I dated (and even got serious with) enough needy girls that I knew when I escaped the last one unscathed, I'd rather be alone and take home the occasional girl from a bar than be with someone that wanted to run my life. I got lucky eventually, and met/married a girl that had her own life, and much like myself, didn't want someone to come in and try to change it. It works out well both for us.

Now, with that said, I try to be considerate of her. I limit myself to racing once a week, and will only go a second time if she's got something specific to do that I can opt out of. I think as long as she feels like I'm not putting my hobbies ahead of her, and I'm thoughtful about how I spend my time doing them, then it's a good thing. I've been back in R/C for two years now, and the worst she's done is give me a sad face when I try to leave her alone on Sunday to race for a second time, and she doesn't have anything interesting to do. I find it best to abide by the sad face, and stay home. :-)

The girl in the Corally picture has a, ahem, special website that someone tracked down when the picture was first posted.

I'd just say she's a butter face....

Actually, I am just out of an 11 year relationship where my ex not only hated my racing, she treated it like I was cheating on her and it was another woman. I lost 2 local track championships because of her BS that "If I really loved her I would stay home and not go to the track". It got especially hard when I started working in the industry and I really needed to go to the track as part of my job. It was crap. Seriously, from someone who's gone thru it... If your partner doesn't understand your hobby, whether it's stamp collecting, racing toy cars, or golfing, then you need to take a serious look at things. Now, I am not saying that she needs to race with you. Hell, she doesn't even need to go to the track with you, ever. But there's nothing wrong with going out and having a good time playing with toy cars for bowling trophies. If you ask most which they'd rather have, someone how goes out and spends $200 getting hammered at a local bar or $200 racing RC, I think most would say RC. Plus, I have also gotten to the point where I am just too damn old and stubborn to want to change.
