Why so hard? I'm gonna trust the process. E. How much information should we put in our profiles? Like, I feel like some people put too little. Some people put too much like, What should we put in there? I think that you just I think you wanna tell a story about who you are. I mean, this is what Amanda was saying is that you just kind of want to say, like instead of saying like I want This is all the things I like doing or what I'm looking for. Tell a story and say I You know, you'll find me on the weekends hiking Runyon Canyon. I love making my favorite pasta on the weekends and, um, ask you about that one time I was got stuck in an elevator, blah, blah, blah. You know, like, I think that you want to tell stories and get people ask a question and sort of paint a picture of your life through story. And I think that I don't know, a lot of us have a d.
