I believe that absence makes the heart grow fonder. For a little while I was feeling very upset with Andy and made some mistakes that I don't think I would have made if he wasn't gone. I guess you could say that I tried the out of sight out of mind but it just didn't work. No matter what I wanted to think he was never out of my mind and that is why I woke up and thought "what are you thinking?". I have realized that this time apart has made our bond stronger and made me realize just how lucky I am to have him in my life. I wouldn't ever want it to be any other way.

I believe both are true just depends on the person. For me not being with my honey makes our love get stronger. But for almost all his friends & half his family apparently out of sight is out of mind. And thats how you find out who is REALLY there for you.

I voted for absense makes the heart grow fonder,because I knew once he turned himself in yes I would miss him, but I didn't know I would miss him this much.

I think both statements and feelings associated with them are true. The difference, at least with hubby and I, is that in our heart of hearts, we kept our thoughts and prayers on each other. Even when we are together, our prayers always include "God please keep watch over and protect my husband and let him know that I send my love to him." At times my husband said that he could actually feel it. I know there were times I could have sworn that I felt my husbands love surround me. I know it sounds strange, but that was how it felt and still feels.

absence makes the heart grow fonder BUT to much distance makes it wonder.
i believe it really depends on the couple.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder describes our situation better. At the end of a visit, I told him I didn't want to leave without him. He told me...."Don't you know I'm part of you?" We've known each other almost our whole lives and have been through all the good and bad life has to offer. I was the last woman he was with before being arrested, so I think that keeps us close also. I keep him clued in on everything that happens to me and he does the same. We take it as it comes and know that one day, we will be back together to make new memories.

hmmm When you are apart you forget the annoying things. However you need to stay in communication to keep that bond.

That man is never OFF my mind I must say and us being apart makes the heart grow even fonder. Most definitely..

I think that both phrases hold truth.
It's clear that "absence makes the heart grows fonder" because damn if all the guys that I used to talk to back in the days don't come back professing their love for me. I swear there's a 3-year process for "absence making the heart grow fonder" because, like clockwork, they come popping up trying to get back with the program right at the 3-year mark of teh last time we spoke.
And for me, with them out of sight, the have consistently stayed off of my mind.

I chose absence makes the heart grow fonder. In my case this is true. Sadly in some cases it is not. I think it just depends on the situation.

I believe in my case absence makes the heart grow fonder because my baby was in seg for almost a month and then a transfer 360 miles away now he's in receiving and we only get to talk for 15 minutes twice a week until he's in general population and I feel his absence is making us closer and stronger and our feelings are growing stronger every day for eachother.

It's not strange..prayers just work like that...especially when ur sincere in what ur asking for..so when u guys say send each other ur love..it gets realistic n u can feel the
Aura..its crazy

it depends on the situation. if we're talking about waiting on a man, then absence makes the heart grow fonder but if we're talkin about a breakup, then it's out of sight, out of mind. both ring true for me.

Unfortunately, significant others tend to disappear. Our men are the lucky ones.

They can both be true it all depends on your relationship. The distance can make your love stronger because you miss each other and you are working as a team n strengthening your relationship but the stress of it all can also make you love fade. People fall in and out of love every day regardless of circumstances and sometimes they just grow apart. Don't beat yourself up sweetie cause sometimes the devil likes to mess with us n makes us think differently

I didn´t choose because in life situations are in most cases more complex than a general saying can capture but at the same time I wouldn´t deny that there is some truth in both of the sayings. it just depends on the individual, on the situation and the relationship with the other party.
