Mike J. fell in love every week. Each week, he scrolled the pages of the online dating sites. He said It was a babe-buffet.
Look but don’t touch
Mike J. spent a month looking – before he garnered the courage to sign up and jump into the dating pool. Cleverly, he checked out men’s profiles to determine what women want. He asked his sister to help him with photographs and penning his profile. It took much longer than he thought. When it came to listing his interests and hobbies, Mike J came up empty. He watched television – a lot. He went to the gym a couple of times a month. He didn’t have hobbies.
His favorite time of the year was Halloween, and his forte was his creative pumpkin carving. He was famous in high school and set up shop. Each Halloween, he consistently had 50 orders at $10.00 – $25.00 per for uniquely designed pumpkins. In college, he kept his secret talent quiet. When he started at his job, there was no way he wanted anyone to know about his deft knife handling hobby.
His younger sister urged him to brag about his artitstic ability. He bit. The lack of interest in him was sobering. He was crestfallen.
Buzzkill: Fact- very few women are going to be enamored with a man who has one, single, skill when it involves pumpkins. Get creative, think outside of the box. If you are an artistic genius – brag – promote yourself.
Conceit is bragging about yourself. Confidence means you believe you can get the job done.
