Ask Erik: RAW! – Girlfriend or Growing: Do I Have To Choose? Featured

Not every woman is cut out to date a hydroponics grower. Choose your mate wisely. Not every woman is cut out to date a hydroponics grower. Choose your mate wisely.

Q:

My girlfriend doesn’t like my grow operation, but business is really taking off. She doesn't like the all the time it requires to run a successful hydroponics operation. What do I do now? Do I have to choose between my girlfriend and my growing?

Jeff – Bakersfield, CA

A:

You may just have to make that tough choice depending on what kind of personality type you have hooked up with.

You will meet some types of people that just may not be compatible with your lifestyle no matter what your chosen profession.

If you really like her, and she really likes you there must be a way that you can both find some level of comfort and, most importantly, understanding on the subject. Being honest is key in any relationship, and the thing to make clear is that your growing endeavor simply cannot wait if something needs to be done. Look at it this way: you are a farmer, can she handle being the farmer’s wife?

As a hydroponics grower you can often write your own schedule, which is a pretty good quality to have in a partner. The little catch is that if something needs to be done, there are no ifs, ands or buts; it gets done promptly, even if that means you can’t go out for dinner that night with her friends as scheduled.

Make sure to show her the benefits of your chosen profession.Now, I’m not suggesting you buy her off (there are other girls for that). However, consider taking her shopping for a new pair of jeans and a nice lunch next time you crop out, so she really feels the pay-offs from all of the sacrifices you may have to make along the way.

Thank her for her patience and understanding when she gives it to you.Let her know that it doesn’t go unnoticed, and that it means a lot to you.

Sometimes growers have to face up to the reality that not everyone is going to groove on their bag. Growing can be an incredibly rewarding and fun lifestyle, and like all things, nothing comes without expense.You will meet some types of people that just may not be compatible with your lifestyle no matter what your chosen profession.

Be proud of who you are and what you do.If you are a grower in your heart, that’s not worth compromising for anybody, and if someone is pushing you, quite frankly it will never work in the long run anyways. Besides, there can be much worse consequences than simply being alone if you choose to introduce the wrong person into your growing lifestyle. Cheers, Erik Biksa
