DUH...!
Psychology 1 (Not even 101)
... So old that I learned about it when it was still **under discussion**, and BF Skinner was still kickin'.
So... how fast do YOU get addicted to slot machines?? , 'they're probably the ultimate example of variable-ratio reinforcement.
If you get addicted to slots, then you're wide open lovers doing it to you as well, but folks... the **positive** reinforcement needs to be there, the occasional kind word just is not enough.
And trust me, it doesn't work at all when sometimes the food you cook is great, and sometimes it's lousy.

Thank you for this post. I see so much of this in the guys I've dated and what I accept from them that none of the people that care about me can understand. They say I accept a fraction of what I'm worth, and in the end make excuses for their unacceptable behavior. These "men" are highly intelligent and I have no doubt now that I myself, a very smart but emotionally starved woman have fallen victim. I really hope I can take this lesson and apply it to my my future relationships and no longer accept this horrible treatment. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
