Don Diebel sent out an internet mailing about the Deadly Sins of Dating (Sept 2, 2000). The first deadly sin was
SIN #1 - Bragging about yourself and your accomplishments. There's no faster way of driving single women away from you than by constantly talking about yourself and your own great accomplishments.
On the other hand it can't hurt to make her aware of one's accomplishments in a non-bragging way. Instead of saying "I went to Harvard" one could say "Back in my days at Harvard our fraternity used to tutor inner city kids".
