She said most men aren’t ready for what she brings to the table. That she was the type of woman men are intimidated by because she was smart, independent, not afraid to speak her mind, and doesn’t need a man to validate who she is.
I looked at her and told her you’re not so scary and you certainly don’t intimate me. You see I want a partner who can stimulate my mind, challenge me mentally, share my insatiable thirst for knowledge. A partner who I can spar with intellectually and has their own thoughts and ideas, someone who doesn’t always agree with my positions and has the ability to logically justify theirs. A partner who exudes self confidence in both who they are and what they can accomplish.
If you were to open your heart to me I told her you will find that I can be both a sounding board and a source of advice. I can offer you a shoulder to cry on and give you the space you need when you need to work out your problems on your own and I can do it without truly leaving your side. I can do things not because of some desire to show you that I am the man but because you would be my partner and I would expect that you would do the same for me.
So no, I am not intimidated by you. In fact the real question here is are you the type of woman who is ready for what I bring to the table.
