In which would you agree? "Absence makes the heart grow fonder or farther"?

During my college days, i had a boyfriend whom i love so dearly. I want it every minute to be with him. As if being with him at all times. When suddenly the semestral break came in only 2 weeks to sacrifice not seeing him because my mother is so strict at that time. No boys allowed for her reasons that it could affect my studies. When it is time for school, i suddenly felt that i was cold with my boyfriend. I haven't felt the same intensity of affections until i decided to break up with him. Does i believe that the absence makes the heart grow farther!!! Do you agree with me my friends?

Well, for me depending on the situation. If you find your true love... even years of separation would not stop you from missing him.I think you just dont reach the point that you find someone that is really meant for you. If time comes that it happen, you would say that the saying is true. But in case, that you are just inlove for the reason taht you see something in him that you like then maybe you would say that absence makes the heart go farther

i believe absence makes the heart grow fonder because when you're so accustomed to spending time with a person it's hard to be seperated from them. You're going to miss them more. I remember i went to my friends house for the weekend and I missed my boyfriend so terribly cause I spent so much time with him when i was at home. I stayed on the phone with him almost the entire time but some say thats not a healthy relationship because you begin to grow tired of the person.

i go with the first choice... absense makes the heart grow fonder. my boyfriend and i were apart for a year before. i was in the philippines while he's in sweden. everyday was a painful one for me. i always look forward to that day when we can be together. love kept growing stronger day after day despite the distance. now, we're together for more than a year already and we're still so much inlove. i think if it's true love, nothing can slow down your love for a certain person. near or far, love will always be as heavy and better day after day.

for me,absence makes the heart go wonder.in a short time,i suppose,the absence will make the heart grow fonder.it will make you realize how much you miss your loved one.however,prolonging the absence will make you get used to it.you thought that you could not live without him/her.eventually,you realize that you're wrong.you would wonder if he/she is seeing somebody else.the cloud of doubt would destroy the trust left and the relationship would now be in disarray.then,you wonder if you want to be with that person any longer. i'm not being cynical about love.i still believe that love conquers all.

i do believe that absence makes the heart grows fonder. it's true. i'm in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend of 3 years and we're still going strong. it takes hard work and effort to make a relationship work. =) maybe that guy isn't the one for you. stay strong and happy mylotting!

personaly i think tht statement is very true. i long u go with out something or someone the more u want it. for me its my ex tht i had a 3 year relationship with, tht was the longest one i've ever had and i miss it very much. i never thought tht i would miss something like tht. i'm the kinda of person tht really dosent show much emotion to anyone due to my past. i've notice tht for the past 5 years i've been missing her more and more and i cant get her out of my mind or even my dreams.

How does that song go?? "And love will keep us together" If you really loved him then not even your mother would keep you apart. See when you love someone you just do not miss them you need them. You are sick without them. Don't let your mother make your life decissions for you. At sometime you have to figure out weather or not you sink or swim.

You don't love him. You just enjoyed the time being with him. Wait for the true love and you will realize it's true.
