I want to get into bartending this summer but my girlfriend says no way. What should I do?
St. Louis, Missouri
Congrats on trying to get into the lucrative/fun field of bartending. This is a very common problem for people trying to become bartenders. I have seen this be a problem for both men and women trying to get into the field. Here’s my advice:
If you have a good relationship with your significant other then venturing into the field of bartending should not be a problem. If you have a girlfriend or boyfriend who is telling what you can and can’t do, I say dump his or her ass. If you don’t, your problems will only get worse. My wife has no problem with me bartending because she’s knows I’m coming home to her every night and I would never do anything to hurt her. If you are both secure in your relationship, bartending should not be a problem. If she continues to say no, I say dump her ass. Once you become a bartender, you will have plenty of women to choose from as her replacement.
