A few weeks ago, I posted a survey to my Twitter, asking my followers what they wanted to see in this column.(It’s still live, so you can feel free to add in your two cents!

too intimidating girls-8

I tend to let things roll off my back, but I’m not afraid to speak up if something pisses me off.

I’m independent — I live alone, I support myself, and I don’t need anyone to help me change a lightbulb.

I’m not trying to sound conceited or waste your time by gloating. It’s to the point where when I get compliments, I almost regret hearing what’s being said. But here’s the great thing: dating and cuddling aren’t exclusive to high school.

A true partner will accept you, love you and be proud of you for your entire being; so why settle for someone who doesn’t live up to that standard?

In the end, while the guys in your life right now might lack the backbone to strut the town with you, there’s absolutely no reason to settle for a man of lesser value (or who holds you as anything less than the best thing ever).

The key to a great relationship is finding someone who you can be on equal ground with, a full-on partner who is as in to you as you are them.The answers I found were actually super enraging — especially on one particular Reddit post I’d stumbled across.Some answered, “If she’s better looking than me,” while others brought up words like “smarter,” “stronger,” “funnier,” and “outspoken.” Women who made more money than their male counterparts, or had a better job or seemed more successful in general, were also penalized.Basically, it seemed to me that if a woman is better than a man she’s dating in any aspect of her life, she’s automatically cast as “too intimidating.”I was immediately pissed, because a lot of the characteristics that men evidently considered intimidating were fundamental parts of me.I’ve always been incredibly driven in my career, and I consider myself moderately successful.He hosts a weekly advice series on Youtube and a music series also on You Tube..
