Riddle me this: why is it that some women, while with you, can be utterly captivated by you... then they leave your side and you never hear from them again?
Why is it that some women can be in a relationship and totally compliant with you, yet you send them off for a few days into the hands of their workmates or their wild party friends, and by the time they get back to you you're dealing with full-on rebellion?
Why is it that a girl will agree with you completely and tell you you are right about something, yet after a few days away she comes back and says "Actually you're wrong" and you have to have the same argument all over again?
It's because influence has a half-life, and every time you're away from her, your interest decays.
Your ability to influence another person is in direct proportion to that person's level of sustained exposure to you.
The less sustained that exposure is, the less strong the influence, and the more quickly it falls apart.
