He has to come up with something more impressive than anything you have to say. You know that little voice in the back of your mind that’s constantly analyzing every moment when you start flirting with a guy? Except when they feel intimidated, the little voice is so loud they can’t maintain a conversation. She's a tech geek at heart, but loves telling it like it is when it comes to love, beauty and style.
“Intimidating” women, on the other hand, prefer to be the hero themselves because they’re aware that the only person who can actually “protect” them is themselves.
Forget all those “I’ll pay” moments, in a nutshell. The most important thing is their freedom, and they don’t want to be with people who don’t respect this.
They don't pay your bills, you live in your own place, and support yourself.
So they are around because you want (not need) them.
They like being more financially dominant, and fear any woman who challenges that status.
