Guys Are Intimidated

A question to the girls...Have you ever noticed how you always get hit on so much more when you look your worst? Whenever I go out in sweatpants and no makeup, I have guys hitting on me left and right. On the other hand, if I get all done up and put on a sexy dress, only about a third of the guys come up to me.

I have a theory on this one. Now most guys will try and tell you that it's because they think girls are prettier with no makeup on blah blah blah. Well that's all BULL. Who would you rather date?

Gross Julie or Sexy Julie?


I can't believe I'm even posting that photo of me. But anyway my theory is that guys find a girl much way approachable if she is not looking her best. And when the girl is looking smokin' hot, they feel too intimidated to approach her because fear of rejection. It's the most obvious theory but I know most guys will deny it.

I did a little social experiment while running my errands the other day. I got out of bed in the morning, threw on some sweats, a baseball cap, went out without makeup and the response was overwhelming.

1. As I was walking to the pharmacy, a black Mercedes drove by me. The driver stuck his head out the window and beeped at me (I absolutely hate when guys do this). I ignored him and kept walking and a guy on the other side of the road yelled "I think he likes you!" .....DUH.

2. A minute later on the same block a guy rode by me on a bicycle and yelled "Go ahead girl..gimme some!" ....Give you what mother fucker? Keep riding your tricycle the other way!

3. A few blocks later, as I was reading a text message, two guys walked by me and one said "Yo, you light as shit with that Gucci Bag. You light as shit!" The other guy goes "Can I be your future husband?" And they both stand in front of me and block my path. Like seriously what does light as shit mean? Were they saying "tight"? Do they think I'm skinny, I don't get it. And standing in my way is a sure fire way of making me totally into you!! Ugh.

4. I pass a guy sitting on a brick wall and he says "Hellllooooo gorgeous"

5. A guy inside Barefeet Shoes asks "Are you single?"

Now I know people are going to say "Well Julie, take the compliments while they are still coming because one day they will stop." Well, I honestly don't take these as compliments. It's more like guys treating me like a piece of meat. If I was a guy and wanted to pick up a girl, I would come up to her and tell her she looks stunning instead of "Gimme some girl!".

Maybe I'm just old-school. Who knows?

There's a lot of truth to this... And it overflows in other areas... Somehow you have to look great but approachable... Looking REALLY bad doesn't cut it either...

Theory stands valid. Good observation, girlfriend. That's why I like dressing up and looking business-like when I'm in ghetto neighborhood and vice versa. If you don't look like their type, they don't bother.

Of if you look out of their leagues, they don't bother neither. Well.. some attempt... but.... I just pretend I'm deaf or don't understand English!

Julie, what kind of guys were hitting on you. Ghetto Thugs? Just by the way you described it that is what it seems. And they Hit on Any girl it seems as well. If you have a Vagina they will hit on it!. lol And yes guys are intimidated by a gorgouss girl all dressed up. The only ones that arent intimidated are the players who's ego's are larger than life. And usually they are the ones who get the girls at first because they come off confident.

Jewelz said...

Dustin, you totally got it right, they were all kind of ghetto. I love how you can tell just by what they said lol.

There is a double standards for how a man is supposed to approach a woman too, which any honest guy will tell you is a really hard thing to do... you're supposed to be confident but friendly, aggresive but not TOO aggressive... guys who just yell shit out are stupid, I can't believe that shit like that ever works... if you want to get dressed to the nines and expect a normal guy to hit on you you're crazy, maybe you should approach the guys in that case, but don't get me started on that subject...

Jewelz said...

When I was single, I always approached a guy first if I liked him.

Honestly I don't find you attractive at all. You have a nice body which is only good for one thing but your face is a trainwreck. And what makes you even uglier is the fact that you think you are good looking.
