Career anyday.

A career isn't going to wake up and tell you it doesn't love you anymore. There's a chance that a man/woman will.

And a better career= more holidays and more dogs to adopt.

Successful career. When I have a career of my own, I feel powerful and in control. I can pick a guy with great qualities and that will eventually lead to a successful relationship. If I didn't have a career, I will attract those who are mediocre as there are limited options and if he happened to be successful then he may want me to be obedient to him, or wants me to change my ways as he knows I have nothing to fall back on, I will be relying on him for the source of income.

If you've already established yourself though it won't be as hard. I could give so many more reasons as to why I'd pick a career over a bf.

A happy relationship what even is that? marriage?

Obviously marriage is more important. jobs are overrated most of us get paid similar salaries or we work too much if "successful"

good point. relying on someones income isnt the best. but I dont spend so much anyways.

A happy relationship, but only because I personally derive more contentment and happiness from my relationships with people. If other people find more satisfaction in their work life then more power to them, but for me it's not so important

Probably relationship (as long as it was a proper loyal one etc) because it is highly unlikely that i'm going to ever get one. I'm not saying that i would get a career easily but that is more likely because have always been better at stuff like education than social things

This is a ridiculous dichotomy. You could also have both or neither.

Probably a happy relationship; you can work all the hours under the sun and have all the money in the world for holidays and nice things, but without love and someone to share it with, a life is lacking
