Dating Advice : Dating a Gambler


Seven come eleven, that crap table can be
exciting. But, how do you date a gambler?
This is Dr. Paul, author of “Boomer Girls”,
a boomer woman’s guide to men and dating,
and host of, “Ask Dr. Paul”. So, you’ve decided
to date a gambler. It can be exciting! It’s
on a roller coaster though. There are the
highs and the lows. And, the funny thing about
gamblers, they don’t mention too often, how
much they’ve lost. Usually they’ll tell you
how much they’ve won. But it’s a two way street,
and we all know that. The odds are with the
house, and they’re against the gambler. But,
you’ve chosen to date a gambler, how does
it go? As long as that gambler is self sustaining,
and can earn a living, fine. The moment that
gambling becomes an addiction, and that is
the only thing that they have in their lives.
There are professional gamblers who are very
good at what they do. They play poker, whatever,
and they’re very effective. That’s fine, if
they really are. If it becomes an addiction,
where they are broke because of the gambling,
then that’s over. End game. End game for you,
end game for them, end game for your relationship.
So, dating a gambler is fine, if it’s within
reason. Anybody can gamble and have a good
time. You may go to Vegas and drop a couple
“thou”, that’s fine, if you can afford it,
that’s wonderful. If you can’t, don’t go.
But if it comes to the point of having to
gamble in order to satisfy some need, then
you’re off the edge. This is Dr. Paul. May
your fantasies of today, be your realities
of tomorrow.
