Like I said at the beginning, lots of guys freeze up when they see a girl they really like. In the end, the only thing that matters is how we can make each other feel.

She’s geeky to her Joss-Whedon-loving core, a Whovian, Vertigo-reading, 3rd edition D&D (none of that 4th ed crap thank you very much) gamer with the con stories to prove it. While it’s true that many men will use it as a polite dodge to avoid saying “I’m not attracted to you”, when it comes up over and over again, it’s a sign that maybe there’s more to it.
After all, women are encouraged to be assertive, accomplished and independent; being told that they’re “intimidating” sounds like they’re being told to take all of that back and pretend to be something less than what they are.

Our conversation was kinda boring; I doubt we’ll meet again.
The truth is, attractive girls like her really aren’t that special. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that society objectifies women for their looks.
My mom would always say: “If everyone else jumped off a bridge tomorrow, would you do that too?
” That’s how I feel about guys being intimidated by beautiful women.
