I'm a pretty avid gym member, and I'm really into weight lifting. I'm continually building strength and muscle endurance. I've noticed guys getting intimidated by the fact that I work out. They've told me that strong girls are "disgusting" and "manly."
I personally disagree but since getting stronger, I've also noticed some guys losing interest in me.
Does a strong female make a man feel less masculine?

1) No. I'm a gym rat too. Some of the perks I'd see with this is that she could possibly be my lifting partner, with us swapping weight plates between sets. Also, she could be a decent spotter if I'm trying to go heavy or check progress by lifting heavier than my usual sets. And lastly, if she happened to be either on a bulking diet or a maintenance diet, then that means I could either have food cooked and ready for me too, or at least get new ideas of things to cook for myself :)
2) Unless she is built like a freight train, she isn't going to be stronger than me. Not like I'm trying to compete for the title of who's stronger, but I said that to show how the idea of a girl lifting weights isn't intimidating (at least not for me).
3) Sparring partner or even attempt to get her into MMA as well. Nuff said0
