7 Men Reveal What Makes Women Intimidating

Women are magical creatures. From their beauty to their brains, they're capable of harnessing their emotions to combine them with logic. They are often superwomen who need to do it all, from working a full-time job to being a full-time parent all at once. There are a lot of reasons why a woman might come off as intimidating.

Maybe being intimidating isn't a bad thing. After all, when we have the most expensive gold, wouldn't be afraid to lose it? Here are the qualities that men might be most intimidated by.

Her Ability To Form A Strong Emotional Connection

A woman that can make a man vulnerable, is a very powerful woman. It's not easy to give up our power and put it in someone else's hand so when we meet someone with who we can fall in love, it can be quite intimidating.

The Way She Shows Her Intelligence

"Smart women. This is a really underrated one I think. I think our society really pigeonholes women into a spot where intelligence isn't as valued, so when I run into a woman I know is really sharp, I'm admittedly taken aback. Most men honestly just don't know how to handle this." - EthosOfGrandure

A woman who knows how to stand her ground, who can see your true colors and read in between the lines, is a woman you cannot just play.

She Is Not Easily Phased

When a woman is so confident that, even if she likes me, my actions or comments have little to no effect on her attitude/demeanor, that's intimidating in a good way. Those are the girls I think I'm not good enough for, but try my damnedest to get." - 91Bolt / Reddit

A confident woman does not need validation and won't cave into compliments just for attention. This kind of woman is comfortable in her own skin and might be harder to impress.

The Comfort She Creates Through Conversation

"The cooler and more beautiful a woman is, the more intimidated I get usually. That being said, there is nothing that comforts me more than a girl who talks to me like she's interested in my life in some way.. .the intimidation quickly turns to fascination.

I've always kind of felt like I have to go out of my way to try to impress a lady in order for her to give me a chance, but the women who I was the most smitten with were the ones who made me feel like I didn't have to do anything to get their attention, just be myself" - Dingid_Forester / Reddit

Their Power In Number

If one woman is intimidating then it's only reasonable to assume that a group of women is even harder to approach. Women who have each other's back will be able to spot red flags even when one of their own is too smitten to see it. Nothing will get past them.

Being Emotionally Strong

"For me, intimidation happens when it seems like a girl is too emotionally strong. Maybe she's hard to get, and she's likely to reject me. Maybe her personality is such that she would reject me in a way that would really hurt. Maybe she's the kind of girl who keeps her distance from me, which is intimidating in a way that's hard to explain." deleted / Reddit

This is a woman who is not afraid to take risks and fall in love, but she is also not a woman who is afraid to walk away when the relationship no longer holds to her standards.

The Way She's Happy Independently

There is something special a woman who does not need a man to fill a void. A woman who makes herself happy by building the kind of life she wants independently can come off intimidating. It makes men feel like they're not needed, in the way, or like they would not know how to fit into the life she has already created.

However, a happy and successful woman makes for the best kind of partner because she is in the relationship for all the right reasons.

The Four Facial Traits That Make The Most Attractive People

Researchers keep on trying to unlock the million-dollar question: what makes a person the most beautiful? The media keeps on changing the women they show as most beautiful and we keep on changing our appearance and fashion in an attempt to keep up. But the question is, do we actually ever actually "feel" beautiful?"

Does it truly come down to a science, where certain traits deem a person most attractive or is beauty relative like they say? Let's find out!

The More Symmetry The Better

​Many experimental studies have shown that men and women both prefer faces that are more symmetrical. They even came up with ratios and masks that can measure the level of symmetry in a face, and by extension its beauty. Even monkeys have been noticed gazing longer at symmetrical faces.

But why? Well, science doesn't seem to have gotten that far. It could have something to do with evolution and our brains tricking themselves into thinking that a symmetrical face must be a sign of good health. Maybe we associate good genes with the more successful development of a facial structure.

Having "Babyface" Features

​The idea of the fountain of youth didn't come out of anywhere. There is a belief that people are at their most beautiful in the prime of their youth, where they've grown enough to have adult features, but haven't experienced enough to lose their innocence and be affected by the environment.

From this idea, came the "baby face", where large eyes, long lashes, a cute little nose, a small chin, plump lips, and rosy cheeks are desirable. These traits can either describe a baby or a supermodel but the idea is that they reflect feelings of warmth, trust and won't argue back.

The More Average, The More Relatable

People are actually attracted to faces that appear distinctly average. Yes, the more you look like the general population, the more attractive you can come off, which just seems ironic.

The reason some studies made this conclusion, is that teh more average a face is, the more they likely are to be a blend of genes A study, published in the journal Human Nature said that average faces might be a reflection of a more diverse set of genes, which we might subconsciously consider as stronger in fighting off illnesses.

Something About Getting Older

Maybe women seem more attractive with baby faces but forget about youth when it comes to women's attraction to men. Women might actually end up being more attracted to men who look older according to a study.

This idea is still evolving and has something to do with women finally having a place in the workforce. The more financially independent they become, the more they like older guys, according to the study. They even named this the "George Clooney Effect" which showed women that the more patient they are, the better their chances at finding a man has more status and resources due to being older.

Familiar Faces Per Genetics

Ask yourself how you feel when you meet someone who looks like someone else you love? You probably automatically take a liking to them just because they seem familiar, even if you've truly never met them before. You might even just trust them right away. In the same way, the more familiar a person might feel, the more we could be attracted to them.

Another study found that the faces we are attracted to are heavily influenced by our personal experiences in life, and probably nothing more. This theory says it's not because of genetics as even twins couldn't agree on who they found attractive. It just depends on who you meet and look at throughout your life and the experiences you associate with them.

Basically You Can't Win

Well, it turns out, even when you try to with science, you really can't define beauty. Some people are attracted to babyfaces, while some can't help but be drawn to older ones. Some people's brains attach symmetry with good health while others just want an average-looking face to continue their genes. So the message is, beauty is relative after all. I am beautiful and you are beautiful and everyone will be most attractive to someone.

Rather than focus on looks, focus on the person on the inside. You're here for a reason. This is your sign to get to know yourself better and unleash your potential.
