Doing the infamous “pick me dance” never works. You chase they move farther away.I took my wife to Ruth's Chris last night for dinner, it was over booked so we went to Longhorn. Someone advised me to make a real attempt to save my marriage. We talked, laughed and played a game on her phone while we waited to be seated. After dinner in the car on the way home she assured that she was done and sorry that it wasn't going to work out like I'd hoped. The book that I'm reading has 5 stages, from what I can tell I'm at stage 4.
Rewarding bad behavior gets you what? More of it.
A lot just won’t listen though. They just come here to vent.
