Being smug or pretentious is not attractive, and it comes across louder online than it does in real life.But I don’t want to walk through the details of them with you in our first conversation. Just list the important facts and leave it at that. But if you’ve been in communication for a few weeks and you’ve decided to let go, be a man and tell her so. For example, if your laundry list of requirements for a guy who can date you is longer than your actual profile, you probably fit the bill of what I’m talking about.
