Ok guys , I don’t know if you are experiencing the same thing I do.

This month , I’ve been really really enthusiatic about my work. Got featured of the week , my sales are going pretty good , comments are nice from everybody etc etc.

The thing is that make me feels really good and I talk about that like , all the time. I’m sure I’m gonna calm down a bit in a few months but right now , I’m kind of floating on a cloud :)

So , my girlfriend can’t hear me anymore !!! And the funnyest thing is that I can’t stop talking about that lol ! And conversation usually end up sounding like :

Me: Omg baby ! Look at this , 15 sales in one day ! Damn ! Look at this , look at my stats , look at my graph !! Baby ! I’ve done more in 2 weeks than in the whole previous month !! Thats awesommee !! IM GONNA BE RICHHHHH !!!

Her : Ok , I understand that you are happy .. its pretty cool .. but YOU SHOW ME THE SAME GRAPH EVERY DAY !! I CANT HEAR ANYMORE !!!! AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THAT SITE ALL DAY LONG \\??!!

Me: IM WORKING !!!!! YOU WILL BE REALLY INTERESTED WHEN ILL BE RICH !!!!

HAha .. Am I the only one in that kind of situation ?

:)

Oh BTW , here’s a quick tip.

I have a theme that is being coded in WP by my partner.

I was CRAZY about the fact that I can add some pages and that the link is automatically added in the menu and I wanted to share with my GF naturally…..

So I created a new page called Amelie , and dropdown was , is , really , beautifull….

That work really good , she was interested in my stuff like never !!!

So , quick tips of the day , if you want to show your stuff to your GF , use tactics guys :)

Maybe I should show her this thread so she knows shes not alone…

Or… Maybe we should start a thread for girlfriends here so they get more interested and maybe share some tips:D

lol, I constantly get told off for working too hard and something that i’m all “omg this is amazing I got Flash working backwards through a proxy server whilst streaming 10 layers of video all at once” and she notices that there is a scratch on the table :P

You gotta make it more personalised, write a song and make a nice equaliser and show her that or put a picture of you both in a snow globe and make it snow…

I constantly get it in the neck for working too hard but as long as you make up for it I think its ok :)
