After we’d been dating for a couple weeks he confessed to me that he’d liked me for a long time but was nervous to talk to me, “because cute girls are scary” and “what if you were a bitch?” I was flattered he liked me for so long but sad that he felt he couldn’t approach me.
If it looks like you’re two steps ahead of us in that department – whether or not that’s true – we might be intimidated because we feel like we don’t have a chance. It sounds like you do have your shit together and that’s awesome.
I understand that to a certain extent, but am frustrated because I always try to smile and be friendly to people.
I really doubt anyone who knows me well would say I was a bitch or give anyone a reason to be afraid of me.
I told my best female friend about this and asked if she thought I was intimidating.
She hesitated but admitted that I could be because I dress well, always look neat and am organized and ambitious.
