by Allen Thompson If you want to keep your lady, and not be cast upon the broken-hearted heap of lovers she's left behind, you must get her invested in your relationship.
So what exactly do we mean by getting her to invest in your relationship? Imagine your girl slowly approaching it, studying it for a moment, tentatively sitting down, then popping a coin in and pulling the handle. Because she's convinced that if she keeps at it, keeps pulling that handle, eventually she's going get what she wants.You must get her to invest effort into your relationship.Basically let her, ask her, or prompt her if necessary, to do things for you — from time to time.Don't always be the one putting yourself out for her.even with the mighty Wayne beckoning to her from just across the street.Well, in the Dating Casino of Life, you are the slot machine.
And it's your job, as a successful and happy Don Juan, to keep your lady pumping those coins in - and upping her investment in you - so that as soon as Wayne Newton, or some other hairy-butted diversion comes along, she won't be tempted to take off and check out his show.
Okay, so now that you realize the power of investing, the question becomes: how do we up her investment in the relationship so she's not tempted to leave us as soon as something, or someone, a little more interesting comes along? The first and most important area you want to focus on is EFFORT.
The odds being what they are, she doesn't win anything... The very next pull might be the one that sets off the JACKPOT.
Now if her girlfriend came up to her after she'd put only a coin or two in the machine and said, "Let's go.
Wayne Newton's coming on in half an hour." She'd probably pop right up and head on out to see the show - Wayne being a little more "interesting" than the slot machine she's sitting at.
On the other hand, if her girlfriend came up to her with the same offer after she'd been continuously popping coins in this #*%#@# machine for half an hour, it would be much harder for her to get up and leave, and give up her "investment" in this machine...
