It does cause a problem when I'm looking for a guy.

Some that 'causes a problem' creates a difficult situation for you. Notice the following:

When a person feels scared of or threatened by you, you can say that they feel 'intimidated.' We can feel intimidated by another person's abilities, size, looks, etc. Notice the following:

  1. He is only saying those things to intimidate you.
  2. I was always very intimidated by her, because she was so beautiful.
