it just depends on the situation and who the person is :)

A little bit of both depending on the person and how strong the relationship was to start with.

I agree with Fastidious Babe...at first it makes the heart fonder but the more it happens and the longer it takes them to come back, the more out of mind they become.

for me : "Out of sight out of mind"

PaLoMiNo said...

I have No Idea ;X would someone tell me which one is more realistic!?!!

I wish the 1st one is true...

Zeecu said...

I see myself agreeing wholeheartedly with Fastidious Babe's view of it. A bit longer than 3 days tho

out of sight out of mind..
absence make the heart grow fonder..

when you don't see someone for a long time, you tend to forget about them.. but when you see them again or something that reminds you of them, you realize that you miss that person ;)

When you love someone absense makes love grow fonder...

But when it comes to work related ... Out of site is out of mind, which is exactly my case since last so many years ...

Ansam said...

LOL... three days max?

I guess! I cant answer this question myself! I cant pick!

Hmmmm ok!

Thats cheating hehehe a lot of people are saying both!! Well I dont know which one I do believe in.. 100%!

That makes sense actually!

Hmmm! OK!!

OK ;-)


I see! I still think three days is short period of time :-P

B3eed 3an al 3ain, b3eed 3an al galb

I am leaning towards out of sight out of mind... but not there 100%

Yes.. three days is too short!

Hmmmm! ok!!

Another "both"

LOL ok ;-)

Both again ;-)

His Sweetheart-
For as long as it takes?

And if I may add... it depends on why they are absent, right?
