So you want to modify a girlfriend’s behavior. Yet if you come out and say, “I want you to change,” you’ll offend. You must employ subtler means.
I was talking with my best friend the other day. He’s married but still occasionally reads Girls Chase. Plus, we talk all the time, so he’s bound to hear about girls and then talk about them.
One of his particular interests in relationship management right now is using social media to change the behavior of one’s girlfriend or wife.
We’ve discussed operant conditioning with relationships before. Encourage and reward what behavior you like; ignore the behavior you don’t.
But what we haven’t discussed too much is how to get the ball rolling with operant conditioning – how do you show her what you want her to do?
After a long talk on the phone with my buddy, we came up with a good system for guys in relationships to follow.
