There are many relationships we form in life: friends, house mates, lovers, classmates, work colleagues, roommates, best friends, table mates at assigned seating on cruises, etc.. I've been thinking about some of those and have noticed a disturbing trend regarding diminishing returns.
For one type of relationship, the trend is 14 years... 12 years.
For another, the trend is 8 years... 6 years.
I'm about to consider reembarking on both types, so am guessing 10 and 4 respectively.
Let's see if I can reverse 'em.
