Drew, my dad and I went to the Atlantic City boardwalk this summer, and I had to beg them …Ever since I was little, I've spent most of my weekends during the summer down the shore, near Atlantic City where my family has a condo. I love going there because it's quiet and relaxing. When Drew first found out that my family had a place down the shore, he was so excited to go...not for the beach, but for the casinos.
I immediately told Drew how much I hate gambling. I completely understand that it can be fun to do every now and then, but it makes me nervous to see how people can get addicted to the thrill of the win. Drew isn't a huge gambler, but he really loves playing craps and poker (he watches professional poker on TV whenever it's on). It frustrates me to see him "studying" because it just makes him want to try out whatever tricks he learns from the pros. He and I work so hard, and I don't think it's smart to risk any of our salaries on a game. Luckily, Drew has recently gone into major money lockdown because he wants to see how much we can save over the year, so I'm not too worried about his gambling anymore.I was in Atlantic City for my girlfriend's bachelorette party last weekend, and I was so happy to avoid the casinos. We didn't even play the penny slots, which is the only thing I'll do when I am persuaded to go to the casino. Some would call me cheap-I just think I'm smart!
Do you find gambling to be a turn-on or a turn-off? Does your guy like to gamble? Are you ever nervous he's going to lose a ton of money?
