A doubles partnership is very much like a marriage. Some people enter it at a whim, not really expecting anything to come from it. In such cases, usually nothing does. The players involved may enjoy a win or three, but once they get past the infatuation phase, they discover that they really don’t have what it takes to last. And they split.
Other players are doubles flirts. They play first with this one, and then with that one, never settling down, never committing to any of their hook-ups. Some such players often don’t even decide on a doubles partner until they get tossed out in singles, and then grab at the first chance that happens across their path. For them doubles is just a convenience, a way to keep in shape and to make some extra money.
