Okay—so recently whenever the subject of dating, singleness, etc. has come up it never fails that someone (usually a male) tells me something similar to this phrase, "well, I think you don't date much because you might come across as intimidating"
I have a tendency to think, when something like this is said, "that is such a cop-out"
However, and this is biased, I don't think I'm intimidating at all. People who know me don't think that either. If I somehow come across, or if my resume makes me seem intimidating, once you actually talk with me you see I'm just a complete nerd.
So—since intimidation is a perception by others I am genuinely curious about how someone can become more open or come across less intimidating??
