Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    I have seen a dating profile that I like but the guy keeps mentioning how competitive he is and how reliable he is. I have not really read those words before on a dating profile. Someone told me that being reliable should be the norm so why is he mentioning it or is it to cover up he is unreliable. The competitive and competing words I found off-putting as I thought if it did go anywhere would he be the type to play a game of tennis and do anything to make sure he wins etc.

    Reliable I dont know about. Plenty of people arent reliavle and maybe he knows that.
    Competitive to some might sound like ambitous and driven, which some people like. It could also be someone who doesnt switch off, is selfish, less thoughful and has a big ego. You dont have anything to lose by a bit of conact or a date. See if it shows through.
