    Hm, no, I don't think that I get bored of people (unless they were boring to me in the first place). The longer I get to know them and the more I like them, the more I enjoy it. Seems though that other people don't show the same attitude towards me, and so ways split.

    One of my sayings is that there are New People people and Old People people. I'm an Old People person

    This is my theory:

    New People people - Are excited about new people and put time, effort, resources and the needs of new and interesting people first. You start off at #1 and slowly slide down the priority list over time.

    Old People people - Are drawn to security and stability in friendships. They put time, effort, resources and the needs of proven people first. You start at the bottom of their list and gain priority over time.

    Just a personal observation.

    I think I'm the same, most of the research on friendship I've read resonates with me, that people have maybe at most half a dozen to a dozen friends with some ascending and descending in esteem or interest at all times, usually with one or two best friends to which they remain attached (even if they are married or partnered).

    I've got suspiscions about how friendships, like so many other relationships, have been influenced by consumerism in the economy and culture, people crave novelty, upgrades, change for changes sake, boredom or routine or sameness is the new great satan, so some people go through friends like other people go through books, games or video. I include myself in that, I dont think anyone can grow up in a culture uninfluenced or unaffected by it even if you dont believe it, value it etc. or actively wish to.

    There are certain people that I click with so well that I really don't care about their flaws and I could hang out with them forever. (Well, clearly not FOREVER since I'm an introvert. :P)

    But, then there are certain people that have certain flaws that I find extremely irritating. (i.e self absorption and hypocrisy, to name a few.) I mean, I know nobody's perfect and we're all guilty of self absorption and hypocrisy to some extent, but those kind of people that seem to use those two things every minute of their every day life really irritate the crap out of me.

    THOSE are the kind of people I get tired of.

That kind of sends a wrong message and things start to go downhill from there.
    I think I can relate.

    Yes and no. It depends on my mood, it seems. Sometimes I feel like I get soooooo bored of people, because I've got them all figured out, or little details of a person I once loved everything about have started really getting on my nerves. But then I keep running back to them and keep trying to uphold the relationship anyway. I always feel like I'm putting 100% into my relationships while other people aren't, so that makes me feel jaded about the whole thing. And yet I am completely prepared to continue to put 100% into the relationship no matter what happens. Also, if someone who previously doesn't "put as much" into the relationship as I do takes some initiative, it can really get me interested in our relationship again.

    So, I guess "yes and no" is the only way I can say it.

    I've decided to stop investing myself so intensely into people. I screwed up too often, had my heart broken and dried up doing it and made the people feel uncomfortable, realizing there was an unhealthy obsessive attitude about it that had something to do with unresolved childhood pain.
    Now, I let them come. I respond with love and open arms, but allowing the relationship to be equal is wiser, even though it requires patience.

    I like this way of putting it! I think I'm an extremes gal. I like new people, I like old people, but I don't want to bother with anything in between.

    I don't get bored with people I get exhausted.

    Anyone else ever enthusiastically write and essays worth of thoughts about a certain subject, only to read it, realize it sucks, and then delete it all?

    In a way, that's how I am with people.
