Women intimidating women adventest dating
The findings, to be published in the November edition of ‘Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin’, concluded that men find the propect of dating intelligent women intimidating.
The study, carried out by researchers the University of Buffalo, California Lutheran University and University of Texas, Austin, posits that men’s attraction to certain traits in women can be directly affected by how realistic a romantic prospect their potential lover is.
It's the gap in intelligence —not gender — that causes the intimidation."Do strong career minded women intimidate guys? It probably has more to do with these women having chosen to spend their time and effort trying to accomplish other goals instead of pursuing and working on relationships." "Honestly, when it comes down to it, all men have a little bit of intimidation in them, simply because of the historical dominance of males in society.
"they just aren't telling the truth because the question intimidates them."So while there are no clear answers, it is evident that as society grows and changes the issue of how men and women interact is an ever evolving and complicated one.
Says Christopherson, "There are many men who are attracted (both sexually and socially) to strong, powerful and/or influential women.
They see these traits as contributing to the complexity of that woman's character and personality.", 2005 Current Population Survey data shows, "Successful women in their 30s have options — and [women] in their late 30s are significantly more likely to walk down the aisle than their less accomplished sisters."So there are good guys out there, now it's just a matter of finding them.
