jbwordsmith: (contemplative)
So Jaime and I were speculating tonight, and decided that:

A. For girls, it's true that "absence makes the heart grow fonder."

B. For guys, it's pretty much "out of sight, out of mind."

In other words, girls analyze relationships much more than guys do. Or so we think. But we don't really know.

Anyone want to weigh in on this topic? Is our theory based in fact, or is it flawed in some crucial point?
