We have this propensity in today's society to talk ourselves up. Stretch the truth, or at least only show our "best" side (whatever that means). It's happening a lot these days on resumes or in personal ads. Figure that might get you in the door (of a possible job or someone's attention for a possible relationship) but at some point you'll be outed. So why not be honest? Well, how many people have the courage to take a hard look at themselves, and be willing to say it outright?
