Are strong women intimidating to men
And because women ‘don't need' men, they can afford to search endlessly for a man that may or may not exist.If smart women do, in fact, intimidate men, it's safe to say it's not women's fault, but the fault of time.It should come as no surprise that many of us don't feel we need men, thanks to better career opportunities than ever before, good friends and great vibrators.Still, this relatively new, not-needing-a-man reality has proven to be bittersweet: It has propelled the women's movement forward, but has taken women backward when it comes to romantic relationships. According to the book Strong, aggressive, ambitious people intimidate weak, passive, lackadaisical people regardless of sex.
They remind these people of the existential crisis that cause their current state of being.
Men inherit milllennia years of social and hierarchical dominance and either knowingly or unknowingly have an irrational fear of losing their territory." As a younger single man, I was intimidated by the women I was attracted to; the more sexually attracted I was, the more intimidated I felt.
They had the power to grant or deny my romantic desires and, whether they knew it or not, they wielded that power.
Strong women know what they want, how to attain it, and remember all that they had to endure to get whatever they have. Strong women have tenacious personalities that can be extremely intimidating for some men. They love wholeheartedly and also can continue exploring the world, with a man or not.
It takes a self-confident man to allow this type of personality to take charge.
Especially if they are very successful in other ways." Recent research supports these conclusions.
