Exactly. My friends pretty much all know I play for good money, but they might not understand to what extent. Wheter I win 5k or lose that, it ALWAYS seems like a brag or like I'm a degen, and I'm not comfortable telling he girl I see once every other month who's waiting my table and is just a friend of a friend that I made 5x her summer in a day.
So, what I usually do is, say that I'm doing good and when they press for amounts just say I'm living alright or w/e (at that point I sometimes grin unvoluntarily, it's hard not to). But, my friend (one of the few who actually knows pretty much everything) today commented that I sometimes looked like I was bragging when I was saying that. Any better tips on avoiding amounts?
