When you are into someone, you can’t stand a minute without them. You are ready to text them, call them, run to them, and sometimes even fly… And you know what? That’s fantastic! You are in love, and this is the best feeling a human can experience.
But one of the most frequent readers’ questions we get is, “How can I tell someone I miss them without sounding desperate and needy?”
Indeed, it makes sense if you are at the very beginning of your relationship.
When we fall in love with a guy, it’s okay to worry about not showing too much interest, which he might take wrong and run away.
Why not learn how to tell someone you miss them without sounding desperate today?
How to tell someone you miss them without sounding needy
Don’t say it often
It’s too obvious: if you often say “I miss you” or “I love you,” these words simply lose their value. The person may stop perceiving them as something special. Or he may think you are lying or rushing it if you aren’t in a serious relationship yet.
When you are overwhelmed with emotion, it’s easy to lose the sense of proportion. Don’t use too romantic, high-flown language. He doesn’t need poems and unnatural words. So, forget about “I can’t live without you” and things like that if you have been dating for a couple of weeks. But if you do want to sound a little creative, see the next point.
Add humor (optional)
If you aren’t willing to come up with a simple “I miss you, babe”, add some humor to your message. For instance, “I miss you! Like a fat man misses ice cream when on a diet. Can you imagine?” or “I urgently need pizza! You can come too.”
Replace “I miss you” with something else
It’s close to the previous point: you replace “I miss you” with other words. A couple of examples:
- “I wish you were here with me right now.”
- “When I am in your arms, I always feel at home. And now I feel incredible homesickness.”
- “I wouldn’t mind your hug right now.”
- “I wish I was where you are now.”
Why should you be sincere and honest with him about your feelings?
Sincerity will help nudge him into action
Often for a guy, the message “I miss you” is like a green light for decisive action. There is a good trick: instead of “I miss you, I want to see you so much,” you should say, “I cooked your favorite dish and look forward to our meeting.” Will he come asap? Definitely, yes.
It will help him to get distracted from problems
It’s nice to receive such a message as “Five (six, seven, etc.) hours are left before our meeting.” when he is at work.
You can get a date. Guys understand direct words, not hints. Therefore, you need to speak directly about your emotions, and if he is interested in you, he will offer to meet, and if not, then you should not count on a long-term relationship.
Your relationship will improve
The unspoken hinders relationships. So it is always better to speak up and share your emotions and feelings with your partner.
Most guys want to hear nice words addressed to them
The way people treat us can mirror our affection for them. By being sincere with others, we get sincere affection for ourselves. If he is the one, sincerity will improve the relationship.
What is the worst thing that can happen?
- There is no reply. If a man does not show himself after your words, you should not count on further serious connection.
- He understands your “I miss you” in his own way. By these words, a girl often means a simple desire to see her beloved, hug him, hear his voice, while a man may mean a physiological thing. And may misunderstand the girl’s desire.
- He loses interest. In this case, it is worth asking yourself the question, “Do you need someone with whom you need to pretend and play indifference?”
