    Hi.
    I became coward.
    I became intimidated.

    My courage had gone, and I couldn't ask Susan to go out with me.

    In effect, it means I changed my mind.
    To chicken out (slang) is not to do something because of fear, lack of courage or lack of conviction.

    Someone who is a "chicken" is regarded as weak, timid or faint-hearted.
