I just got this question in an email:
My friend is trying to persuade his girlfriend of 4 years to come live with him in Baltimore while he goes to graduate school. Her alternative is getting a masters in art in Austin, Texas, necessitating their break-up. How can he change her mind about this? (Or better yet, how can I?)
Hope you can help.
Here’s what I answered him:
A suggestion is for your friend to find out what is really important to her and help her get it. She will adore him. Manipulation is out – being real and contributing to someone’s quality of life is in!
ps. Love is not getting what you want. It is helping someone else get what they want.
What do you think? Let me know below.
