If money is keeping from a committed relationship what else will it do? Avoid going to the hospital and having a life saving operation because you don't want to pay the deduct? Walk to work every day?

Interesting enough I think karma comes back on them because we out sell and out net them every year and several have folded and we took over their business clients. 

Dw and i simply ask how we would like to be treated. 


Hey now, some of us pay a premium to live somewhere where we can walk to work (and everywhere else we need to go) every day!


I actually knew some one that walked over 5 miles a day each way to work because they would not spend the money for car or bike,  come snow or rain or gloom of night they walked.  When I lived in the big city I lived 2 blocks from the train station and did walk some time depending on weather.  But you know what I mean who walk miles for no reason

I walk miles for no reason! Smiley Happy

 

I used to do customer visits around the world, and I would intentionally pick a hotel 1-2 miles from the offices just for the walking. Yes, it took me about 30 minutes each way, and yes I could have just taken a cab and expensed it, but I wanted to walk. Walking is healthy, and that's all the reason I'll ever need. I try to average 10k steps a day, and during vacations it ticks up to about 15k steps a day.

I used to walk 1.5 miles to and from work each day to save money.

 

Then my company started paying for busfair and I now ride that most days, unless its really nice out

Re: Holding Off A Commited Relationship

I guess it's all about prioritizing. Once you find the person that will take the second place in your priorities' list (with you being on the first), the question of money will not be that crucial. Also, if you find someone who really is your "soulmate", you both will have a responsible attitude towards money. You won't have to worry about that.

Everything will be fine Smiley Happy
