This week, the two women learned how to not intimidate men.Carroll tells The Early Show co-anchor Hannah Storm, "Every woman in America who is watching has been told, because she's independent, because she earns a little money and she doesn't need a man: you're intimidating. She’s well educated, with a rapier wit and a willingness to use it. And yet, Friday still remains the most lonely night of the week when she sees all of the happy, laughing couples making plans, having romantic dinners and enjoying the sex while she’s at home with Fringe on the DVR and a bottle of Malbec breathing in the kitchen. Well, whenever she’s interested in a guy – a guy who’s worth her time, because what’s the point of having standards if she’s not going to stick to ‘em? She’s done it all; dating sites, meeting guys at cons, the comic store, chatting up friends from class and at work.
She guarantees if women take her three points to heart, they will learn how to not intimidate or frighten men away.
If you've been called intimidating, you're probably wondering what the &*^# is up with that! Read on for a few different interpretations of this often-used label. If you're out there crushin' it professionally, it might soon become clear to the man you're seeing that you're more successful than he is. Be your genuine self and let him get to know the real you.
Is the person doing the calling trying to say you're an impressive and accomplished woman? He'll see you as a whole person and not just a scarily impressive job title. If you find yourself doing so for the sake of a man, snap out of it!
Why, yes, you now have my attention because I’m now curious about your psyche.
We’ve been talking for a while, maybe even tried the dating thing, and for whatever reason, you feel the need to inform me (as if I didn’t already know) that I’m intimidating.
