...been there, done that. 

rule of thumb in limit poker:  you should never lose more than 40x the LB.  you took 160x to the table.  that was your mistake. 

just take your beating like a man. 
'why does it hurt so much when i poke it?'

well the other guy was sitting with 3000, so i didnt really have much choice... he kept calling and raising anything, and kept getting lucky river pairs so it was ridiculous

just a word of advice from a guy that knows what gambling can do...

quit when you can.  winning playing poker is like winning the lottery.  though there is skill involved, 20% is still luck. 

trust me - i used to attend GA meetings.  you never want to go that far.

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.

My advice:

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.
