10. She’s Super Social
It’s funny how some people are super social and others are homebodies. We might be the life of the party no matter what and enjoy meeting new people, or maybe the opposite is true and we like having a smaller group of friends. If guys get intimidated by a lot of things, which seems to be the case, how do they feel about a social girl?
“Social butterflies who are bubbly and get along with seemingly everyone. They are simultaneously super welcoming and very intimidating to me.”
This guy’s Reddit post proves that some guys can be intimidated by women who are social. Maybe they think that they won’t be able to keep up and party all the time with her. Maybe they think that she knows too many people and they won’t want to talk to random strangers all the time. Maybe they just find it too much to deal with. This definitely makes sense. If we’re on the quiet, homebody side, would we really want to have a boyfriend who is a social butterfly? The answer is probably not. We just might be too opposite and have too many differences, and honestly, that’s fine. There’s going to be someone who is more our social speed.
9. She Seems “Better” Than Him
Not every couple can be totally equal. One person might have a higher-paying job, another might have more family money, and countless other differences. It doesn’t have to be a bad thing. If the couple is truly in love and meant to be together, it won’t even matter. They’ll take care of each other and make it work.
We know that everyone gets insecure sometimes, particularly when they are interested in dating someone, and we might wonder if guys get insecure about dating a girl who seems “better” than them.
“Very attractive. More educated than me. Substantially more intelligent than me. Substantially more successful than me.”
This guy on Reddit gets intimidated when he thinks that a girl is above him in status in terms of good looks, education, intelligence, and success in general. It sucks to hear this because we don’t want to feel like we have to dumb ourselves down or stop being accomplished in order to be attractive to guys, and we have a certain pride about how we look. It doesn’t seem super fair to hear that this can be intimidating, but maybe we have come across this before with guys and so it makes total sense to us.
