Entertaining for sure... Safe bet that all the things women consultants say they they don't like about male consultants are probably the same things that their non-consultants male dates say about female consultants (overly cocky, overly confident, etc)

like

OP- being intentional means letting us females know where you stand so we aren't left guessing with these questions.. What is this relationship? What are your intentions? It's asking us out on a date and calling it a date instead of "hanging out". Letting us know if you are interested after the date goes well, "I had an awesome time and want to do this again. I will call you later this week" and actually following through. It's not playing games cause nobody has time for that.

Calling your own personality just "decent"

#1 Never knowing how to switch out of consultant mode. #2 Also being too confident it comes off as conceited. You're not on client site, you don't need to have an answer/point/be right for everything. See #1.

Being in consulting doesn't mean you are smarter than anyone else. Stop bragging. Also, stop associate everything possible to consulting or your great company that you are/maybe very proud of.

I’ve been a vegetarian my entire life. Like since the day I was born, and my entire family is. Parents are very environmentally and ethically conscious people. As such, I’ve never had meat. However, I’m thinking about starting as most of my intake comes from carbs or alternatives like tofu which are highly processed. I’m thinking about incorporating chicken and fish into my diet and cutting out carbs. Opinions?
