  • The people I love without any doubt at all
  • The person I love...new careers can be made. But, I have the career I have BECAUSE of the person I love and I love that he loves and supports the career that I have....
  • Sometimes the person you love can destroy your career and then leave you anyway and then you have nothing. Stop giving the goody goody answers and recognize that in real life one has to acknowledge a greater reality than can be defined by one - sentence feel good answers.
  • Both r equally important in their own aspects. Bt if the situation comes where u hav 2 choose between ur career & ur luv, then luv is more important. U might choose ur career & might even flourish in it. 1 fine day u look back in2 ur life & u would c d@ there's sumthin missing in ur life. U would never find real happiness.
  • I've noticed that the question asks about "the person you love" indicating to me a significant other of sorts, yet a lot of the answers deal with "the PEOPLE I love", which is more indicative of family, friends, and may include a significant other in the mix. I have deliberately avoided romantic involvement for a long tome to pursue both a career in music, and animal shelter work. So on that level, I would DEFINITELY say I'm more career oriented. On the other hand, If I had to choose between my career and my family and close friends, I'd choose the people any day.
  • No contest. My partner is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING in my life. EVERYTHING is secondary to her.
  • The person I love cause he is always there for me where a career is not.
  • My Career right now and that is only because I have no one to love right now. If or when that happens then they will be more important.
  • career < love < job I don't really need a career, but I need a job 2) "They say the best thing to do with your life when you're young is get a career, but what is a career? A career is simply a 9 to 5, making the same wages hoping for a raise. A career is a safe front. With a career you have the "at least I have a job" mode. How good is that? Think about if every billionaire stick to their career will they really be billionaire? Will the lottery be your career? People love to be in a safe zone that their ambition is depleted. Love is ambition you need to explore it. Yes you're putting your heart on the line. Yes you don't know if you'll get it crush. It's not the end result that matter it's the journey."

  • Family always comes first. period.
  • Career...total career.
  • well i hope the person i love would compromise with my career or we are going to have serious problems
  • I am lucky enough to be able to make a career out of creating a home and hopefully soon a healthy family FOR the person I love. Best job in the world!
  • my lady .. above everything else
  • My Wife, my Mom , and Family By a longshot !
  • Jeez. I don't have either yet but I'd pick the person I love.
  • person I love, without question... I wouldn't mind having a hundred careers in my lifetime, as long as I had the one I love to come home to after a long day..
  • The person I love. I've been with him through 3 careers...
  • The person I love...that will always be more important to me. I may love my job, but it won't hug me at night or tuck me or doing anything for me like my soon to be husband will! I have hated every job that I have until the one I have now. AND I have hated everyone that I went out with until I met my husband! I love my job but, I would love to never have to work again. I could never say something like that about my fiancee..he is my one and only
  • NO question, it has to be love, never career. Career is so low on the priority list for me.
  • It depends. My career would be to take care of us so I can't choose...but then again if it ever came down to it, I'd make her happy first.
  • Given how the workplace takes and takes and never gives, other than a chicken feed salary, I would say my baby Rosie, for she is a giver. LOL. However, I do need to focus a bit more on my job, for with the job, comes the money, and with the money, I can spoil her more, though I PRAY she is not that materialistic or that I will make her that way! (ponders who likely it is that Roselynn is a gold digger)
  • Currently there is no person I love, at least not romantically, but I would say that the people I love, friends, family, and when romantic love occurs, are much more important to me than a career. A career might be fulfilling, but without people around who loved me, a good job alone would never be enough to make me completely content.
  • Person ahead of career...ALWAYS!
  • The people I love.
  • There is no contest - the person I love is infinitely more important to me than my career. But the reality is that since I am the one supporting my children and I love them, I had to choose my career over love. I am an idealist though, and believe one day it will all work out.
  • my husband wins hands down
  • MY family comes first. It does take my job to support them but jobs are a dime a dozen and my family is the only one I have they cannot be replaced.
  • Since I don't have an S/O...My career is whats important, and even if I had one it would be.
  • i think, that both are important. but your love should be more important. that is if you truly are in love. because falling in love is a beutiful thing and you do not want to lose that. talk to your love and they will understand if they love you that your career is important. hey more money the better... but dont forget about your love..try to make time...and dont get to carried away with your career....it wastes your life...
  • if you are truely in love, it will be clear
  • I gave up mine for my husband and family. Never regretted it once, either!
  • person I love whats my career without them
  • the person i love. they always will come first in my book.
  • The person I love is more important, my career doesn't have feelings, he does.
  • Is that even a question?? The family all the way!!
  • Too easy. Somebody to love.
  • the person i love and my family comes first besides im my own boss :P i cant fire myself
  • The person I love means more to me than any job ever could.
  • My career. I live alone, have 3 kids and date. I have to take care of my kids by myself. And I do. I won't ask for help.
  • I work for the sake of those I love. I don't want them to have to pick up the financial burden for me.
  • well thats kind of a akward question for I would have not have met the person who I came to love was it not for the job that i had.
  • Coming up on that little question myself. I'm pursuing a career but am involved with someone I think I might marry. He is military and could transfer to another base at anytime. I think that if he does I'll go with him, but still pursue my education, cuz that is my future. No one should have to choose. They should simply compromise. A career can be found anywhere, but your love is one of a kind, and may be the only thing that keeps you going at times.
  • the person I love
  • I don't have a career. I have a job, it's nothing more and it's nothing less. Of course I love my partner and he is most important.
  • They are both equally important. I'd say I spend the same amount of time on both. I love my boyfriend, but I'm also going to school for nursing. They both take up a lot of my time, and I think it is important to balance both of them!
  • The person I love. When I have a hard day at work, there's nothing like coming home to someone you love.
  • The ones I love. Family "ALWAYS" comes first in my opinion. :)
  • The person I love, without him I would not have been able to go back to school to find my career.
  • It would be a person I love.
  • I sacrificed my career to stay home with our kid. All my choice but still, it's not been an easy transition at all. I miss my work every day.
  • based on my behavior at this moment, the most important thing in my life is not the person i love or my career, but, rather, answering your question ...
  • The people i love have always been more important to me than anything else.
  • The person I love most is me, so I will always take priority over my career.
  • The person I love.
  • The person and the people I love.
  • the person i love
  • My /education/career is more important than the person I love right now. But I put that person before me. Basically saying, my career is more important than my life. Does that even make sense?
  • by far.. person i love.... but he loves me back.. so i can focus all i want on my career as well <3 he's so good to me :)
  • my dog
  • Well to me the most important thing to me is the person i love. he is my world and everything i need. you can awlays find a new career, i mean, you might have to work hard but you will find another career, for most if you lose the love of your life it wont come back to you. So, the person i love is more important to me.
  • My Family! Everything else is meaningless!
  • career was more important than the person i love. i lost the love of my life. now, i love my doggy more than anything. i'll probably have the courage to get back together with another person sometime, but, not yet today. i love my kids now more than anything and i'll never repeat the mistake of putting my career before my loved ones!!!
  • career....Love dont pay the bills....
  • career...because if thats stable.i bet u can get one..
  • Love, a carrer is something made and can be remade without playing with the human emotions. Love is already defined as the most important thing to have in life, so a career obviously comes second.
