Default How does your significant other feel about your truck hobby? (and others)

My gf does not want to be part of the truck modding (mainly spending any money on modding it) , she doesnt care and does not want to help me with it at all. however she loves the ranger and loves riding in it!

BUT she is hands down all in support of me spending money on my mountian bike, doing races and driving far away to ride....

Well first she should not have to help , it's your hobby, but I would not give a flying f%&^ about whether she cared or not, you are not married to her, and she probably wont be your last girlfriend, So tell her it's your and it makes you feel good, anyways I wouldn't worry about her as it's your mom you need to be worried about; since she wont even let you get a darn bodylift. beats me

Honestly, a lot of people just don't understand. But, they keep their cars dirty, and not taken care of.

And that is why she has been referred to as "the last one"

I would say my truck is the reason I don't have a girl... But attracts them left and right. I've said it once and I'll say it again. I can spend a million or no money on a girl and she can leave me tomorrow. I can spend a million or nothing on my truck and she'll still be in my driveway 10 years down the road.

my wife likes my trucks so im lucky in that respect. shes glad that my hobbies arent drugs and hookers so she doesnt give me grief about my trucks.
