A famous English saying goes like this -“distance makes the heart grow fonder”. This means that if you are physically away from someone, you will miss the person more. But in reality, the opposite is quite true. Out of mind, becomes out of sight. And out of sight goes out of mind. The mind generally replays frequently the memories of the recent past. Once you are far away, you no more are recent. You become somewhat a history. The heart starts wandering. Hence, long distance relationships generally don’t work.
Distance makes the grow wander !
