Distance Only Makes the Heart Grow Fonder is the first release by experimental hardcore band Poison the Well. Distance Only Makes the Heart Grow Fonder was recorded and released on Good Life Recordings in 1998. The EP was reissued with the title Distance Makes the Heart Grow Fonder (dropping the word "only" from the name) through Undecided Records in 2002. The reissue contains the original five studio recordings with the 1998 Poison the Well lineup, and two bonus live songs with the 2000 Poison the Well lineup. The two live tracks were recorded from a concert in Boston during the summer of 2000. Studio recordings of these tracks can be found on The Opposite of December.

The intro found on "Grain of Salt (What's the Use of Having a Heart)" is from the 1995 film Angus.
