1| Disdain for Bullshit in the Kingdom of Bullshit
There is one skill all smart women possess and it is affecting their ability to get a good date. What is this magic e-date killing trait? It’s a bullshit detector! Yes, when a guy starts flaunting his stuff and doing his virtual peacock walk across your dating feed you think: not bloody likely. If he says his favorite author is Kurt Vonnegut you know that translates into: haven’t actually read a book in 15 years. If he says his favorite activity is “hiking” you can tell by the look of him that he hasn’t slept under the stars since he was a boy scout. Some men even Photoshop their profile shots like they were a Kardashian taking a “spontaneous” selfie. So why is a bullshit detector bad? A bullshit detector can be bad because online dating is located smack in the middle of the kingdom of bullshit! The entire online dating experience is predicated on a type of personal marketing posture and we shouldn’t fault every guy for trying to play it. Many good guys out there are just trying to do their best under heavy competition. There are amazing men out there just trying to play by the rules, even if the rules don’t always appeal to kick ass smart girls. This doesn’t mean that you need to put up with a ton of bullshit from men but when you are looking for a good man you must remember that bullshit and selling yourself is part of the game. SMART GIRL DATING TIP: Don’t be afraid to turn the bullshit detector off. If you are interested in a guy who might have a bit of padding in his profile then find the most genuine detail and ask him about that. This will pull him (and you) out of the language of online dating and into the territory of real conversation.
