If not, you can gently sway the conversation towards something a little more quotidian. Image source:i Stock This one is a little tricky, since pulling out a phone is usually considered a blaring siren of disinterest.But think of all the times that you've used your phone as a crutch in a situation where you feel a little bit out of your comfort zone--it's happened a lot, right?Men want to know they shine amongst the competition, so it's disheartening when they show up ready for validation only to find that the beautiful woman across the table is just as successful, can meet the basic needs in life herself, and is looking for something deeper and more profound than what the conventional paradigm offers. But, let's be crystal clear about something here, ladies: When a man says, "You’re intimidating", what he’s really saying is, " intimidated." And there is a BIG difference between the two. Short of arriving with hell hounds at your heels and blood lust in your eyes, there’s no way "make" a man feel intimated.
Quite the opposite, actually–someone being intimidated by you is, as they say, a “personal problem.” But if you, for one, have heard the word “intimidating” one too many times, and notice that potential crushes tend to cower a little in your wake,you might want to check out these signs that your crush is actually intimidated by you, so you know what to look out for: Your crush hangs out by your locker. Either he's totally clueless (pretty likely, he's a guy), intimidated by you (also very likely), or a mix of the two (the most likely scenario).
Perhaps you'd feel quite happy with an everyday achiever, after all, his life is fairly uncomplicated.
Now just uplevel that notion to add "every day achiever" who is ALSO genuinely "happy with where he’s at." Because those men out there.
Bonus points if Brennan has a habit of talking about how cool and great and awesome his friend is--this means that they definitely talked strategy beforehand, and your crush wanted you to know what his ~attributes~ are.

When I look at it from the man’s point of view, I understand how hard it is to put yourself out there.
