and @Laserbeam are a good match!
I went on a few dates with a bar owner. She was drop dead gorgeous, lots of tattoos, she owned two big dogs, owned her own house, and kicked my ass at pool. I have never been more intimidated by a date.
Thank goodness it didn't go anywhere.
Stupidity is always intimidating. It makes people dangerous and unpredictable.
Silly question on my end. Women can't intimidate men.
Ok i’ll bite. Why can’t women intimidate men?
?? Name one that could.
It’s a subjective question. “Men” don’t all have one mind. If you had said they couldn’t intimidate you, then that would have been different. Saying no woman exists that can intimidate men is like saying that no women could ever kill a man . Its stupid.
I bet your mom intimated you at some point.
Not even before I became a man...she was a sweetheart with far more patience than I deserved.
It's not subjective at all...not everyone who has a Frank 'N Beans qualifies as a man. There are criteria involved, one of which is that a man may never be intimidated by a woman.
Right. I guess we'll all abide by your definitions of masculinity.
You'd better. I can be quite intimidating when I want to be.
My mom intimidated the fuck out of me. When it came to correction, I'd choose my dad any day, and he was no picnic.
But you were a boy when it happened, not a man.

If he gets touchy
Nothing really dating wise, I just know if we vibe or not
If it were real, a "vagina dentata" would scare me dating wise 😰
Luckily, I probably wouldn’t have a partner with vagina dentata lol
If women dance in the streets moving with the speed of a kung fu fighter, arms and stiletto heels whirling around, I give them a wide berth...
Tall, muscular, bossy, rude
Maybe if she’s with a group
Maybe if she’s pointing a gun at me...
Literally happened to hubs with his ex wife. He said there’s something about staring down the bbl of a loaded .38 that just kills any feelings you had. It only lasted 3 months. She was a stone cold alcoholic. Her rage was fueled by the fact that he dumped her booze down the drain.
