    "absence makes the heart grow fonder"? Does Time apart from someone make them appreciate you more or will their feelings become stronger?

    Well a couple of days or a week could make the heart grow fonder but if it's a month or two it'll make it go yonder.

    Sorry... but I'm listening to a song in which that is the first line. I've got to share it.

    well from what I have seen so far and how i at least beleive it to be.. you never truely realize what you had/possibly have if you get thta second chance unless you spend that time away from each other. was 2months to the day since my ex and i had seen each other and alot happened. I changed... i became a stronger more vibrant person and he began to notice that if he didnt act fast he would loose me for good. He wanted me back after about a month but I wasnt ready. I wanted to start at zero but yeah.... that just proved to be too hard for me after a while.

    Yeah I've always felt that people do not appreciate what they have until it's gone, we get comfortable, and certain times take our blessings for granted.

    Yes, I feel like it does. Which is one component to my reasoning that I do not feel as though LDRs are too enduring so long as the relationship is founded upon strong communication, trust, patience, and maturity. while that does not sound any different from a non-LDR ... if anything is to be long-term ... it must have the same components as a vector: direction and bearing. both of which take work, planning, and resilience.

    Being away from him is like watching the sun set ... but when I return to his smile ... it is as though the sun has risen again.

    I think that sometimes we all need some space and that when we get it we often realize our good fortunes. However, in a good relationship, that's "magic", you can be around someone 24 x 7 without issues. My parents had it for their 58 years of marriage. I never saw them grow sick of each other. I've run across it a few times. If a relationship is constant work then perhaps it's not optimal.

    jprichva saidNo, but I've heard that absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.


    Isn't the saying absinthe makes the tart grow fonder?
