When you like a guy, do you ever try to look good by doing something like this?
Here's a conversation I had with a girl who has a crush on me:
"Oh yeah... I think you need 95% average to get in to that university." then she added, "Which shouldn't isn't hard."
She meant it seriously, because I've known her long enough to know when she's joking or being serious.
So girls, do you ever try to work in an achievement or something that makes you look good in a conversation? Or do you usually just let that sort of thing come naturally?
- Yes, I occasionally say things to look betterVote A
- No, I don't intentionally try to look betterVote B

Okay, here's my example of this kind of situation. I'm really good at writing; I have been since I was little. I always made excellent grades in English, I placed in several UIL writing events in elementary/middle/high school, I placed in several journalism competitions in college...and I am currently a newspaper reporter who gets lots of compliments about her articles. Since middle school, I've had friends come to me for help with writing essays; in recent years, I've kind of made it into a little side-job type of thing.
One particular occasion I remember was several years ago when I was helping my cousin write a short story for her English class. She was shocked when after only about ten minutes, without even really putting much thought into it (and being distracted by a heated texting argument with my ex-boyfriend), I had managed to dictate an entire short story for her to write down.
When she went back through the story and read it, she was like, "This is awesome! How do you do that?" And I just laughed and said, "It's not hard."
I've actually found myself saying that a lot about my writing. And every time, I am definitely not just saying it to make myself look good. I'm saying it because...well, it's just the truth. It's just something that comes naturally to me and always has.
