Why exactly do you believe you are intimidating to guys?
Is it something that you believe is due to your attitude, physicality or both?
You do have to figure out which one you think it is before we can fix this problem.
Let’s assume that you believe that guys are intimidated by you due to your attitude.
Perhaps you believe that you are too brazen or standoffish.
Ask yourself about what you tend to do when guys are around.
If you tend to be too brazen, you should find a middle ground.
One of the best ways to do this is to allow the guy to tell you about himself.
Actually give him the opportunity to talk and express his opinions.
Whenever you find yourself in this position where you are interacting with a guy, keep telling yourself to be patient and hear him out.
Yes, that means that you try paying attention to him and stay quiet.
You interject from time to time with follow up questions but you still let him continue expressing himself.
The more you do this, the less intimidating and brazen you will be.
As long as you keep catching yourself whenever you feel like you are about to slip and you simply let him continue, you will start learning how to become patient.
This will enable you to calm down.
The more you learn about him, the more you can follow up.
If you are following up with open-ended questions, you give him the impression that you not only respect him but you really care about what he has to say.
This is one of the best ways to be less intimidating to guys.
Just listen to them.
Oftentimes, a girl can lose herself in conversation and talk about me, me, me.
The guy sits there listening to you ramble on and he starts getting intimidated.
He starts wondering if you are only capable of caring for one person and one person only, yourself.
Now, if you are standoffish, this can be remedied by simply starting to make eye contact with guys and smiling more often.
That is it.
This is one of the easiest routes to go in order to break this sense of intimidation you feel that guys have around you.
If you were to assess yourself and how you act around guys, you may learn that you rarely make eye contact with them or smile.
Perhaps you are constantly staring at your phone and only looking up from time to time with a scowl on your face.
Some guys would certainly see this as intimidating.
If there is a guy that has noticed and wants nothing more but to talk to you but every time he looks your way, you are either frowning, keeping your head down or seemingly “too busy,” he may interpret that as intimidation.
To avoid all that, simply start practicing eye contact and smiling.
This is huge.
Try this today.
When you head out for your day, try to allow yourself to be one with your environment.
If you notice that a guy is looking at you, make eye contact with him, smile briefly and continue on your way.
If it is a guy that you actually find attractive, you can dwell for a little bit longer in order to let him know that you are interested.
You can honestly practice this with anyone.
Whether you make eye contact with grandma, a post office worker or a cat, simply smile and be happy.
The more you practice this on a day to day basis, the easier it will be to start doing this more often when you are around guys.
Now, if you feel that you are intimidating to guys due to your physicality, you can work on that too.
If you are overweight, you can begin to exercise.
You don’t have to become the most lean model in the world.
You don’t even have to lose that much weight.
Simply start working on changing your body and you will begin to change your mind.
Once you start feeling the positive effects that your daily exercise routines are having on you, you will start loving yourself more.
Guys will notice this.
They will sense this and they will want to be around someone who is so positive and glowing.
At that point, regardless of your size, you wouldn’t be intimidating at all.
