18. She Has A Full Life And She’s Super Independent
Being single doesn’t mean that we have boring lives and nothing to do. It can definitely mean the total opposite. Maybe we do enjoy hanging out at home a lot and watching TV or movies, but we have friendships that we keep up, we have families, and we have careers. We also have hobbies and interests and are cool, interesting people. We don’t happen to have a boyfriend right now, but who cares?! We can still be happy and have fun.
“My interpretation of “Intimidating” is that a guy doesn’t really see you making any room for him. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but basically, you might be coming off as too self-sufficient.”
We might wonder if having a full life and being independent intimidates guys. This might be something that is particularly on our minds if we go on date after date and don’t seem to be getting anywhere. And we know that we’re pretty awesome, so it can’t be us. Well, as this guy’s Reddit post tells us, some guys wonder if we’re too busy or have too much going on to be able to really date them. The thing is that might be true for some women who don’t even want a boyfriend, but others want to find love and would absolutely change up their schedules for the right guy.
17. She Wants To Commit
By now we might be sick and tired of hearing that guys don’t want to commit. We might not really believe this since even if we’re single, we might have guy friends with girlfriends or best friends with boyfriends or a brother who is married. Basically, we definitely know guys who are in committed relationships.
Do guys find women who want commitment intimidating? We would hate for the answer to be yes because that’s just plain depressing, but according to this guy’s Reddit post, that seems to be the case for at least him.
“When she tells me she wants a deeper commitment.”
And if he feels that way, it seems safe to assume that other guys share his feelings. Some guys just seem to be afraid of being someone’s boyfriend. Maybe they don’t want the responsibility, or they wonder if they can handle it, or they want to focus on other things. They might be thinking too far ahead and figuring that being a boyfriend means being only a short time away from being a husband and they don’t know if they’re ready for marriage. We can probably all agree that this involves way too much overthinking, but both guys and girls tend to do that when it comes to dating.
