There are many reasons why a man might not be interested yet appear to be intimidated 1) Too Masculine: Most men like feminine women, if a woman is too masculine we will back away if she shows interest.
We don’t mind having masculine women as friends but not as a sexual partner.
As a man there are few things I find intimidating: If you have found that in the past you have made this comment, then like these men you really have to take a look at how you are coming across the people you are interested in.
Perhaps the reason these men might be rejecting you is not because you intimidate them (as men are usually intimidated by physical acts of aggression) but they see something that they are not interested in.
A guy like that will most-likely become insecure and clingy in a relationship and she will then have a hard time when trying to break up with him.
She wants a guy who at least feels like her equal, but ideally, a guy who feels like he would be doing her a bit of a favor by being with her.
He’s feeling so much attraction for her that he comes across as excited to be talking to her and eager to get her approval.
