8. She Tells It Like It Is
It’s awesome when we meet someone who is super real and honest and always gives us their opinion. Hopefully they’re not mean about it because that’s not cool, but otherwise, it can be refreshing to know that this person isn’t fake. We love having friends who tell it like it is because we know that they can always give us good advice. They’re not going to just nod and smile and tell us what we want to hear, like other (well-meaning) people in our lives.
How do guys feel about a woman who tells it like it is? Is it an attractive quality to have… or can it be intimidating?
“A straight shooter that’s extremely competent, regardless of gender, can be intimidating. Someone I have to prove my worth towards.”
This particular Reddit post tells us that it can definitely be intimidating. This guy’s statement that he’s intimidated by a woman he has to “prove his worth towards” makes sense…. but shouldn’t everyone have to prove that they are worthy of being a boyfriend or girlfriend? We can’t just commit to anyone, we have to know that they care about us and are going to treat us well. It’s really good if girls act that way.
7. She Seems Cold
We’ve heard about the whole “resting [explicit] face” thing and while at this point it’s a joke or a meme, we probably wonder if some girls really do look like that all the time… and if guys think that they do. Do guys ever think that a girl seems kind of cold? Would that be intimidating, and would they still want to date her, or would they be all, “No thanks”? Have any of us been told by guys that we couldn’t be their girlfriend because we’re cold or unemotional?
“Being just… Cold. I get that some people aren’t going to always be the life of the party. But some just have this constant searing look of disdain on their face.”
This guy posted on Reddit that he’s not into dating a girl who seems “cold” and that would seem intimidating, so yes, that’s definitely our answer. This is a good reminder that even if we think that we look normal and friendly, maybe we don’t, and maybe a guy that might otherwise want to ask us out or want to be in a relationship with us assumes that we don’t like him or that we’re always in a bad mood.
