Why are we intimidated by beautiful people?
I know I am intimidated by beautiful girls and guys. And I know not everyone is intimidated by them.
But why are we intimidated by attractive people?

They're attractive and thus their opinions seem to matter. Because they are near perfect, they can spot your flaws. However, if you don't care, like me (I don't give a damn about relationships or impressing women; I'm done with it), then I'm not intimidated. In fact, I intimidate them.

Just a guess, but maybe you want to be with the attractive guys, and those emotions take control of you? You may feel that you will make a mistake and lose your opportunity with them if you do or say the wrong thing? You want to be in their graces, and do not want to be rejected...
We're afraid they're out of our league.
They're not as common so there's more on the line. Just think of it like a game show, same reason why it's hard to go for the million dollar question as opposed to the 250 dollar one.
it basically comes down to jealousy and envy
I'm not intimidated of them as much as I avoid them. I avoid all people so it's not just beautiful people...I don't really see the point in human interaction, it's kinda useless

Because of insecurity.
Honestly, I consider myself an attractive woman. When I see someone else that is attractive or better looking than me, I just think "She is beautiful" and that is it. I don't doubt myself. Why compare your looks to anothers? Why not just say, we are both attractive. Im sure even the most good looking people question themselves sometimes.
usually I go blank...and stare in awe...of how amazing they look.
but I have only seen 2 people like that in like 10 years...so it's rare. I don't get intimidated often...its very rare I do.
Competition,jealousy and inadequacy.
Probably because average people don't want to be compared to someone they think is better looking
I think it's because people assume they are snobbish or stuck up, and automatically assume that the pretty person will be out of their league.
