I often find myself unintentionally maybe threatening "masculinity". I don't believe I express myself in a condescending manner, but I can hear their change in tone. Calm conversations turn into a competition.
I don't want to accept the idea that I might have to tone my personality down to be more "feminine". I want things to be natural. I am relatively happy with myself and don't want to change for others, but sometimes these things get to me.
What are your thoughts, guys? Girls, can you relate?

I have no problem with that, and I've met a few girls who were probably more intelligent than me (or at the very least, had mental abilities in areas where mine aren't nearly as strong), and a few of them were/would be attractive to me.
I have fairly high intelligence, but I'm not threatened by others who are intelligent, unless they are jerks about it. Otherwise, I just enjoy learning and being challenged.
