everyone is in a different boat but I'd say focus on your life and establishing a healthy small business after school before you decide to change your life around just for love.

Remember, you can't have a happy healthy relationship with someone and make that significant other happy untill you're happy yourself!

On the other hand, you could start doing market research in Owen sound and see what they're in dire need up there for... Then start the small business up right away...

Thanks rendered. I'll probably never have as many cars as you do but I will say that what I want to do is start up my business for sure. Working for someone else is just not for me. I'll commence with the market research this Saturday.

I agree with you on working for someone else. Naturally it's just in some peoples blood to make a fortune through their own businesses. Any ideas yet on what you'd like to establish? Or still too early to know?

You have to start somewhere... We all did. I don't look at cars the same because of the business I got myself into. I could care less about what I drive these days, it all comes down to the profit made off of every shitbox I own. They're all depreciating shit boxes in the end... It's the $$$$$ we all seem to really enjoy the most. The $, The root of all evil.

This is nothing new. I have seen many times when some chick would marry some guy for status and have a partner on a side. Some of them do it because they can control the guy so bad. Some of them get married because they fear that her age is coming up for marriage. Also you have to be very naive to think everything will get better. When you get older with her, she would find some younger guy to please her on regular basis. As you may notice, this kind of behaviour does not come at age of 40... It was in her blood ever since...

My advise would be:

I would first man up and face the facts.
Eliminate any risk by dumping her.
Move on.


Also I would not look down on Scarborough while at the same time moving up north. If you can fetch some serious cash, Scarborough has its jewls. It is just the media propaganda that make it look so bad. This is done for the reasons to cover up crime rate in Western part of Toronto. It all comes from our mayors and other big fish that have all the strings in their hands. Trust me.

You're absolutely right. If business isn't in my blood then too bad. But until I take a crack or two at it I won't know.

Yes I do have a couple of ideas but I'd like to go with the recession proof one that is bound to get consumers in th door. It does require a lot of work but that's fine, diligence never bothered me. I'll need to have a partner for the operations side of things but I can manage the marketing, finance and HR depts.

LOL I hardly doubt my gf is marrying me for status or potential. She loves animals and under privileged children. All she wants to do at the moment is start a sanctuary for abandoned animals and adopt a kid which I am sure she could do without a guy in her life. She's never tried to control me either except when it involved other girls. She's encouraged me to move up there to Owen Sound but she'll understand and adjust if I stayed here. The problem is she doesn't have a lot of options so telling her to move puts her in a much bigger bind than it does me.

Now whether things are going to continue getting better is something that's beyond my ability to comprehend. All I know is it's getting better NOW and it has over the last 3 weeks since we got back together. Hell, even she feels more confident about us than I do. Your advice is sound and I would go with it the moment I suspect inevitable disloyalty and betray of trust.

I do agree about the Scarborough bit but since I don't live there I can't really say for sure that it's as bad as they make it sound. I always get the impression that Toronto people care a lot less about the west end than they do about the east. Maybe it's just me.

We had a debate in high school and the topic was "money is the root of all evil". Our team was the opposition.

I ended up coming dead last and my trainer was pissed out of her mind for some of my explicit content. Everybody still remembers that speech after nearly 15 years. Might have also garnered some crushes from the girls.

Just thought I'd share that.

I hope everything works out for you. I was warned before and I could tell on my own. If you make a mistake when you get married , nothing will help you.

Thanks you! In that case note to self - delay marriage for as long as possible. Easier done than said.
