Dating profile salary

Your hard work surely has paid off. Bragging would be concentrating on that fact in your profile or repeatedly talking about your success.

Looking at our culture we can see this happening just as we can see men ignoring the negative qualities in beautiful women.

Before we met for coffee, I checked his profile again to look for things we might talk about. Maybe I was feeling insecure because of the salary issue, so I wasn't being my usual charming self.
