It is different for everyone. One man may feel intimidated, whereas another may feel intrigued by the same woman. Typically insecure men who don't believe they deserve to keep a wonderful woman as their partner will be more prone to intimidation. It's not necessarily that he's intimidated of her directly, but more threatened by the possibility that she has better prospects. A man who has his head on fully straight, takes care of his body and belongings, has a clear and unbridled passion for life, and is clever enough to suss out a living in this crazy world... may not experience this lack of confidence that could cause another to feel intimidated.
Aw, that's flattering in a funny way. Maybe it means that if I had to pass as a man, I'd make a good one. I am, however, a woman barely older than your daughter is. Good luck to her!
Some males have issues with any female who seems "superior" to them in some way. Could be about height, intelligence, body strength, popularity, wealth, or even because she excels at a certain sport. Sometimes it's about his feeling that she is "out of his league". A guy can also feel that way if she has a strong personality, strong morality, or even a good sense of humor. <br />
I'm not sure why some guys are like that. <br />
Other than that, I suppose some guys just feel intimidated if they feel a girl could beat them up. <br />
I haven't yet figured out the male mind. lol. But I've been told that I intimidate men as well. Who knows why?? I suppose it's just best to find the guy who lets you be yourself and loves you for your strengths and weaknesses.
