Cupid’s Advice: 

How can you choose between the person you love and what you love doing? In matters of the heart nothing is ever simple. Take a step back from the situation and weigh out your options. Love involves taking risks so take into account these three points before making your decision:

1. It all comes down to your happiness: If your partner is asking you to blatantly choose between them or your career, you need to proceed with caution. If this person isn’t who you want to spend the rest of your life with, and they’re asking you to quit what you love doing, they probably aren’t the best match for you. Ambitious women are a force to be reckoned with, so don’t let any man stand in the way of you reaching your goals. But if you have asked your partner to make significant sacrifices with their career for you, it may be your turn to return the favor.

When the coin is in the air, you’ll realize what you’re wishing for most, and that should be the choice you make. Going for what you want most and things not panning out is better than wonder “What if” for the rest of your life.

There are millions of organizations out there that would be a good match for you, but there are very few people in the 7-billion that are compatible with you. If you truly love him, then there should be no decision. He is your decision.
