"Absence makes the heart grow fonder" or "Out of sight, out of mind"?
Both. I don't miss most people too much when they're absent, but I do enjoy seeing them again when I can.
I can understand the even split. It doesn't say fond or forget after how long.
I left my family and everything I've known since I was 6 in Oklahoma to come to Maryland. It's easier to just not think about everyone and everything I miss there.
join the military and leave your wife and children for 6+ months. I say fonder.
Yeah it's all about context of question. Once enough time goes by its out of sight out of mind but if u know you will be seeing the person again it tends to be fonder
I think it does make the heart grow fonder I'm surprised by the result but its kinda how u look at the question because if it goes to long then it does start to become out of sight out of mind. I assume they mean maybe weeks apart tho
I work 2wks away from home n then 2wks at home. Both apply.
Depending on the context of the situation.
I feel "fonder" is more for the partner who was broken up with who realizes how much the other did for them now that they r gone OR for couples still together who reflect on their relationship when the other is away. "Outta sight" is used more for ppl trying to get through a break up. I use both
In college, I spent a summer overseas. When I came back, my boyfriend (now husband) proposed.
In nearly every single instance of my life and those surrounding me, the men would say outta sight (but may not admit it) and the women would say fonder.
I really want outta sight, outta mind. But fonder it is...
Depends on the subject. I've been away from the big city for a bit and thought, wow this really is pleasant out here, but been away from my girlfriend for a bit and realized how much I really do love her...
don't worry. the right girl will wait faithfully because she loves you and supports you!
I think it really depends on how much time you can spend thinking about them. One of my ex-girlfriends used to go to Europe every summer (her fam owns a business there, she runs it now). I would be so busy working and seeing my friends that I barely had time to dwell on her absence from my life.
Depends on the person for me. All my ex's, out of sight. My wife, fonder.
Fonder. My husband leaves for several months at a time and it never gets easier. I only get to talk to him every few weeks and it always makes me happy!
Its a little bit of both
depends on how you left the person.
Depends. If you love the person, it's absence/fonder. If not, the latter.
I don't know how the relationship is still working for you guys but you must really love each other, I know I couldn't do it.
Wow that sucks but I agree it's not always the case. Those girls obviously have no morals!
It depends on the relationship - if it's just a little crush, or it's your family, I think it's different.
Well it depends if it's people I hate or people I like. When my enemies are away I am very happy when I find out and then I just forget about them.
Depends on the relationship and how long you're away
Fonder for family, out of sight with friends.
Humans are terrible at living on memories. We might idealize someone yes but, there is a reason long distance relationships rarely work out.
Not everyone is like that :)
This depends on the person I think. I don't think this is one of; this always happens type of things. Some can make it work and some not.
Who was she again?
Twice I've left a girlfriend at home when I left for military duty and both times I got cheated on while I was away (different girls) so I put forgetful.
cool song. I'd see it as a happy day, I'd you weren't being sarcastic.
Definitely depends on who or what the subject is.
I take a vacation every year and I can't wait to take it. It's almost as if its more fun to wait for it than to actually go sometimes.
Depends on what/who it is.
It depends on what is not with us. :)
That said, getting back from a long trip is rather passionate.
A relationship built on sex is not the strongest. Friendship and commitment go much further.
Well observed, AnnieM.
Many marriages end after a deployment. And some go on never knowing what each other did while they were apart. It's sad.
Personally I say fonder because I miss my hubby so much when we are apart we are always much nicer when we are together again. But as someone who has deployed to the Middle East I can tell you the opposite is true for most people. Both wives and husbands can't last a single deployment without sex.
Depend on who or what you're talking about.
If you really love them fonder. My boyfriend lives in Las Vegas and I always looking forward to seeing him and its just much more special because he's my soulmate.
Aww me too and I always look forward to those times.
It depends on the people. My boyfriend and I have spent more time apart than together for the almost 7 months that we've been dating. I go to college 5 hours away. However, it's all so worth it each time we see each other. :)
It depends on the person for me.
When I graduated, they played "school's out". And not just for summer - forever. A sad day indeed.
On what ;)
I think the longer someone is gone, the more you remember the good things and forget the bad. If you truly care, that is.
I wish it were as simple as either of those answers.
