Who coined the phrase, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”? Because I want to find him or her and ask, “Have YOU ever been in a long distance relationship? Do you even KNOW what it’s like?”
Being away from someone for months at a time is stressful, uncomfortable, and depressing. It can break your heart, but I don’t know about this “growing fonder” shit.
Distance causes frustration, sure. The texting, Skyping, and phone calls don’t necessarily make our hearts grow fonder. They make our hearts weaker. Distance makes our hearts crumble.
Distance makes us want to erase the miles and just be with the people we love. No fighting, no talking. All we want is to be in the same place at the same time.
Distance makes our heart grow…distant.
