It is important to know if your girlfriend is appreciating and supporting your career; whether academically or professionally.
How much does she appreciate your ambition to excel and succeed in life?
Does she show interest in the routines of your occupation or profession?
Can you discuss your work with her?
Any girlfriend who does not appreciate your work that pays the bills, but only interested in your income does not love you.
Imagine having a girlfriend who cannot add any value to your means of livelihood to improve your life.
A guy recently dumped a girlfriend for not knowing about his blog that is actually his business blog and the source of his seven-figure monthly income that paid for his car and SUV and his duplex. He dumped her for a side chick who appreciated his blog and often called, pinged and shared the updates on his blog with her family, friends and others. Now he is happier with a girlfriend who knows and appreciates what he loves to do for a living.
That is what every true girlfriend should be.
And not just a "booty girlfriend" (a girlfriend whose value is only sex) .
How can you be a banker and leading a publicity campaign for your bank in the social media, and your so called girlfriend is so clueless about it?
How can she claim to know you if she does not appreciate your work, but only to enjoy the benefits?
What a sponger.
I always loved seeing how much a popular female celebrity always spent hours with her guy on how to improve his work and was by his side at his events even in the worst weather in Lagos. She stood by him and he also stood by her and today both of them are successful in their chosen passions and professions, because they appreciated each other.
You are working on a public presentation for a project on climate change that affects all specie of life on earth, but your girlfriend cannot contribute to the debate?
While you are discussing climate change on Facebook, she is posting and sharing selfies of her new makeup tricks.
She does not even know how the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg's girlfriend Priscilla Chan stuck on him even as he dropped out of Harvard, slept on a mattress on the floor and sometimes starved until Facebook became an awesome success story. And today they are happily married and Facebook is now worth more than $200 billion, more than IBM, Coke and AT&T. And it all started in 2005.
Now you see why it is good to have a girlfriend with brains and not an without even commonsense for logical thinking or ratiocination.
While you are viewing an important video on climate change, she wants to view the music video on Rihanna.
She never even bothers to ask you how your project is going. But she is quick to remind you about the money for shopping and the expensive iPhone she wants for her birthday.
Why waste your money on such a girlfriend when donating it to an orphanage or a charity for widows will be more beneficial to you than her moaning in fake orgasm to scam you?
It matters a lot for your girlfriend to have the intellectual capacity to appreciate and support you in your career and add value to your life.
Any girlfriend who does not appreciate your work and does not add value to it is not worth your time and money.
Don't waste your time and money on such a girlfriend.
