Battle of the proverbs

For some reason, both English proverbs have been dancing in my head the past few days. In some cases, one of the two proverbs applies to two people in a sticky situation. Imagine a rocky friendship: Person A is taken for granted by Person B and decides to stop being friends. Often times, “out of sight, out of mind” aids Person A in moving on to make better acquaintances and friendships while Person B ends up going through “Absence…that makes the heart fonder”.

Both proverbs ring true in a place of distance and space but context determines the winner. Do you agree?
