John Gray, author of Men are from Mars Women are from Venus wrote: "Men are like rubber bands. When they pull away, they can stretch only so far before they come springing back. A rubber band is the perfect metaphor to understand the male intimacy cycle.”
Hassle them too much with lovey-dovey stuff and they'll say you invade their space! They will automatically move farther, making less contact, talking less and showing less of themselves. They'll start telling you that you are overly-sensitive for noticing their silence, noticing their avoidance.
Fortunately, when a certain need arises (usually with sexual intentions and you don't have to wait long for that), they will automatically make contact again. Bah! Men are ruled by their dick heads!
So girls, satisfy your man sexually (or erotically), ride them with a vengeance, give them a bonk so good they cannot forget you, then leave them alone for their much needed space *sarcastic remark* and I can assure you, like the rubber band, they will come bouncing back for more (... sex, dumbo, not you)!
