How true is the statement that “guys are intimidated by beautiful women”?

When you're out, are you less likely to approach an attractive female vs one that's not as attractive ? I've spoken to some of my male friends about it and a lot of them have mentioned how they wouldn't even dare to go up to a pretty girl in a social setting or out in public. How do you guys feel about this ?

It depends. If they're just attractive, then sort of. I only get really intimidated when the girl is someone who I have feelings for. I think it's because I have more to lose by being rejected by them.

That's not because they are intimidated, it's because they know it would be a waste of time. Just think of her DM's on Insta, Tinder, etc.

most guys will assume that a *very* attractive girl will have long lines of top guys begging for her affection...and believe that  they cannot compete...and the fear of getting blown off by such an attractive girl saying "ugh...no...i don't think so loser" will prevent them from even approaching.
