Do you think people find you intimidating?

I've been told by couple of users that they used to find me intimidating that's why they didn't really initiated a conversation with me for a long time. Which really confused me as I've always thought I come across as very approachable. So, do you think people find you intimidating?

  • So I've been told yes. I'm working on appearing more friendly and "domestic". But friends and others have commented that I have a very imposing way of conducting myself and an icy stare. Can't do anything about my eye color though. But often it's fun to be intimidating!

      You're not smiling at all in your picture. If you didn't interact with me on my question threads before, I would have found you very intimidating, lol. But now I know you're very friendly and approachable :)

      Lol!!! I like how you said it was a bad coincidence ๐Ÿ˜‚ You know what? We have one thing in common. We grin more often than we smile. I smile and grin so much that my cheeks and jaw actually hates me for making them work ovet time, lol!

      Oh, yes, that's definitely a perk of being intimidating. People listen to you. Who wouldn't want that! :)

      Lmao. True. Like if you find someone really pretty and very interesting, you want to approach her, but she's so intimidated that she leaves the place the moment you're going to approach her because she got nervous/scared and you'll be like, Whaaaaat. What did I do? O. o :p

      The struggles of intimidating people, so glad I've met a kindred spirit on the matter :P

      Exactly. It gets boosted if you don't talk often as well, when you decide to speak up, people almost become afraid XD

      Sigh, how many times hasn't that been an issue. I used to think I wasn't as handsome as I thought I was and came off as creepy when girls did this, until I was told on separate occassions that it's due to me being intimidating, and that yes, (at least according to some girls I asked) I am along the lines of an 8 or 9 on the scale. That's always fun to hear. A few photographers I had also suggested modeling. Flattered of course but no way, the modeling business is brutal.

      Thing is, I have a very distinctive, aggressive walk as well. It runs in the family, all Brunnrgaard men walk like, and I quote from a description of it: Like we're about to walk up and beat the shit out of someone. XD

  • I think sometimes people who don't know me are intimidated by my profession and my intelligence but people who know me consider me to be very approachable.

      To be honest, I used to find you intimidating. But after interacting with you a bit on threads and after looking at you respond so warmly to other people on here, I don't find you intimidating anymore. You seem really friendly, funny and approachable!

      Haha. Glad you shared it with me! :)

  • It's weird. Some people do find me intimidating, but it doesn't often seem to make sense who those people are. It's never anyone I have been upset with or anything.

    In high school, one of my girlfriend's divorced mom started dating this guy, and he was terrified of me for some reason. Never found out why.

    I had a neighbor who was a cop a couple of towns over. I'd helped him out a couple of times (pulled out a tree stump from his front yard, fixed his satellite dish cables) and we talked some at a block party. Then I ran into him at the shooting range, and he was having some trouble, so I gave him some pointers and it seemed to help him a bit. But he saw me shoot (I was a competitive shooter at the time) and apparently he told a couple of local cops to watch out for me, which got me some negative attention for a little while. Apparently, being able to shoot well must mean that you are potentially a dangerous criminal? Despite the fact that most criminals couldn't hit a barn if they were shooting from inside it?

    I even had a guy who didn't want to tell me his song request at a DJ gig, so a girl at his table came up instead. Really?

    People can be so strange sometimes...

  • Yes. When you have RFB and a quiet nature people don't know how to take it.
    Nowadays I'm more aware of my expression and try to smile more so they won't be so intimated.

    But im unsure if its working though ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      Ah, yes! That certainly make people assume stuff that is so far from the truth, lol.

      I've always found you very sweet, down to earth and friendly. So, I don't think you're intimidating at all. :)

  • I've been told I look unapproachable in real life since I always look angry unless I'm actively trying to look happy.

      Awww. :/ I don't know if I would find you unapproachable if I we ever bumped into each othee, but you come across as a very sweet, honest and funny person online. So, you're not unapproachable at all. Lol

    • 5d

      Aw, well thank you! I've just had strangers come up to me in the past and say I look miserable or sad so that's the impression I give off I guess haha.

  • Not that I know of and no one has ever told me that, in real life or online.

    I do find those with moderator mark on gag as intimidating haha! I also less likely to initiate conversation with an influencer because I assume they must have tons of pm to reply to.

  • say what? I find nothing about you intimidating.
    No, I'm the opposite, not intimidating enough. I'm very approachable and likeable in real life, especially by things that go "meow".

    I know many of my neighbors, social butterfly...

  • I have no idea what people think of me until they tell me what they think. There's no way to read someone's thoughts. There are people who are intimidated by humans in general. It seems normal for people to be intimidated by everyone they encounter in public, especially after drinking coffee.

  • I've been told I was, but as for me thinking about whether, or not people do, then no.

    I try not to get distracted on things I have control over. If I worried so much about whether found me intimidating then I would never approach, or much less help carry on a discussion with someone willing to.

  • Yes. Because of my quietness and looks. Some thinks I'm mean or stuck up, but that is far from the truth. My meanness is me being truthful and honest which can come off as being blunt. But hey, better the truth than a lie, right? And me being so-called stuck up is just me being stressed, frustrated, tired, worn out, sick, or me concentrating, intuiting, or being very quiet. 9/10x I'm in my head. I learned to just love life, but you don't have to tolerate the nonsense of other people. I don't bite, but by the time they see the real me, they find others ways to bully me. Just stay away from such people.

  • Most people find me off-putting at first yet beautiful. I wear a lot of black and when im out I always look put together. even on a bad day.
    I don't smile if ever and Im a very matter of fact type of person. I get told I act like a live doll. I make no facial expressions when people talk.
    I have extremely dry humor and I run mostly off of pure logic
    Im told I have a very intense stare that creeps people out for some reason Or insults them so they put their load guns up which I find amusing at best because I never take the bait.

    Most of my friends at first told me they thought I was a stuck up bitch till they realize I was human too lol Some even said I made them feel like they better not have a hair out of place or forget to dot an I because of my serious looks and like Im judging them so how I guess.
