    Maybe you give off an arrogant vibe ? Are you really popular / really tall?

    I guess 'intimidating' can be meant as in menacing but also more like unapproachable.

    1. They are feminists.
    2. You are intimidating them.

    One of these two.

    Just ask them exactly how are you intimidating because they can't just say that and not give an example. Go back to all the girls who said it to get a proper explanation or it will drive you mad thinking about it

    It's not that bad haha, one of my friends has it real bad, I keep thinking she's angry all the time. I dunno why people think I have a friendly face (Even though I am friendly haha :P), I think it has something to do with the eyes. Also I know a lot of my asian friends have the same thing maybe it's because of that?

    Awww well u should know her well enough to know the subtle changes in her face when she really is angry lol and haha u sure sound very friendly. I guess some people just have smiley looking faces or something. And lmao my mum says that all of us asian girls and guys look so mardy when we arent talking or laughing so yehh its probably an asian thing

    It's probably your height, or maybe you're sooo attractive that it makes girls nervous to approach you therefore intimidating
