Tricks to saying no to your girlfriend when choosing work

Serious four questions please.

Context:

  • Sometimes being with my girlfriend can take over an hour and it exhausts me. And when I sleep after that I'm really exhausted. I feel I have low energy on the morning after and sometimes feel weaker at the gym.
  • She's quite demanding sometimes. Sometimes 3 hours.
  • I have a small genetic predisposition (thalassaemia minor) but was awarded honours in the military so I have the capability to operate at normality. Bottom line of this is my blood has less oxygen per ML.
  • I love being with my girlfriend.
  • I also love building my career and staying in shape. I was extremely excited when I got my financial calculator and found the excel shortcuts.
  • Sometimes my relationship seems to soak up a lot of my time.
  • I like sleeping at 10am and getting up at 5. When I go with my girlfriend (night owl) I sleep at 1 am sometimes and it screws me up a little. I don't mind but on consecutive days it adds up.
  • I'm already on 4 coffees a day.
  • I don't want to lie to her and I got told I shouldn't make it obvious I'm choosing work all the time over her. But I am really serious about my career.

1) Does anyone else have the problem of being tired the day after such that it affects your alertness and ability to gym?

2) How do you recuperate faster?

3) Any easy ways to say no (ideally without actually saying it)?

4) Any other advice?

Thanks a lot.

1) Dude talk to your Dr. There are no M.D.s on here.

2) Refer to 1)

3) If you want to do well in your career you have to put in the time. It doesn't have to be 100+ hour work weeks, but I doubt anyone becomes truly successful working less than 40 hours per week. If you want to get to the top think of your 20s as the sacrificial lamb to get there. If your gf wants to have a comfortable life later on she'll need to understand why it's important to get ahead at a young age.

Explain to your gf the situation and show her how much you care about her in a non time spending way: e.g. send gifts, text during the day etc

Foreplay, skip the sex til you have energy. And just be honest with her about (this is what my job requires to get to the next level, it sucks now but I do it so we can have a life together blah blah)

No clue on how to tell your girl you don't want to bang her. I would tip-toe around that one very, very carefully.

Guys come on Soulja Boy is the biggest no-talent ass clown in the game, everyone should know this.

his beats are better than weezy's. weezy is much better on the mic, but that's like beating the retarded kid in a spelling bee, it's not saying much. plus, soulja boy's songs just aren't meant for serious lyrics, they're fun party songs. weezy may be more "lyrical" but he's still extremely incoherent...he's no jay-z, who i don't like, but is a true "rapper" unlike weezy who shits out whatever rhyming phrase happens to pop into his head.

A true "rapper"? more like glorified sing-a-long and dance leader lol

Saying you don't like jay-z is sacrilege bro. I doubt you really gave him a chance cause I find the more jay-z i listen to the more I just accept him as the greatest rapper ever.

What?!? Jay-Z is great but don't sleep on Weezy. It's truthfully hard to compare them because their styles are so different. I was going to give Jay-Z props for "You know the type loud as a motor bike...But wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight" but I just discovered he jacked if from LL Cool J's "To Da Break Of Dawn", which was a diss about MC Hammer, Ice-T and Kool Moe Dee!

Anyways, here are some notable Lil Wayne verses/tracks:

I flushed out the feeling of, me bein the shit
'cause I was leavin skid marks on, ev'rywhere I sit
I am everywhere, I'm it like, Hide-n-Go
And I can go anywhere, innie, minnie, miney, mo
I'm in yo', neighborhood area, CD thang, tape deck
IPod, ya gurlfriend and she say I got great sex
Safe sex is great sex, better wear a latex
'cause you don't want that late text, that "I think I'm late" text
Heh-heh, so wrap it up
Bu-bu-but, he's so sweet sh-she wanna lick the rapper

and

crazy muthafucker I am one, but the crazy thing is, I began one, all white bricks, I'm straight like it's jumpin back to 36 nigga! big house, long hallways, got 10 bathrooms I can shit all day nigga

and

Swagga so bright I don't even need light, I'm with a model broad she don't even eat rice, but would you believe it she dikes and she asked me for a pitcher so I gave her 3 strikes.

and

This one is just good...

Ok here's what you're going to do. Stock up on some Cialis (it's much better than V) and invite her round, pop a pill and put some dumbbells right next to your bed. The Cialis takes care of the fucking, you can totally ignore that for the rest of the evening and your girl can bounce up and down all night until she tires.

You however are smarter than that, you ignore the sex and start doing bicep curls with the dumbbell - ideally if you have a mirror next to your bed use this to keep an eye on form as the first few times you try this out form may be sloppy.

Congratulations, you have just satisfied your girl, had a solid arm workout and are one step closer to becoming Bateman. Awesome.

p.s. - there are variations of this, why not use your girl as the weight? she can easily be used for benching, squats, military press & so on - all under the pretense that you are loving her right. Need more weight? Just get her fat, you've got Cialis so what do you care if she is attractive or not.

Hope this helps you out - just remember to have your protein shake afterwards.
