Good advice!! If only I could follow it...
My boyfriend used to play online...it drove me nuts. But he never used his own $$. He got $50 from the company to start b/c his friend referred him, and that is all he played with. He cashed out and quit after a few months. NEVER use your own $$. If you lose that $50 referral $$ you are done, and you weren't meant to play like that.
Play with your friends for fun with low buy-ins. No online *&^%.
Cut your losses and accept responsibility. Do not blame the other player, the river, the flop, blah blah blah.
Admit to you girlfriend you were WRONG and made poor choices. Apologize and promise it will never happen again and you learned you lesson. She'll forgive you.
