We seem to have a problem with chat. I have a few questions for you
WHen did she start asking you to go bck to school?
How long have you been together?
What are your ages?
Have you asked her why she wants you to go?
Thank you for that additional info, I have a couple more questions
When you say things went south, can you explain more?
What kind of work do you do now?
What does she want you to go back to school for (career)?
Do you want to go back to school? Would it make you happier?
2 date relation? what does that mean? Have you cheated on her?
Thanks Pete, I do have a couple more questions, Im not clear on. (dont worry about being blunt)
You want to stay with your gf and work things out?
Did she finish school or is she considering going back?
Does she make more money that you?
Why does she think this would make you happy?
Thank you for that additional info. First off, you're not just a computer guy....there are many people that make far less than you a year. Going back to school is a personal choice and should not be a prerequisite in a relationship. Perhaps she's not in a position to understand that. If you decide to go back to school, you will want to do it because you feel a desire to want to do something different or 'more' with your life, not because someone needs you to be more so they can pride themselves more on you. If your job makes you happy, then that's all that matters. I know in a way that you want to please her and keep her, but this is just not something you want to give in on just for her sake. What's next? She wants to spend a huge amount on a wedding just to show people she can? Buy a huge house you can't afford? Move to another country? Have 12 kids? Change your religion? These are just examples, but you see where I'm going with it. You have to be happy, before you can make someone else happy, just the same as you can't make someone else happy by changing your life, as once you do, they will always want more.
So think about your job and your life and whether or not you are happy. If you are, you need to express that to her. If you're not happy, then think about what you've always wanted to do with your life and how you can make that happen.
I welcome your thoughts, let me know if you want to talk more
