Absence makes the heart….delusional?

Whether away on a business trip or having a long distance relationship via email, text and phone, when the object of our romantic interest is away we tend to hold an ideal vision of him/her the mind. Upon return there is a resettling phase where we reconcile the ideal and the real. “I forgot how annoying he is when he interrupts me/farts/watches tv too loud.” “Will she ever stop complaining about her weight?” Recognize and accept an adjustment period. Flesh and blood is always messier than fantasy.
