Then you don't have the temperament to be a successful consultant.

A classmate of mine was a very successful (in income terms) consultant. He wouldn't hesitate to leave a gig when there was a better offer. Or a girlfriend, in the middle of a date. One in particular was a weekend New Years Eve party, in different city, where he left an hour before midnight with someone he had just met, and returned for breakfast the next day. I was impressed with his commitment to the pure consultant lifestyle. If you can't do that, and have the original girlfriend take you back, you don't have what it takes.
