out of sight, out of mind — you don’t think about it when you can no longer see it [GoEnglish]

    “Out of Sight, Out of Mind” – is also used in context of keeping in touch with known people (friends/relatives) when the conversation frequency fades away and not meet/greet on a frequent basis – as in a forgotten acquaintance.
