Thanks for your input Annie. I’ve been told that I am intimidating, although it’s hard for me to pinpoint why, other than height and always sort of knowing who I was. I’m always friendly and approachable. I met my husband James when we worked at the same place. He told me later that he told his co-worker that he was thinking of asking me out and the guy said, “Aren’t you intimidated by her?” Fortunately, his answer was “Hell no!”
