Maybe this is a dumb question, but I was reading a lot of posts lately and this is something I don't quite understand. I know that a N will come back when he runs out of supply or is in fear or needs something. My N has D&D'd me many times, then comes back, then runs off, etc. But what makes them stop coming back to you, (outside of our NC of course)? My N and I have had many intense D&Ds and even with that he would still come back. But, I have read some posts where women have said that they haven't heard from their N in over a year. In one thread I read that they will always try to come back, but in another thread it seemed to say they were gone for good. So what would stop them from coming back to you as supply? Has anything been written about that?
