A guy starts to show interest in me, and the moment I reciprocate, he turns cold. It's so frustrating!
Why on earth would someone behave like that?
My friends say I come off as intimidating, when I'm actually just an introvert (read: shy).
It happens to me almost every single time. The guy starts off really confidently, and the moment I start to like him, he backs out. What am I doing so horribly wrong to scare men off?
What causes a man to hold back his feelings and not pursue a girl he likes?

I'm guessing that you played hard to get a bit to long. Guys need to be encouraged other wise they give up because they think that you don't like them. I'm guessing you took about 4-6 meetings with him before you started to like him and a few more before you were planning on flirting back?1

It's called the chase, some guys just like to chase women who give them no attention. They wonder why she doesn't like him or what's wrong with him, as soon as she shows interest he backs out cause he knows now he could in fact get her if wanted to. It's an ego thing. Or maybe they get scared cause they didn't think you like them back and they start doubting themselves so they disappear cause they don't want to get rejected.1
