    It's the classic "you want what you can't have". People also sometimes like the thrill of the chase more than the actual kill (figuratively speaking, of course.)

    People always want what they can't have but easily egt bored with what they do have. Well, shallow people, anyway. Your best bet is to find a person who wants you no matter what and steer clear of indicisive people who will only make you msierable.

    It's simple...  Women enjoy the thrill of the hunt.  Also, knowing another woman has an interest in you, makes them fight even harder.  Its strange, I agree.  I am not so sure we are supposed to understand women.

    they only find you challenging, and if they have you they'll just take you for granted

    Sounds like you're asking the question because maybe you've had a bad experience. I'm sorry if that's true.

    The honest truth is that not all partners are like that. Some are loving, kind and respectful all the time. That doesn't mean that they'll never have a bad day or say or do something that they might regret, but in general, they are wonderful good people who would never want to hurt you.

    I have one of those good people. I hope that someday you find yours.

    That question has been a mystery throughout human history. It's like the saying that you don't know what you've got until it's gone. However, it seems that once you realize what you lost that when you get back together you can take each other for granted again.
    As humans we can be lazy and don't want to put in the hard work it takes to have a great relationship. When we are apart we have dreams of greatness about the other person. However, when we are back together we are faced with the reality of the work and soon lose interest.

    Because people are idiots. We always want what we can't have and then once we get it, we don't want it.

    my idea of heaven is knowing some things can be taken for granted,... but never are,... and in answer to the question,... because some people will always be foolish indecisive children that act that way,... date grown-ups.(and yes, i say this to myself every day in the mirror to no avail as well)

    It's human nature to want what you don't have. That's actually the philosophical definition of want, the result of not having something. That's why co-dependent couples usually fail in the end, they don't have enough time apart to be able to truly appreciate one another when they are together.

    What I've found is that once you are apart and possibly finding an interest in someone else, THATS when they want you back. They don't want you with anyone else. Then they get you back and it goes right back to the same old routine again until someone says enough is enough. As the saying goes... you always want what you think you can have. Its a power struggle.

    it's called immaturity----> insanity---> wake up call---> incoherant---->ungrateful---->  For granted---->  need I go on.  If you could replace each of these words with a positive one, no such thing would  happen...Think about it, if people took the time to see the value of the things they are given, there would be no need to desire and need it after you've thrown it away!
