“In fact, some of the things I have already removed from my profile are that I have an MBA from an East Coast University, and for my regular job I fly a big-ass jet all over the world as a Captain.”
For the life of me, I do not see why any of this would be intimidating to any male. Oh, wait. We males are ALL intimidated by women.

I am glad you got off dating sites. Over the years, they have become repositories for trolls and liars; in other words, the ‘Matt’s’ of the world— I know.

PS. For reference, I am a retired FAA inspector and manager and a long-time big airplane pilot, too.
