While many guys won’t admit it, yes some of them sincerely are intimidated by smart, successful, independent women. This is because they realize they can’t reach a certain level in a conversation with her: they’re not mentally equipped. Perhaps they feel they can only achieve so much success so being next to her is like the hungry who can’t reach the apple then you’ve got someone next to you with barrels full of apples and empty barrels ready for more! Some guys are successful but it’s an ego thing and their ego is too huge for them to actually be with someone who’s on their level. They need someone less successful so that person can remind them how good they’re doing. Independence can be threatening because a lot of guys like the feeling of girls depending on them, it makes them feel masculine and strong. However other times, independent women are just conceited b*tches lol They ooze cockiness, possess zero humility, and make a guy feel like he has to jump hurtles to prove he can stay in her lane which would really get annoying.1
