For all their bluff and bluster, men aren’t always as confident as they may seem.
What you may need to work out is whether you come across as a poised, confidant woman, or as just plain unapproachable.
It could mean the difference between dating and intimidating.
But first, let’s dispel the number one cliché about dating intimidation: being too attractive.
Sure, if you have the face of Angelina Jolie and the body of Pamela Anderson, it’s going to take a little extra courage for a man to make his move.
But whether he’ll come your way or stay away has less to do with your body type and more to do with your body language.
To begin with, think about what your clothes say about you.
The way you dress can speak volumes, but be careful about the story your clothes are telling.
You want to feel comfortable and confident, but if you dress in a way that’s too overt and revealing, you may attract the kind of attention that you don’t want, while inadvertently scaring off the kind that you do.
It may be something as simple as the difference between being sensual and sexual, but take a long, cold look at what you’re wearing before you leave the house, and think about the partner you’d like to see yourself with.
