I'm not quite sure what to think about this

April, one of my girls, recently went out with a guy she met on one of our Saturday night bar adventures.

Nothing came of their date.

Except a bit about me.

Apparently I'm intimidating. That's what his friends thought about the curly-haired strawberry blonde. I intimidated them.

I didn't even talk to them. I don't think I even looked at them. And I'm intimidating?

I don't get it.

And I'm not sure if I should take it as a compliment or as an insult.

Are you a hottie? Really attractive? The average guy can be intimidated by that.

Are you extremely opinionated? Your views on any given topic are known with-in minutes. Guys can find that intimidating.

Are you the boss? Everyone in the group follows your lead? That can be intimidating.

But in the end - who cares? Screw that guy. If nothing is coming of the Saturday night encounter, screw that guy.

What confuses me, why would April bring it up unless she thought the same and needed a way to tell you in some subtle fashion? But she’s your girl, so she would come out and tell you that flat out if that were the case.

You’re fine. Don’t let it get to you.

I get the same thing. By not talking to them or looking at them, they think that you judged them already. I'm just shy. It sucks and is why I never get hit on by men at the bar.

I'm average in the looks department and quiet (if not entirely unspoken) when it comes to my opinions; I'd say that Lucy is the leader of our group.

April brought it up in the middle of a conversation about the different personalities of our little group. The way that she placed it in the conversation didn't lead me to believe that she was trying to imply anything.

Laurie, you might be right, it may be just 'cause I'm shy.

If there is one thing I have learned about men in bars it's this: their opinion doesn't matter. I don't mean any offense to men in bars, I just mean that they are all together in a pack mentality and I wouldn't trust their impression of you at all. Especially since you said you didn't even talk to them. I'd trust the opinion of my friend much, much more.
