    Career vs Relationship

    Has your career ever interfered with your love life?


    What would you do...or have you done if/when given the ultimatum, "Itís me or your job"?







    Talk to me....
    Live the life you Love....Love the life you live. An iz dat!!

    it is whatever job that person is working.

    She(Sunfiyah) asked that if someone you were dating told you to pick between them or the job you have which one would you take. I said I would take the job. Now that, that is said which one would you do?

    Would you pick your boyfriend or your job?

    Not tryna justify or nuttin, but what if you had a demanding job?

    Would u ever get to be in a successful relationship?

    Or let's say u ALWAYS picking up overtime....extra hours, which would clearly take up majority of your time, and when u not working u always tired/sleeping from those looooong days/shifts u pulling therefore leaving limited time to be spent with ur boo, and ur s/o gives the ultimatum then?

    Who is selfish in that situation?

    I completely agree. If he really cared about me we would find a way to work around my schedule.

    If your SO is willing to hold u down financially if you are going to sacrifice a career you "worked" hard to get then fine. But I think thats riskier than giving up your own profession. And if you simply working overtime.. u can turn down the OT every now and then. People can make time if they want to.

    Thanks for explaining me what she asked ^ .... and I'll pick both.


    I'm really selfish and I want both..and find the best way .
    job and relationship are not the same level..
