    On several occasions now, when at a club, I've had girls tell me I'm intimidating but in "good way".

    They say they're attracted to me, and we do eventually get off, but I've been wondering what that meant.

    Not that it bothers me that much anyway.

    If you get called intimidating, then it means that they probably find you intimidating.

    Over bearing perhaps.

    Um, well if I was intimidated by a man it wouldn't be a good thing...

    I have felt intimidated before but only because they were acting aggressively towards me.

    I use it when the guy has a strong character, charisma and basically the whole package so he intimidates me.

    It's not exactly a good thing to be classed as intimidating. I find really tall guys intimidating for a number of reasons haha. Or if they put me on the spot asking questions or undermine my judgement. But I guess if they have said its a good thing and got off with you there's nothing to worry yourself about!

    I'm a girl and I have been called intimidating on a number of occasions.. I guess it's the whole "I don't really care" attitude which makes you look confident(in my case much much more confident than I actually am).

    As you can see from the different answers in this thread, apparently everyone understands intimidating differently. Lol. Personally, I use it as a compliment, yes.
