    What is it about guys that you find intimidating? Whether it be at work, school, a club, what is it?

    Of course, there is always the "he might be straight" intimidation, but other than that.

    I ask this because I have been told by many gay men and their friends that I am intimidating. At 5'7/5'8 and 130 pounds I find it hard to believe. BUT maybe I can figure it out with your help <3

    Intimidation like most things, is all about confidence, If you act like you're better than everyone else and everyone better back the fuck up then people will. sometimes its all about how you carry yourself.

    Oh my. I very much hope I don't give off an "everybody better back the fuck off" vibe. That would be counterproductive.

    For me, it's physical. If I'm standing next to a guy that is in better physical shape than me and he knows it and is oozing confidence I'm going to be awkward and fidget and just be a complete boob. Not because I'm drooling over him and not used to standing by 'hot' people, but because I'd feel like shit with my lowish self esteem. Like I don't try as hard as I should to be the best I can be. Though deep down I know I'm not some fat dog that needs to be in a cave.


    as for you, you'd intimidate me if I saw you in person. Mostly because of how you look. The reputation I've seen for shorter thin [twinky] guys is that you're all vapid self centered assholes. Usually they're very slutty and into drugs. Not saying you are personally, but this is my experience.
