So You Say . . .

I've had it up to here with this profile shtick. I can't stand it. The lingering whiffs of superstition from my background quakes at the mention of ayin hara, and yet I see it everywhere.

Examples of unnecessary information on males' info

"I have a big heart." 

Was it transplanted from an elephant

"I'm smart." 

Said Forrest Gump.

"I'm good-looking." 

Thanks to Photoshop. 

"I'm successful." 

Where do I begin?

The more someone tells me of their glittering qualities, the less I believe them. A diploma can attest to academic achievement, but for everything else?

Rattling off adjectives as how they like to see themselves does not mean that reality got the memo. 

If you truly are, I will be able to see it. After all:

Well what if the guy was honest and listed his flaws? Who would then click on a less than perfect guys profile when there are so many perfect ones?

Well the non-Jewish profile method is a lot less subtle. For example, all those girls who have "Juicy" on the back of their low-hanging track pants...
