I think physical contact for people is as important as sunlight is for plants and without them there's no growth.
The last five years I've had to travel on the road because there wasn't much work at home.
The significant other didn't like the idea that much but she wasn't the one paying the bills.
Sometimes it would be three four or five months between the times we saw each other.
So either I would make it home yeah between jobs or from place to place or she would sometimes fly in to see me for a weekend. After not seeing her for three months Boy I sure was happy to see her and I loved her to death. So as far as I was concerned yes absence makes the heart grow fonder.
We've been together for 10 years and she was a real pain in the ass when we were together in the same house.
Well it went on like this for a couple more years while I was traveling. You know the weekends are even becoming long visits and she was a pain in the ass even even for long distance at home.
Well she's decided that she had enough. I figure she found somebody else to pay her bills. Why else would she leave me while I was still on the road. I could have died on the way home and should have got everything. Apparently she had some place better to be.
Now don't get me wrong I'm still pissed at this chick years later I did everything I was supposed to in this relationship everything trust honesty the whole nine yards.
Anyways yeah I was upset when she first left the you know but now that she's been gone it's much more peaceful around here much more peaceful so to answer your question yes absence makes the heart grow fonder but at the same time they'll let you really know if you can live without them too.
So the answer to your question is TRUE.
This is why I prefer to go on dates in the beginning of the relationship rather than more casual hanging out and texting all day. Sure technology makes it easy to communicate 24/7 when we meet someone but I believe there needs to be space between for the mind to process and for feelings to grow. So yes I think breaks from someone you are dating are vital to missing them and looking forward to the next time you talk or see them.

False. You shouldn't have to have a break in a good solid relationship. If one wants a break probably means the relationship is already on a thread and about to end. People use breaks to sleep with other people/to end a relationship.
That’s where absence makes the heart grow fonder & out of sight out of mind refer to.
