Save yourself all of that grief and get ready for your next adventure.
How many women are guilty of thinking they could change something about their partners?
And how many then learned the hard way that no one can change another person?
Then you stopped living with roommates, had to pay the rent — and maybe you realized then and there that finding a partner with a big, fat paycheck might be the answer after all.

In your 20s, the idealist in you believed that money doesn't matter.
