There are guys out there who have the confidence to go up and talk to women, no matter how beautiful those ladies may be. Those guys are usually in the minority, though, as most men clam up and start sweating profusely at the very thought of approaching a beautiful woman. You always hear these incredibly beautiful women talk about how they can’t get a date, and while a lot of folks scoff at that, there probably is some truth to it. How will she ever get the opportunity to go out and have some fun if the average guy is simply too scared to go up and say hello? What is it about these women that turn guys to jelly? Let’s take a look at 7 reasons why men are scared to make the first move when they see a beautiful woman.

Fear of Rejection – When guys see that beautiful woman across the room, they want nothing more than to be able to go over and chat, but there is often a little voice stopping them. That voice starts making you think about how horrible you feel if you get rejected, at which point you start to think of reasons not to talk to her. The most common of those is the assumption that she is already seeing someone, so why bother?

Low Self-Esteem – When you suffer from low self-esteem, you don’t feel as though you are good enough to approach any woman, never mind one who is truly beautiful. If you don’t like what you see when you look in the mirror, it’s impossible to believe that anyone else will like what they see.

Ridicule – Even if a man is confident and feels as though he can easily approach the most beautiful of women, there is sometimes still the niggling feeling that she might laugh in his face. This goes way beyond simply being rejected, with shame often the lingering feeling that comes from such an encounter.

Looking Foolish In Front of Friends – In the movies, a man and a woman usually lock gazes across a crowded room. They are invariably alone in these situations, but in real life, these types of encounters often happen on a night out with friends. If it’s the guy who is out with his buddies, he may have to endure endless ribbing if his advances are denied. If it’s the beautiful woman who is with a friend, that means having to strike up a conversation in front of them, which never seems appealing.

Fear She Will Be A B**ch – Stereotypes are everywhere, and even the most beautiful of women aren’t immune. It’s tough to say where this one began, but there is a feeling that all beautiful women have personalities that are not that pleasant. That is of course ridiculous, but some guys end up fearing that her personality will not match her beauty, thereby crushing the perfect woman picture.

Intimidation – You would think that beautiful women possess some kind of mind control power when you listen to men talk about them. Guys genuinely fear that they will somehow fall under the spell of a beautiful woman and end up doing everything that is asked of them, even at the expense of their own happiness. That can make a beautiful woman seem incredibly intimidating, even though she might very well be sitting there wishing that someone would just come over and talk to her.

She Might Say Yes – As strange as it seems, one of the biggest fears that men have when  approaching a beautiful woman is that she will actually be receptive to those advances. Men who believe any of the 6 items above already have it in their head that they will be shot down in flames, so when she smiles and says “hi,” some guys simply become lost.
