It all started with my father who, trying his hardest to console a weepy teenager who didn’t have a date to prom, told me that it wasn’t my fault that men didn’t want to date me. He totally meant it as a compliment — he’d raised a strong, outspoken young woman, and he knew it — so I tried to take it as such.
But as I got older, and the men I’d date started calling me intimidating as a way to weasel out of the situation we were in, I realized that the opposite sex didn’t always see intimidation as a positive thing.
The one particular area of mental strength that has the greatest impact is that of emotional strength.
But they all share (at least) one common thread: I hate them all. " Save us the stupidity and turn your interrogative sentence into a declarative one: That WAS funny. If a steak is truly great, an event truly random or funny, it would inspire you to actually devote an original thought to it. "If someone would have told me a decade ago that in 10 years I'd be doing X, I would NEVER have believed it." This assumes that it is a normal conversational convention for people to casually predict the future. The last declarative sentence they said didn't end with that. Not, "different", or "unusual." It means there is only one of them. Substitute with: "I could not care less", "I have never cared less about anything" 9. " This is said after someone takes a stand, but maybe with a bit too much conviction.My guess is that all ten of them have been said many times . They may simply need to learn some basics of guest friendliness. 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!) I got a whole slew of responses, but versions of the same question kept popping up over and over again: I myself have been called intimidating a lot throughout my life.
