Online Profiles

Posted on Fri, May 21, 2010 at 11:37 PM

Nothing bothers me more than when people lie, or consciously embellish the truth about who they really are online.

People are expecting you to take the time on your profile to be truthful to yourself and the online community that finds you. The people on these forums know you are stretching the truth just as much as you know you are stretching the truth, so why not just admit to being a consumption loving, fuel burning, too busy to be active--but gosh darn REAL and HONEST person! Save yourself the embarrassment. —Non-embellisher
