    see / is seeing

    Dear teachers,

    Are all the following tenses possible in this sentence? Do they imply a different meaning?

    She can't stop thinking about all her friends that she sees / is seeing / has been seeing much less often than before.

    Kindest regards,
    Hela

    Re: see / is seeing

    They're all fine. The second and third could both imply that this is a temporary state and that she could see them more often in the future.
