Theory of familiarity

The more familiar you are with a person, the less interesting they become. In other words, the intensity of ‘interesting’ness in a person (IoIP) is inversely proportional to the familiarity with that person (FwP). The more familiar you are with a person, the less interesting they become for you. There are other factors too, but this is the partial proportionality equation here:
IoIP α 1/FwP

The rate of communication (RoC) that you want to maintain with a person is directly proportional to how interesting that person is for you. There are other factors too, but this is the partial proportionality equation here:
RoC α IoIP

Considering only IoIP, FwP, and RoC, and from the above equations:
RoC α 1/FwP

The rate of communication that you want to maintain with a person is inversely proportional to your familiarity with that person.

PS: Of course, there are many other factors too 🙂
