This is a discussion on Your Partners Preference within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; OK. I've tried this post before and 90% of the replies (seem to) have understood it.
This is not about you. This is about you're other
My wife supports my poker playing - live home games, live casino rooms, online. She plays slots at casinos (as do I). She will not play poker online or in a casino, but will play for very small stakes with friends.
For context, I do not play a lot of poker. During Covid, it is all online - 6-10 hours a week and small stakes.
BC and AC (before and after Covid) - Live with friends is small stakes. Live poker rooms - lowest limits in the casino.
OK. I've tried this post before and 90% of the replies (seem to) have understood it.
This is not about you. This is about you're other half, partner, significant other. The person you live with!
Which does your significant other prefer you to play. If they don't play.
(It's their opinion I'm after not the player)
Do they prefer you hosting (Or going out to play) live poker or do they prefer you playing online?
Swings and roundabouts, really. But they might have expressed a preference.
When i was just starting out and didnt take the game serious or know how far you could go with it. My partner didnt want me to play at all even though i won and rarely lost. I would have loved to stay with her but poker and money to me is more important. So, my next partner i hope will just support me and push me to play live casino poker more than online. As long as they accept that im a poker player and its my first love then i think all will be well. but that being said staying single and being a poker player i say is more profitable and enjoyable, lotta times i see guys who love their wives leave a great game when they on a rush because they wife comes calling. I also see some Great women who are not players encourage and believe in their partners. ive never met a woman who didnt play poker who would do that for me.
I honestly do not understand the essence of your question.
This question was because one of my friends has a wife who doesn't mind him going out to play poker or hosting poker nights with friends, but complains bout him playing online!
And I have another friend who is not allowed out to play or host, but does not have any complaints if they play online.
So there appear to be two partners out there who prefer different approaches and I just wondered which was more common.
