Should I lie about my job?

StellaGreenEyes
I’ve been trying online dating apps and it has not been going well. Over the course of a normal conversation with most men, doing the “getting to know you” thing they ask about college/job and I will tell them that I have a graduate degree and work in a tech related field. And then I never hear from them again.

I had one guy flat out tell me that I’m intimidating because of my career, education and confidence. I’ve started downplaying what I do and my education because of all this and I don’t feel confident.

I don’t know what, if anything, I can do. Any advice?
