Do guys get intimidated when a girl is "too pretty"?

    if by intimidation you mean doing stupid mini cooper thinking that it will impress them, then yes.

    i do get intimidated by towering girls over 6ft though.

    Rather then getting intimidated by how hot the girl is, I get intimidated by the guys around her.
    It's like "she has that many goodlooking/good body/well dressed guys around her, why would she want me"
    honestly... you're not half as special as you think you are.

    Its your feelings towards that individual that determines whether or not you feel intimidated.

    the guys i'm most comfortable talking with are either average or decent to standards,
    but none are mega good looking 'cus i can't talk straight with good looking guys...

    i thinks its like a filtering device. Looks filters who comes in and out thus the intimidating feature.

    i agree but from a girl's pov.. im not too shy to start a convo with a guy (i used to be shy around people) but when i look around a room full of pretty girls.. then why would a guy notice me. i also notice way more good looking girls than guys.. probably because its easier for girls to doll up.

    I am not intimidated when they're alone, but when they have a large crowd of friends, it's a bit overwhelming. The guy has to be breathtaking though, there are many good looking guys. I don't find that too intimidating. But if he looks like Oh Wonbin, all hell will break loose. I will trip over my own shoelaces and choke on air.

    similar to peppermintsugar, I'm not that intimidated by looks (although sometimes a reallyyyy hot guy could make me a bit nervous) but I would be by his social status or by his immediate surroundings. ie: if I knew he came from an insanely wealthy, prestigious background, or if he was some sort of celebrity in his own right, or if he was surrounded by a flock of girls waiting to flirt w/ him already..well that would intimidate me.

    I agree w/ the OP on stating that most girls flirt w/ guys they are not necessarily that interested in =p
    Interestingly enough, I actually find it easier to flirt with really good looking guys, partially because they are so good looking, they hardly seem real? haha does that make sense? Like, I wouldn't care if they weren't interested in me or not because they have so many other girls who are pining for their affections, I would not take it too personally if he didn't like me back, so I feel like I have nothing to lose. The guys I get most nervous around are the guys are decent looking because they are more real/tangible?

    I tend to feel slightly intimidated when a guy is attractive because I feel...inferior? I have esteem issues, so I don't feel as though I'm up to par with them. I also generalize that their standards are going to be exceptionally high based on how they appear. Yeah I know it's pretty bad.

    Same with me.

    Also i feel like they'd choose one of those 'popular','pretty','slutty' girls over me any second.

    Of course there is a distance...
    I know what you are doing right now. Yes, just as I expected you are reading what I have written here.

    hmmss....let say i'm kinna 'shy' (i guess) talking to guys in general, i find that i have an easier time talking to girls....let say a guy sits on my left and a girl sits on my right, i would most likely ask help from the girl xp...but when i do speak to a guy, no matter if he's really attractive or not, it wouldn't change the way i speak to them.

    however, like someone mention, status may influence my interaction with the guy (or person in general)...xp

    sometimes that happens to me too, for example, im not trying to be arrogant or anything but at dances, alot of the not so pretty girls get asked to dance alot, but the prettier ones are sort of not asked out as much. I didn't think much of it until I read this saying
    "girls are like apples and the boy is the picker, they only go for the alright ones at the bottom because they can't be bothered to reach out to the good, ripe apples on the top"

    I noticed that guys can be really friendly/open towards mediocre looking girls,
    but then towards girls that I think are prettier they're more off standish?

    Why is that?

    I know girls are "really good at flirting" with guys they totally aren't interested in.

    I used to be intimidated. But I've talked to women who are average looking and really pretty when it comes to physical looks. I think it all comes down to self-confidence, and timing.

    Rainie Yu and rache114: I'd prefer to meet the type of women you are compared to materialistic, and air head type women. I'd love to meet a woman I can have a good convo with instead of stopping every 20 seconds to explain what a word means. Or to be told I'm too smart when I'm using basic words such as lethargic, or vice. Lmao.

    Agree. In other words, they'd be more interested in materialistic, air heads, who would do anything to get attention.

    I was thinking about this earlier actually and I'll admit it's a little frustrating when I see so many guys get too shy or nervous. They just get all quiet or just watch from far away. And when I catch them looking or try and make eye contact, they avert their eyes <_<
    I only recently started approaching guys and I'll tell all you girls now, guys really appreciate it ^_^

    Do guys get intimidated when a girl is "too pretty"

    Doesn't make much difference to me really. We all have weaknesses of one sort or another, some are immediately visible others aren't, but they exist nevertheless. When I see someone who looks physically "perfect," it makes me fixate on finding their weaknesses, and I usually do.

    I would probably be the villain in any comic haha. I don't like the idea of a Superman/woman, I need to know that everyone is flawed.
