Well I am not talknig about contacting them but them contacting women as I have read several times in the fora that they are saying that some women intimidate them. I do agree with you that it is the man's natural role to do the courting and I feel very uncomfortable about contacting gentlemen.

If a mere picture bothers them than they aren't the person for you. In my opinion guys that say stuff like that are just giving excuses for being lazy or just aren't ready for a relationship and shouldn't be here.

Gee, Peter, I dunno---with that moustache, you DO kinda look like Tom....

Peter I see you as very attractive and always have. You appear to be a man who has great ability to think clearly and soberly and you have great common sense, I also see you as looking like Tom Selleck too! I am not kidding! You are adorable!

I've always been attracted to smart women. In my online searches I was often intimidated by their accomplishments- their resumes outshone mine. I found many women were looking for a man with advanced degrees to at least match theirs, a world traveller, etc. Their favorite places were Tuscany or the French wine country, that sort of thing. My problem back then- I was seeking the unreachable. Many of us men need to take a long, hard, sober look in the mirror and be more realistic about our searches. That was a painful lesson for me. Chemistry is not a one-way street. Obviously I'm not talking about the guys who look like Tom Selleck and have a law degree from Harvard, but you get the picture.

I learned it's absolutely necessary to be able to handle rejection philosophically and without bitterness- just deal with it and turn the page. It's not a personal insult.

Those days are long gone for me, but I hope this helps.

I don't think an advanced degree or international travel should intimidate a guy from contacting a woman. The reality is, many of us ladies would wither up and die if we were waiting for the man to come along before life could start. So we pursue higher education or do the things that interest us. I don't see why it's intimidating--it would be an awesome conversation starter! You're assuming that this type of woman would reject you when she probably just wants to be treated like a lady and not be forced to play the man's role. . .

I watched a documentary on single Christian women and one woman stated that the more things she accomplished in her life, the less men were interested in dating her. Now, some women can be ultra picky and only a doctor or lawyer will do. Personally, I'm looking for a man with character who would make an awesome husband and father. Full stop. That doesn't mean he has to have an advanced degree or travel abroad.
