Are confident women off-putting?

Just a little something I was thinking about recently. I've noticed that a lot of girls I know who are particularly, let's say, [i]out there[/i] find that guys can be pretty hostile towards them, and that people who know them well tell them they're "intimidating". To me, this is so bizarre. I love confident women the same way that I love confident men. An average-looking girl who's comfortable in her skin is more attractive to me than a girl who's better-looking but won't meet your eye or start a conversation. Am I alone on this one? (Do girls just see it differently?) Is confidence in women really so off-putting?

  • I don't like overly feminist women. It almost borders ignorance.

  • If their heat beats, then they're good. Seriously though, I find confidence in women a good thing. It means that you aren't always going to have to be protecting them (Which isn't bad).

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] shortD42 is aBK Average looking women do not have sex with me. I only accept the best.[/quote]You keep telling yourself that, sweetheart. I bet you're only still a virgin because you haven't found "the best" yet. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] TommyPiplup [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] jaythenerdkid But I'm sure that all went over your head.[/quote] [quote]That article just blabbers on about how [i]men think they know everything[/i][/quote]Obviously it didn't. Women are not typically talked down to. It happened to this women twice and it had more to do with fact that they were arrogant and rich.[/quote]Yeah, damn that uppity highly successful and respected woman! She's so arrogant for being smart and good at what she does and wishing men wouldn't talk down to her because they think they know better than her in a field where she knows better than most people. I bet she's ugly, too.

  • I like women who are moderately like me. I'm kinda shy but not extremly shy. Saying anything else would just be a lie.

  • I like when women know what they want and not always point/have me do all the thinking and talking. Though too much talking is off-putting.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Creeper I prefer my women shy and weak. They're more desperate...and not to mention more vulnerable. [/quote]This would be funnier if it wasn't for the fact that people actually think this way, and in large proportions.

  • I'm okay with confidence, but if they're just loud and annoying than yeah its off-putting.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Oly Lifter [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] JFKES I like a girl who can beat me in a debate. Or who knows who knows who Richard Swimburne is. Confident about things that really matter, not over confident though. If someone is super confident then yes, it's very off-putting.[/quote] So you require a master debater?[/quote] Yes, math debaters are the best...

  • Nothing wrong with a little confidence, in fact I welcome it, its hard always playing the field, why can't she come to me every once and a while?

  • Jay you got your ban appealed? OT: I find over confident women unattractive, especially when they are already unattractive as it is. I feel like guys can get away with being confident/cocky (different I know), but with women, its just not good at all. Another unattractive thing when it comes down to women are the ones that rip others endlessly for no reason and the ones that are very loud, -blam!-y, and those who cuss a lot. I think a well mannered woman who is mild, yet funny and good to be around is the best, and in my eyes, makes her more attractive.

  • Confident? No, not at all. There is nothing wrong with a confident woman with brains and ambitions. On the other hand, a selfish and/or stubborn woman--two traits sometimes mistaken for confidence--is 'off-putting'.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CrazzySnipe55 Except I'm not? It's just that lots of feminists are idiots who overdo the ideas of feminism, as exemplified by the fact that I just said that I agree with the ideology of feminism, and am just saying that its done poorly or wrongly.[/quote] You can't speak for a 'vast majority of feminists'.

Am I just not confident.. or maybe I suffered and still suffer from problems. [Edited on 10.06.2012 11:19 PM PDT]
