I was told this by some guy once...attractive women do not get asked out much or hit on...because guys are too intimidated by their beauty? WHAT? What makes a woman attractive to you? Isn't beauty in the eye of the beholder? Or beer holder. :)

I agree and don't agree. I believe its more accurate to say that we are intimidated by beauty... as second time. Many guys that have some sort of fear of rejection or what not... is because they faced it once. There's something about rejection that's worse than a low blow below the belt that strips a man of all dignity. Other instances... people now a days don't know how to say no without making the other person feel like complete incompetent losers. I mean... the guy mustard enough courage to ask and then a girl practically spits in his face with the tone of voice or facial expressions used.
Its odd that many people refer to "break-up advise" by using the phrase... "you're too good for that loser, drop him." And in context of a situation where its a person versus a cheater or something, then sure. why not believe that? But otherwise... I don't feel any girl (or guy) is too good for someone else without offering a chance or having reasonable cause. Sure, you can reject without an excuse if you want, but don't put yourself on the pedestal of greatness while one's at it.
On the flip side, I can also agree with the statement. And when he says guys are too intimidated by their beauty... it can still mean more than skin deep. A girl can be the ugliest chick alive, but her personality may be of a saint and just perfect for a guy... and the guy can still feel intimidated because he feels that at some point in his life, he became unworthy to be with such a girl. Sometimes past actions with another girl... or even presumptions about the girl he's now interested in... that he realizes were wrong. Sometimes it is just superficial... but Hollywood and the media portrays all these good looking couples and stereotypes... so why wouldn't a guy look at a pretty girl and feel intimidated? He has to live up to society's false threshold of what beauty is, and probably questions his looks and how he lives up to those ridiculous standards.
So yes, Beauty is in the eye of the be/beer/holder, and yes/no, guys are and aren't intimidated by beauty. It depends on the situation. But hey... ladies? You could make it a hell of a lot easier for us sometimes. Just saying :)2
