Was reading Lowry's article and wondered: how supportive is your significant other?

No wives, but here is the problem with girlfriends:

They always start out supportive and understanding. Then in months 5-7 they really figure out that this is not a phase.

Thats when the complaining starts. And the passive aggressiveness. Then they leave.

This is why I only have one night stands with strippers It very rarely interupts training!

For the record, I would entertain a long term relationship with a martial artist or a cheerleader! I am wondering if Mrs. MattJ has any college friends that she could hook me up with !

Yes...I seem to recall that you are looking for a 10th Dan...who would 'bring you to the next level'?

Seriously, my 'on the ground' experience with others is that support is generally very low. The 'high marks' in this poll simply reflect the population here...which is why this forum is such a happy place to be!

you need to keep in mind the poll is a snapshot statistic. just as budoc mentioned, people that said they have a 'working understanding' might be voting differently in 6 months....but we'll never see that vote because it's the MA forum time that gets comprimized first.

I agree...a poll is not necessarily 'truth' and people change.

In general, I would say that 'success' in any life long pursuit depends on periods of stability. Economic, social, mental, etc.

To be excellent at any endevor comes at a cost. It can be paid by ourselves but also by the people we are in relationship with. Some people are willing to pay the price. As for myself I am committed to loving well. That leaves me plenty of time to train an aspire to reach an impressive level, slightly above mediocrity in the arts.

Has anyone tried to persuade their significant other to take up the arts? When I was younger I would try but learned that I can't force it upon someone that doesn't want to learn it for themselves. Even thought it would be great to train together.

Nicely put Oldman.

Last night I actually had my wife select which one. She was offended when I asked her if it was the 1st one or the 2nd one. She said the 1st for sure and I should have known that. Man, wouldn't these women make up their mind. On one hand she says I can think for myself and on the other hand she says I can't. Women!
