re: Poker & Girlfriends VS poker
I used to get a lot of grief from my wife about it a few years back. To be honest, I never found a way of properly convincing a non-playing female that it was a worthwhile investment of time and effort.
The situation only changed when I began winning serious money. These days, she is very well aware that poker pays for our family to have extra holidays, eat in good restaurants etc., and nobody with more than one brain cell can object to that. She understands now that it`s my second job and needs the same focus, dedication, and time allocation as my day job.
So, the only real effective advice I have is - win and show her the cash. That works.
