    how many of you traders (that do earn a living) have [had] relationship / girlfriend issues? i just recently broke up with mine. i read about traders divorcing frequently.

    actually kinda scared of that.

    any comments...?
  2. Comment - find a wife who works as much as a trader.
    Or give her couple of kids to take care of....
    This is such business, find compatible soul.
  3. It's funny, but it kina makes sense.......psychopaths are emotionally devoid of feeling, especially when they commit crimes of violence, good traders seem to share the emotionally detached state as well
