R Studio Desktop Won't Start on macOSX High Sierra

Hi, I believe I am having a similar problem to the one described here: https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000469288-R-Studio-Won-t-Open-on-macOS-Sierra

R version 3.4.4 opens without any problems, yet R Studio Desktop fails to open after trying to install it multiple times through what appears to be a timeout problem; and eventually I see the same blank error window shown in the thread I linked.

Here is my error log:

Attempting to launch R session...
12 Apr 2018 16:29:10 [rdesktop] ERROR system error 60 (Operation timed out); OCCURRED AT: rstudio::core::Error rstudio::core::waitWithTimeout(const boost::function<WaitResult ()> &, int, int, int) /Users/rstudio/rstudio/src/cpp/core/WaitUtils.cpp:63; LOGGED FROM: -[AppDelegate applicationDidFinishLaunching:] /Users/rstudio/rstudio/src/cpp/desktop-mac/AppDelegate.mm:365
Michaels-MacBook-Pro-7:~ Mike$

Can anyone help me?

Update: R Studio Desktop opens fine when i boot my laptop in Safe Mode. Anyone have a fix for this?

It's been months after you posted this question, but in case someone have the same problem, I will leave a comment.
I had the same problem, and in my case, after removing
.RData, .RHistory, .Rprofile, and .rstudio-desktop/
under home directory, I could open R Studio.
