I’ve always heard from powerful women that men are intimidated by them. But I’ve been hearing this complaint more than ever before.
I saw two women in the supermarket. One was complaining to the other about men. I was wearing my “Men are Weird” t-shirt and the woman (we’ll call her Abigail) pointed out that she didn’t understand them at all. I mentioned the work that I did and Abigail started to share her story with me. It was a story I had heard so many times before.
Abigail complained that men just didn’t ask her out again after the first date, although to her things had gone very well. When I asked her why she thought that was, she told me her thoughts were that the men were intimidated by her. She had a successful career and liked to take care of things herself. She didn’t know why the dates didn’t go better than they did.
I mentioned to Abigail what I know to be true about men – strength in a woman is very attractive. If you’re strong, secure and know how to get things done, you’ll have no problem attracting men.
But there are a few things that turn men off, such as…..
As a fellow strong woman, I understand the tendency to do all of these things, but believe me – they will push men away instead of pulling men to you.
