If you must give up one between job and love(your BF/GF) for some reason, what is your choice and why?

though it's painful to make a choice between them. i'll give up love resolutely. as an individual, firstly i should have a job to feed myself. it's basic need that must be satisfied first. love is a higher and deeper need compared to survival.

haha, i'm just that kind of girl you said. maybe it's the reason why i'm still single now. after all, independent means a bit inconsistent in the love area.

But some men really appreciate the independent girls, you will find your lover one day!

for me, it would give up my job. it is easier to find a job than to find someone to share your thoughts and affection with. but if your NEED is more on the financial aspect of your life then give up love and concentrate on your job. ;)

It is said that sensible people choose work which can provide you the basic material demands and romantic people choose love. As everybody knows that love also needs bread. Thank you for your all-round response, noyarbry!

I think we can have both side by side. But if we must absolutely choose one i would choose love and i mean it.

I believe you are a good boy a man, as almost all of the men put work or enterprise to the first place, but women put love. You are an exception, best wishes for you, arjun!

It is hard to balance. I take both,but love goes first. If my spouse could make enough money to support the family, I can give up job to do everyting for love. If he couldn't ,he should understand and will not push me choose love only.

Yes, going out to work today is not only for the family, but also for ourselves, fighting!

It all depends because both the things are cmplementary in the sense u may have love because u have a job which asuures one of subsistence at the minimum no body loves only for love's sake. if one has to choose between the two job will get top priority

Hi lyn2008, I really appreciate your words of "true love maybe comes once in our lives", its true, especially when two people deeply love each other at the same time. So when it comes, we should cherish it. Thank you for sharing your different voice and good luck!

I don't think we should ever have to choose between a job and a loved one under normal circumstances. Because if he really loves me, more than anybody else, he should be the one giving me support in everything i do especially with my job. I find it too shallow losing my job over him. But should this happen, i'd give him up as my career is more important to me because it pays my bills.

Hehe, it is interesting that all of us have the similar opinion. Yes, we should get independent and have our own pursuit. Good luck, irene_27.

Well, I wont give up my job just because my BF don't have that understanding and support that I need. Coz he loves you more than anything he will understand and trust comes along with loyalty

You are a lucky girl, ayou82. I have the same idea with you before, but recently, I must think about it carefully. My BF wants me to change my job now for he thinks that I should get higher pay than I get now. Or it is difficult for us to make a living in this big city. I am in a dilema now……

Thanks for your opinion, chilenita. I agree with you, especially in the modern world. Without money, it is difficult for us to do anything. And the best way you get paid is work by yourself. But sometimes, it is really hard to make a choice.
