    Thanks for sharing, Michelle. I am not surprise that your friend were nitpicking on his ex-gf. In my eyes, he didn't know what he wanted.

    There ain't such thing such as a perfect partner. You guys have to give and take. My gf is supportive on my hobby. I will shoot anytime I want but I will spend one of the day with her in the weekend and cook what she loves to eat. During weekday, I will wait for her to knock off from her work so we can have dinner together. The rest of the time when I am free, I'd be either shooting. If cannot meet on weekends, she will understand as I usually would give her explaination.

    Good luck, guys.

    it all boils down to communications. Communicate well and you get the best of both worlds

    yes, they do mix. very well in fact.

    just ask me and Fred! we have loads of fun while going out to shoot and there's always something new to discover each time!

    although there is quite abit of competition between us aka who gets the better picture/composition/opportunity but everything's cool...

    girlfriends and hobbies must match. If they dont, how are you going to live your life?
    Spend quality time, communication and alittle give and take is all you need.

    I think I'm more lucky then...my Gf does not know the technical aspect of photography, but is happy snapping away and juz concentrate on composition. We both have a camera bag each when we go to scenic places, and we always fight over the better and more appropriate lenses for the scene....She even prefer my EOS100 than her EOS 66, saying that it fits her hand better as it has a grip extension. Now we have gone into digital, she uses a 5MP compact, I uses a 5MP prosumer cam. When I eventually get a DSLR, I think we'll have fun fighting over it again....

    I would give up photography if I had to choose between my future wife(now GF) and the former. She is too important to me. Yes, she is my life. But she never asked me to make a choice, ever.

    But then she's never unreasonable. Never question my hobbies, never stops me from ogling, spending on gears, burning films etc.

    A partner who gives you space is very hard to come by nowadays. You'll suffer if she/he controls what you do daily, especially something you are passionate about.

    I'd leave someone who tries to control me in 2 minutes.

    when do u know if u really love a woman?

    when u can give up photography for her...

    come to think of it, there may be some good examples from buy/sell sub-forum.

    You mean those pouting of lips, refusal to talk and when you ask you say nothing, and expect the guys to carry on guessing until you get pissed cause we can't get it right or when we stop asking just because woman say nothing? Hey, we haven't got all day. You want, just tell lah, play mind games? No time man. I'd rather be shooting.

    Like I said, don't expect us guys to know what you are feeling, how would we KNOW?

    And some guys here mentioned that they can never understand women. Well guess what? I can never understand men also. Let me quote you a real life example.
    Actually, we don't, we prefer to be alone and think, rather than whine get attention, then refuse the attention then keep harping on the fact we never pay attention to them and don't understand them. But hey, if we understand them, it'd gonna be so GAY.

    Anyway, like the starter of this thread, he had a similiar problem with his girlfriend and his shutter hobby. Because of our school committments, I believe he neglected his girlfriend a lot. So I think in a fit of anger, his girlfriend said something like "It's either your camera or me" that kind of thing (really bad move). Although he broke up with his girlfriend, he really became despondent for a few months.

    So one day while we were having a cuppa at Starbucks, he complained to me again - about having no girlfriend, and getting someone willing to accept both his hobby and him. And then I don't know what inspired me, I said why not get a girlfriend who is a photographer like you also? And he did. He got another girlfriend who likes photography as much as he does but they didn't last long? My friend initiated the breakup.

    And his reason? His new girlfriend is not feminine enough with all those camera bags hanging around her and such. Wah lau, I really feel like slapping him!
    Once again, read my first post on page three.

    espn, don't get worked up la.

    it is helpful to help a lady share with us her viewpoint. if she didn't share with us her viewpoint, it would be all our loss.

    michelle, thanks for the feedback.

    i'm getting this PINK bicycle frame, i'm sure it wouldn't make me gay (though i'd rather not comment on the issue myself). similarly, understanding a lady/girl doesn't make us gay.

    I find female shooters with cameras around necks extremely feminine and sexy.
