    obviously dream relationship

    Unless you're running your own business, whatever job you do, you are essentially whoring yourself out to someone else.

    Some jobs are better than others, you get more respect, wear a nice suit and more money, but the fact remains, you are getting down on your knees and giving some shareholders and nice big sloppy blowjob

    I would say 'perfect' relationship. People mean more to me than materials.

    None of that will matter when you are in an old people's home though... Sound's like you are the expensive creature and projecting that onto women, or even only attracting women parallel to yourself.

    Obiviously perfect career for me, as the perfect relationship in my case is no relationship and that I have accomplished already.

    But with money you can get yourself into best possible old people's house. So it matters.

    The perfect relationship = happiness regardless of the situation.

    I'd rather be with someone I truly loved and that loved me back, and never reach my career goals - I've never really been 100% career-driven anyway...

    Yeah, but the 40-odd years in between don't matter?

    Perfect relationship, obviously.


    A career is a means to an end, a good relationship is an end in itself.


    I'm hoping to have both, though...

    Career also includes your own business

    Indeed.

    Same applies to relationship. It is highly likely that one of you will die as you get older, so you will be there alone and poor.

    Well, my perfect career involves me earning such a load of money that there is enough for that 40 years in between, obiviously. It wouldnt be perfect career otherwise.

    That's not my point. You'd rather spend that 40 years relentlessly earning money, looking forward to retirement? LIVE IN THE NOW, WOMAN

    I have a very good career and I wish I had a decent relationship... So I'm gonna pick what I don't have and I'd say perfect relationship. People > materials

    But I don't think a perfect relationship exists either
