Dating a poker pro- From the perspective of a non-playing girlfriend
 
My girlfriend keeps a blog on her Myspace page, and in her latest entry she wrote about how she feels about dating someone (me) that makes a living playing poker.

Here's the link to the blog if you want to read it (I told her I'd post it on here),

Anyone got any good stories/advice concerning supportive (or non-supportive) girlfriends/wifes?

Are you a swede that has moved to the US? Is Mary also a swede? I see some things on the myspace page in swedish. Is that because she is swedish or because I am swedish?

I grew up in Gothenburg, but moved to the US when I was 14 in 1996. Mary's not swedish, I met her here. Not sure why you're seeing things on Myspace that are in swedish, but I'm guessing it's because you're probably looking at it from Sweden, and Myspace detects that.

Yeah not the best finishing line. Keep in mind though that she doesn't play, so pretty much like everyone else that knows a few poker phrases but don't actually play, she'll use them in corny and non-funny ways in the eyes of most 2+2'ers.

Swede,

I've seen this movie before,

1. Starts off ranting on the net to a bunch of ppl (cry for help)

2. Naturally wants someone emotionally their for her, when shes available NOT when shes asleep.

3. Tired of it all, and u get the whole "its best to be friends for now" speech.

=)

gl!

Nice read...do her a favor and start re-heating dinner yourself from time to time.

Being a career poker player in your 20's is -EV. You are giving up the best time in your life to learn a skill that will translate into guaranteed dollars in your 30's and 40's and beyond.

Your girlfriend may tolerate for awhile, but wait until (if) you get married, have kids and a mortgage. You will want that 401k and health insurance and days paid off. Having a job ain't that bad.
