Why pay someone esle to take care of her when I can leave my job to do it ?
I was tired to play wii as hobby so I decided to begin again playing poker..
Some time my girlfriend blames for me for speaking just about poker...
It is true then I takes more with her, but she is satisfied that I have find a pastime, she knows well that it is hard for me too to be always at home for her ....
Wow.. thats very nice and i know thats a tough decision .. you just proved to her that how much you love her even in ups and downs.. well goodluck to both of you and godbless..

Of course this will only solve a part of the problem... You need to prioritize what's truly important to you. Your family and GF should hopefully be ahead of Poker in which case they should be getting first priority over poker.
If all you do is poker before you know it all you will have is poker.
Talk about what your girl is into instead of talking poker with her. As suggested above maybe try getting her into poker a little bit. Watch Lucky you, Rounders, or something with her. Tell her if she watches Rounders you'll watch The Notebook
ive already made a deposit before.. 5times $ 20 but it only last for 45 days and my card is depleted.. before that ive already have $150 dollars and i thought cashing out is easy.. ive already buy their card waiting for 2weeks then when the card arrive only $50 was left.. maybe i need to learn more about cash games.. now im planning again but im jiat waiting for the right time if im ready..
as of now its the only thing i can keeps my self busy.. i cant stay in my hog farm because theres no room for to stay .. and i have a caretaker there.. after my mom the finish paying the car loan in june 2016, we will start to build a new hog farm and my target in starting is 50 heads of sow, now i have 11 heads of sow and my farm is to small to renovate again..
Thank you for the advice and soon i will know whats really important to me at this time and of course the family will come first..

And all during that time I lost plenty of money, which I did not have to deposit. And these days, looks like I would play 12 hours a day, since I don't have much other to do, but I hardly play 4 hours a day. I have a few friends around here, and we get together and play spades, drink a beer, and have some laughs. Also, I have always loved to read, so I read every day. And you know what? I can sit back for those few hours and have some fun, and I win more these days than I ever have. You are the one who has to make a change. It's not easy, but you can do it.
You remind me of my father and i really miss him.. i just remember telling him can i drive your pickup and he tells
me its also the son as what you drives in other cars and then one day he let me drive in the hospital bec. Hes not telling to us that he is sick and need a heart operation but he dicide not to bec.
