When you're with her, you don't appreciate her as much as you do as when she is long gone. In other words, you don't miss your water until your well is dry.

When you're with her everday, sometimes you don't realize you love that person, but when you're away for a long time, you realize you really love that person, you miss her. It's the same thing in fighting. When you do it every day, the stress makes you forget you like that.
