#1 – The Cruella Deville Effect

Have you ever wondered why, despite making an effort to be out there, men aren’t approaching you? Well, one key reason could be what I like to call the “Cruella De Ville effect.” The fashion and energy scale introduced to me by my incredible fashion expert Natalie Chapron sheds light on this phenomenon.

On one end of this scale lies the intimidating, almost unapproachable aura reminiscent of Cruella De Ville. This doesn't necessarily mean dressing in high contrasts or sharp accessories but rather embodying an energy that feels ‘spiky' or intimidating to men. My husband humorously queries, “How do porcupines mate?” hinting at the perceived challenge men face when approaching someone radiating such energy.

The solution here isn't just about altering your wardrobe to present a softer, more welcoming appearance but also about adjusting the energy you project. Envisioning a softer bubble around you or opting for softer colors can initiate a shift in your nervous system.

This change isn't just superficial; it transforms the vibes you give off, making you more approachable to men. By taking this small step towards softening your presence, you can significantly increase your chances of being approached, turning what was once an intimidating façade into an inviting presence.

#2 – Your Nervous System Is Terrified To Be Seen

A profound reason why men might not be approaching you stems from a deep-seated fear within your nervous system—terrified to be seen. My work with countless women has illuminated how past traumas, including psychological, physical, and sexual abuse, instill a profound fear of visibility.

If as a child, being seen attracted negative attention or worse, your nervous system learned that invisibility equals safety. Now, even though your conscious desire is to be noticed and to find love, this internal conflict sends mixed signals. Men might not understand why, but these signals either confuse them or render you invisibly.

The path forward involves recognizing that it is safe to be seen by the right man. Imagine being seen by a man imbued with trustworthiness, quality, and sincerity. It’s about small steps, like savoring a spoonful of ice cream, allowing just a bit of attention to absorb and resonate within you. Observe as this cautious engagement begins to shift your internal state, slowly making you feel more secure in the spotlight of affection.

#3 – There Is No Opening for Him to Approach

Creating an environment conducive to approachability can be more within our control than we might think. Reflecting on my experiences and those of women I've helped, a common thread emerges, centering on the presence or absence of openings for men to approach.

For example, positioning oneself in social settings so that you're physically accessible and visibly open to interaction is crucial. An occurrence I recall vividly is witnessing a client at a social event seated in a manner that made her approach by others nearly impossible.

This lack of approachability isn't confined to physical positioning alone; it extends to body language and the energy we project. Subtle signals like having open, inviting body language versus closed-off postures (think: uncrossed arms and legs) play a significant role.

Each gesture sends a message, potentially either inviting or deterring men from striking up a conversation. The art of making oneself approachable, then, can often boil down to being mindful of these nuances, actively creating spaces and opportunities for men to feel welcome to approach.

#4 – Having a Secret Resentment Toward Men

Secret resentment towards men can be a significant barrier to forming connections, something I've had to confront in my own life. A pivotal moment was an encounter with a male coach who could sense my underlying anger and resentment towards men.

This revelation was an eye-opener, showing me how these hidden feelings were influencing my interactions and making me seem less approachable. Often, this resentment may manifest through subtle cues in our behavior or even in the way we speak about men, inadvertently sending out signals that we're not open to connection.

Recognizing this, the challenge lies in introspection, understanding the roots of this resentment, and undertaking the work needed to heal. This transformation is not just about inviting romantic interests but also about lifting a weight off our shoulders, allowing us to approach relationships with a sense of openness and curiosity rather than defensiveness or skepticism.

#5 – You Seem Preoccupied

It's striking how often we, myself included, can appear preoccupied in situations where we could potentially meet someone intriguing. I've noticed, through both personal experience and discussions with others, that being engrossed in our phones or other distractions can serve as a significant barrier to social interactions.

Whether we're at a café, on public transportation, or even walking down the street, the act of being buried in our devices sends a clear signal to others that we're not open to engaging. This realization hit me particularly hard during a period when I was actively hoping to meet someone yet found myself habitually reaching for my phone whenever I was alone in public.

It dawned on me that this behavior not only isolated me but also effectively rendered me invisible to those around me. The lesson was clear: to invite connection, we must first be visibly open to it, both in our actions and our physical presence.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, understanding these five reasons why men might not be approaching you is just the beginning of transforming your romantic life. Each point invites us to look inward, offering a mirror to our behaviors and beliefs that could be subconsciously repelling potential partners.

Moving forward, I'll work on embodying more openness, whether it's tweaking my body language, challenging my preconceptions about men, or simply making space in my life for new connections. The goal is to be seen in my full, authentic self, inviting the right man into my life with an energy that's both welcoming and real.

By taking these insights to heart, I'm optimistic about shifting my energy and finally attracting the committed, connected, and fulfilling relationship I've been longing for.
