Thumbs up for your great website and community.
I would like to share an experience of mine, and maybe seek confirmation for something that I've been asking myself for the last few years...
I own a company, and some of my family members are really important people.
The thing is, whenever my game has been very smooth, I haven't had to put any of those into play and never expressed any information out of those, specifically. I don't think this has anything to do about being mysterious... because you can still manage to be by not saying too much.
It feels like whenever i meet people and start pointing out those infos - especially if i go too far - the HB would get stressed out, or might think I'd better keep this guy as a friend... or even maybe one day he could become my boss (who knows?).
Anyway, the thing is when I talk about those things and demonstrate a value that is too high, my chances are 4 to 5 times less to achieve any further action than when I don't say anything about my profesionnal life and personal situation.
BTW, a quick question to you guys : I usually lie about my age and say I'm 27 when in reality i'm only 25. If the chick is 24 or 25 I feel like she's really aiming for more (obviously when they are older you can't say you're that yong). What do you think ?
Thanks for your input!
