Women intimidating women
Some were tomboys growing up and take pride in being one of the guys.Others were late bloomers or women who have had few female role models in their lives.He may feel as though he’s going to have to put on a performance in order to keep up with her.He may be overwhelmed by the force of her personality and worry that he will be forced to be the inferior partner in the relationship.Wide smiles that reach your eyes (the “Duchenne Smile”) and open, welcoming body language can make a shy or introverted guy feel more welcome.
Women who have nerdy interests are frequently less traditionally “feminine”.Similarly, if a man is interested in a woman who’s more in line with the idea of more traditionally feminine or lady-like behavior, he isn’t going to make for a good boyfriend for an outgoing, dominant or non-traditional lady.There is no reason why you should try to force yourself to be someone you’re not in order to meet somebody else’s criteria. A study on the dynamic between male employees and their female bosses, published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin found that in a lab setting at least, male subordinates felt threatened by their female superiors. However, it’s important to note that men do, in general, seem to be intimidated by female power in the workplace.
