I wish I have seen this post as soon as it came out. Anyway….
In a woman perspective, we value more the TIME spends on us versus money. Time is much more valuable than money because you can use your time to make money, but you can’t use money to purchase more time.
True money can buy us things, taking us to a nice restaurant , treat us to a nice vacation, etc. Those are great things (and we do like them) but the one that sticks the most are the small little things that our man do to us in a very small way but with a lot of thoughts in it such as writing small little love note, fixing stuff around the house and or cars, cook for us, or simply just chill out and having good conversation …things like that. I am not saying that our man should not spend time to their career that they choose (of course we do like them to succeed too) but if you will choose which one is the most important…it is time versus money.
With that being said, if the OP still torn between money and love, I would say follow where his heart is and I do think that he really wants to find the “right” women for him. I really hope he do while he is young. He can come back to trading again anytime he wants to. Once he decided to come back to trading again with the support of his future wife besides him…… I think he will do just fine.
Besides, what is the point of making money without any body to share it with?
