I suppose that might still be possible if blind people were mindless.
No,it is not as simple as some make it out to be! Actually, this is the way it usually happens: The longer you have been with a person, the longer it takes to get that person out of your system. Initially, after a breakup you will miss the person a lot and then you might find yourself gradually not missing him/her the way you used to. However, for some, it takes years for them to get over a past lover, and some people will even tell you that they have never gotten over a particular individual. I am going to close this off by saying this: It depends on how deeply rooted the relationship was, and also who left who!
Lol Kate! Absolutely not! If it is of importance it will be on your mind forever. In some cases when you may not care about it whether it be a person or a material object it can be "out of sight, out of mind. Outside of that I don't think that applies to people and things that you care about
No! Its never that simple. Just because something is out of sight dosent mean that its out of mind. A quick example if you were to quite smoking you could remove ash trays ciggerates and lighters from your home but the thought is still there. Just because we take something out of our lives or sight dosent mean we wont still think about it ya for some out of sight is helpfull its not always a promised way of letting go.
This question pops up right when my wife asking me about certain toys and where I kept them.
I just answered her: out of sight, out of mind.
That's really gets into her nerves.
But well, it is true that I really forgotten where I had put them.
Though when it comes to love, it will not apply as it will be heart grows fonder as the person is out of sight and the mind will keep things what the person is doing right now.
If we're talking about inanimate objects, absolutely it's out of sight out of mind. I went through the junk drawer the other day and found something I totally forgot I had! Of course I'm pretty absentminded when it comes inanimate belongings. As for love, I believe absence makes the heart grow fonder, but I don't think it's easy to forget about someone just because you don't see them. Typically, we don't form attachments to objects (unless your me and fell in love with your car) but we do form attachments to people and animals. Just because my puppies died doesn't mean I've forgotten about them.
Object permanence is one of the basic skills in infant development. This developmental milestone is actually composed of several stages. Learning them will help parents provide suitable experiences and interactions to facilitate acquisition of the skill. read more

Can you really fall in love at first sight?Have you ever fell in love at first sight, or is it naive to believe it can happen?

Is there such a thing as love at first sight? In the media and in 'real' life I hear about people getting married after only months of dating and hear phrases being thrown around like "as soon as I saw them I knew". Do you believe in this, or if this has been your experience I would love...
