Scammers who are phishing for personal information will often ask you things like your birthday because that's what they need to steal your identity.
They may do it in a playful flirty way, but that's just their way of trying to get the information without setting off your mental alarms.
You can talk about your job without telling potential matches where you actually work.
This might clutter up your main email if you use it as your dating site email.

They might take more of a chance on a super hot woman than they would normally.
