When should you take a professional risk for love?

Cupid’s Advice:

It is always challenging to know whether or not you should take a professional risk for love. The possibility of losing your job is a frightening thought. However, don’t you want a little danger in your life? A little risk? Don’t you want to discover if this person could be the love of your life? Even if it may risk your life, do you want to risk your chance of losing love? Cupid has some more advice:

1. Soul mates: You know that feeling when you just simply know you and your partner mesh together? It is hard to describe when you’re in it, you don’t believe you could get along with one person so much. This feeling is when it would be acceptable to take a professional risk for love. Even if it is still scary for you, and you may not want to jump out of your comfort zone, you absolutely should! When these feeling are present,  it is ridiculous to ignore them.

2. Danger: Are you looking for a little danger in your life? Is the person you are currently seeing going to cause a risk in your profession if you continue the relationship? If you want to spice a few things up in your life, than take the risk. Who knows what it will lead you to! Everyone needs a little suspense, mystery, and secrecy once in a while. Continue on the relationship with your mate will ensure all three of these.

3. Feelings are mutual: You do not, and I repeat, do not want to put a risk on your job for love if the feelings are not mutual! This is where most people fall down hill and spiral out of control. Do not be naive, ask your partner how they honestly feel and what they foresee out of the relationship. If your mate thinks you should take the risk because they care for you more than life itself, take that risk!
