    any difference?

    1. I have been seeing Judy for more than five years and during that time I have seen many changes in her personality
    2. I have seen Judy for more than five years and during that time I have seen many changes in her personality

    -------
    Is there any difference between above sentences? I think they have the exactly same meaning, but there could be some different feeling.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. I have been seeing Judy for more than five years and during that time I have seen many changes in her personality This one implies that you have seen her in the past and are currently seeing her.
    2. I have seen Judy for more than five years and during that time I have seen many changes in her personality

    In terms of "feelings", the phrase "been seening" is quite often in reference to dating. Sentence # 2 is more open ended.
