    The only reason you would say that you are unpretentious is if you are pretentious. It's like telling someone your masculine or butch. If you have to tell someone then you probably are not.

    I think it's possible for a person who says they are unpretentious to actually be unpretentious, a fact that may be due to their studious unpretentious upbringing where they were undoubtedly reminded daily to not be pretentious. However, I'd look into what traits they're neglecting to mention since they wasted the space to mention they weren't pretentious.

    Is it pretentious to admit in your profile, grudgingly, that you are good-looking? That one bugs me more.

    Perhaps it is.... but you can't say that you are humble and actually be it, I think.

    My head hurts... If I tell someone they're unpretentious, I mean it, period. If the other person wants to think that's pretentious on my part, fine. At that point I really don't want to go into it.

    Project much?


    Webster says: making usually unjustified or excessive claims.

    I don't like raw chicken. Excessive? I try not to be an asshole. Unjustified?

    To me the question is why someone would say 'I am not pretentious.'. Has he been accused of being pretentious? And now aware of this fault he is trying to change, and it being heavy on his mind he makes his effort to break free of the association verbal... 'know my effort to unbecome.'

    Most assholes don't know they're assholes, and that is their only hope; that one day they may know they are an asshole and have the opportunity to unbecome.

    I say unbecome because you don't have to be something, just need need not be an asshole.


    danielryan saidis that even a word?


    un- is a prefix... you slap it on other words, sometimes it works, sometimes undoes.

    I think guys need to understand what pretentious means before they include that word in their profile.
