    Not a girl...

    But,

    You could easily lose a relationship and/or career so IMO I'd just have which ever I can if not both rather than deliberately choose one over the other

    Why is this only aimed at girls anyway?
    Female privilege. :emo:

    Personally, I'd take the career - I could never be totally happy in a relationship if I felt like I was failing myself... building myself up into a personal success would be the keystone for a happy life.

    Relationships are great but they're not an all-fulfilling key to happiness.
    Agree with this. :yep:

    That violates the conditions of the thought experiment. The point is to choose one, if you could have only one.

    A successful career. I'd doubt a "happy relationship" even exists

    Not always.

    If you are sacked by a school the reason might prevent you getting another job. You could try private tuition but it depends on reputation, which again might be too damaged to improve.
    Generally, for something to have that sort of knock on effect, it would have had to be your own fault...

    Well, if one only has a relationship and not work, hobbies and friends I would imagine that to be a very miserable life, part of what keeps things exciting is time. It depends what you mean by success I suppose. Is Trump successful? Career wise yeah. I'd still never want to be him though because he's revolting. I prefer character and art over success
    True. But I don't think he's upset with his position :lol:

    it depends on the specifics of the scenario but good point from alex

    yeh need to be happy with yourself alone or not rather than find the gal and be a humbug
    exactly :yep: I was generalising really but yeah, being happy with yourself is the most important thing.
