My Girlfriend Is My Dream Wife But She May Not Be A Life Partner -Please Advise
I need your advise. My name is Andy (not real name). I am a 35 years old man. I run a profitable IT business and all I wish for,is to get married to someone who can be a very good partner to me.
You see, I grew up having nothing. I struggled to be where I am today and I thank God for his blessings. While I have seen my struggle pay off in my business,I have not been so lucky in love. My longest relationship was four years. But we broke up because she was getting impatient.
She could not see the potential in me and was always demanding and complaining. Even though we loved each other,I was not happy,she could not wait for me. At the time,my business was having a slow run. Things were difficult. She felt I was not going to provide well for her,so she moved on.
Ever since,I have been very careful with who I date. Meeting girls is never a problem. They all flock around me. Its just that I am yet to find someone with the same beauty and brains that I desire.
I have always known I do not want to work for someone in my life. So I need a partner that can also be my business partner. The ladies I come across,its either they are too materialistic or gold diggers or just lazy mentally. So,I dated just for fun (s*x) until I met my current girlfriend.
We met at function a year ago. She is smart and intelligent and very beautiful. She is not into business but she is a top advertising executive in the business. We clicked fast. The chemistry is great and I wish she could be the one.
I said,wish because even though she is smart at what she does,she does not seem interested in my business. I have tried to make her realize that I would like for her to take interest but she said she has her own goals and that my goal in career is not her goal.
Like I said,my dream is to build a family business empire. My girl,whom I love so much,has said she wants to also build her empire in advertising for herself. I thought I would have to let her go since she is more focused on her goals instead of building mine with me. But to be honest,I am stuck in love with her and cannot get her out of my mind………..
Maybe I should give up the idea of the woman I marry must be my business partner? What do you think?
Another thing is, because of her industry,she to stay abreast in a lot of things like entertainment and celebrity. I see that as unserious kind of lifestyle. I mean,you need to see how she stays glued to the TV or her phone watching celebrity gossip or BBNaija (Big Brother Naija) or some stupid reality shows.
Like I said, I love her. She is sexy,and intelligent …I just wish she was more into my line of business more. But she is not business minded. She is entertainment freak. She does not like to be serious in things like business finances…she is more like into creativity and stuff.
My friends feel that she might change when we get married. Maybe later in life,she might pick up interest. That I may not find the exact kind of person I want but they may grow to like what I like in future.
Do you think that is possible? Or should I let her go and continue to find a woman that will love my business as passionately as I do?
