Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.47.35
yathā dūra-care preṣṭhe
mana āviśya vartate
strīṇāḿ ca na tathā cetaḥ
yathā — as; dūra-care — being situated far away; preṣṭhe — a lover; manaḥ — the minds; āviśya — becoming absorbed; vartate — remain; strīṇām — of women; ca — and; na — not; tathā — so; cetaḥ — their minds; sannikṛṣṭe — when he is near; akṣi-gocare — present before their eyes.
When her lover is far away, a woman thinks of him more than when he is present before her.
According to Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī, the same holds true for men, who become more absorbed in thinking of a beloved woman when she is far away than when she is present before their eyes.
