    Bit of a misunderstanding, mate. I meant 'toned-down' in comparison to women who show the traits I described. I don't want a shy bambi who never talks back, but no dominatrix either who bosses me around. Just a 'normal' girl, if I may use this un-definable and highly subjective term again.
    See, thing is that's fine in itself but I don't think the way you're describing it now is particularly attractive in anyone, male or female so I'm puzzled as why you describe them as "male" traits?

    Why do some guys get turned on by virgins the guys in my uni seem to like slutty girls from what I've seen anyway.

    Even though people are shocked I'm a virgin maybe I look or act like I'm sexually experienced. :dontknow:
    I dont neccessarily get turned on by a virgin so to speak, but in my ideal future i plan on marrying one. I wont lie and say i dont get turned on by slutty girls but its usually just in the 'i wanna bang her' way. Interms of a serious relationship though i would love to take a girls virginity.

    Not worth wasting time over. They are not interested, and I don't particularly enjoy humiliating myself in front of people.

    Glad I could help Invoice for psychological counselling is in the mail lol

    If it's a bad thing depends on your standpoint. Most 'normal' men do not like these traits in women, as they can be quite intimidating, and they prefer more 'toned-down', feminine women. Equally strong/dominant men might enjoy seeing themselves being mirrored by you, but in a relation there would be a lot of friction. Often strong women end up with wussies, who they can boss around - and usually the guys don't even mind; those relationships actually work lol
    In career terms, these traits are absolutely fantastic. People will take you more seriously, listen more closely, and you will more likely get your way.
    I'm classed as intimidating and I'd say I'm 'feminine' in as much as I'm very girly and high maintenance, and not a tomboy at all.

    However I agree with most of your post. I'm a very dominant, outgoing, assertive woman and a lot of people my own age pussy out. Older guys don't tend to though, which works well. And I agree about the career part, I think you get taken more seriously if you have a backbone.

    I do so because - save for the last 40 years or so - these traits have been typical for the male gender for some million years. This is still rooted in the conscience of our generation and will probably continue for a couple of generations, until 'true' gender equality has been achieved.
    I did not mean to describe it as attractive traits since the term used by the OP ('intimidating') has a negative connotation as well, so I saw no point in attempting to embellish and glorify these. This does not mean that people (including me) wouldn't adopt them for uni or work.

    Thank you I've always felt this way but its just startling to consider my traits as intimidating.... personally I've never given it much thought.
    Yeah, life is tough... I guess my traits are beneficial for my future. But, I can see with what your saying about the relationship being equal. I guess that is something I would want but with my age I find a less "intimidating" (although I disagree with the term) girl would be more agreeable. I take it you share the same traits as I do?
    I've been described as typical Leo ;-) That's bossy, loyal, stubborn and so forth.

    If you have someone prepared to call you on it, or if you're with someone who won't snap if they're called on it (or, often, both!) it works just fine. And as my partner and I both lived alone for several years before we moved in together.. believe me, it can be needed. I pull him up if he starts speaking to me like a kid and vice versa. A good relationship isn't being perfect, it's having someone you trust to tell you when you aren't.

    The first one said it had something to do with me being so young but mature. I guess it's the attitude... (I really dont think I am intimidating though, just saying, I consider myself rather shy!)

    I can't think of anything that intimidates me about any woman I've been with or tried to be with.

    It may be because you are shy you put a vibe out there but I wouldn't worry about it.
