I miss you so much.
Every love-struck man knows that strong feeling. You can’t stop thinking about her, and there aren’t enough words to truly convey how much you want to see her. She’s on your mind 24/7, and the only cure for your longing is to talk and connect.
And yet, despite how much your heart aches, you might worry about how to tell her how you feel. You may be nervous about coming across as overly dramatic or too sensitive. You don’t want to overwhelm her with emotional messages that don’t fit the script.
That said, the right ‘I miss you’ messages can make all the difference in proving your commitment and showing her just how much you care. Let’s get into what you need to know.
When Should You Send ‘I Miss You’ Messages?
There’s a sweet spot for sending an I Love You Message. And while every relationship is different, here are some of the best times to reach out.
First thing in the morning: Everyone loves a thoughtful good morning text! This is a sweet way to start her day off on a good note.
Last thing at night: Let her know that she’s on your mind as you drift into the continuous black night. It shows that you’ll be missing her as you sleep alone, and you’ll still be thinking about her once the bright blue sky returns again!
When you’re doing something fun alone: It’s unlikely that you will spend every waking moment together. But there’s something inherently thoughtfully about saying something like, I’m having a great time, and all that’s missing is you.
When you know she’s doing something she doesn’t really enjoy: Whether she’s on a dreadful work trip or spending time with family she doesn’t really like, she’ll appreciate a kind text message that comes out of nowhere. It’s like a spot of warm sunshine on an icy cold day!
Romantic ‘Miss You Messages’ That Will Make Her Day
If you really miss her and want her to know exactly how you feel, here are some sweet, romantic messages to get your point across.
#1 I Miss You So Much
Sure, there are countless words you can use to describe how much you miss your girl. But more isn’t always better, and sometimes simplicity really is best. Saying I miss you so much conveys that you’re thinking about her and that you can’t wait to see her again.
#2 Every Love Song I Hear Reminds Me of You
If you both like listening to music, this is a great way to show how certain songs make you think about her. You can deepen this message by sending her a specific song that you’ve associated with her loving presence.
#3 I Can’t Stop Missing You
This is a more vulnerable take on the classic, I miss you so much. It conveys that you genuinely can’t get her out of your mind!
#4 You Know You’re My Soul Mate, Right?
Of all the ways to tell a girl you care about her, there’s nothing quite as impactful as the soul mate expression. This shows that you not only love her, but that she’s truly the only one in the world for you.
#5 I Miss You- Life Feels So Boring When You’re Not Here
In an endless garden of wildlife, is she that rare flower that lights up your entire world? Let her know how dull life feels when she’s not around. It’s like the entire world loses its shine!
#6 I Feel Lonely and Miss You So Much
Let’s be real- she brings you the most beautiful pleasure and joy. When she’s not around, the world just feels a little darker.
There’s no shame in acknowledging that things feel lonely without her! This demonstrates that you’re secure enough in your relationship to acknowledge that you have vulnerable feelings.
#7 Do You Even Know How Much I Miss You Right Now?
While open-ended questions tend to be beneficial for deepening intimacy, this simple yes-or-no question shows a sense of boldness. You’re acknowledging that you miss her, but you’re also curious to see how she responds!
#8 The Hours Feel Endless Waiting to See You
Do you feel like you have to wait forever to see her again? It’s painful, but sharing that a day spent apart feels like agony reminds her just how special she really is.
#9 I Miss Your Beautiful Smile
If you want to send a perfect good morning text, this one is it!
You can also replace smile with any other physical feature that you love, including her eyes or face. The point is that you can’t get her gorgeousness out of your head!
#10 I Miss My Lovely Girl!
She’s perfect and lovely and you could scream it from the highest building!
But you don’t need to do that- you can just send her this thoughtful and kind text to let her know that she’s deeply missed!
#11 Hey Babe! Thinking About You! I Miss You!
Pairing your preferred pet name (whether it’s babe, baby, gorgeous, or sexy) provides a friendly approach to letting her know she’s on your mind.
#12 I’m Honestly a Complete Mess Without You!
This text is best sent when you two already have a mutual sense of shared humor. You don’t want to come across as inept or incapable when she’s gone. Instead, you want to convey that she adds immense joy and meaning into your life.
Of course, be mindful of the context before you send this message.
If you know she might take this too literally- or if she has the tendency to feel guilty or want to take care of people- reevaluate if this text might trigger her to feel badly about herself.
#13 You’re My Whole World, and I Miss You!
If they’re the bright sun in your life- if all the shining stars remind you of their radiant love, this is the message to send! You’re letting her know that you truly feel like the luckiest man in the world, and that she’s undoubtedly the source of water in a beating, hot desert.
#14 Miss You! I’m Thinking About All The Awesome Things We’re Going to Do Next Time I See You!
This is a sweet message to send to convey just how much you enjoy spending time together. Don’t be afraid to tell her what you also want to do!
It can be as sweet as saying, I just can’t wait to give you a big, tight hug, or as thoughtful as saying, I’m planning a picture-perfect night for the two of us next weekend. I think you’re going to love it!
#15 I Miss and Love You With All My Heart
This is a lovely ‘miss you’ message that combines how you love her and long for her at the same time. There’s a beautiful pleasure with that feeling- even if it paradoxically feels like the ugliest pain when you’re apart.
#16 I Don’t Have the Right Words to Tell You How Much I Miss You Right Now
I miss you so much says so many things, but it can’t say everything. Sometimes, there just aren’t words that fully capture a specific situation.
When you wholeheartedly love someone, It’s normal to occasionally feel so consumed by your emotions that you don’t even know how to adequately describe them.
Instead of trying to attempt to articulate your feelings, consider that it’s okay to acknowledge that you don’t have the words. She means so much to you that you’re practically speechless!
‘Flirty Miss You’ Messages to Drive Her Wild
Here’s the thing- you love talking to her, and you love watching how she responds to your flirty behavior. You recognize that you spend a portion of your life missing her, but maybe it feels weird calling her your shining star or radiant moon.
Here are some flirty ways to let her know she’s on your mind.
#17 I Can’t Wait to Show You Just How Much I’ve Missed You
This is a vague and seductive text that will get her imagination running! How exactly will you show her? You can be as descriptive or subtle as you want to be in follow-up texts.
#18 I Miss You…Can You Guess What I’m Thinking About Right Now?
Even if you aren’t thinking dirty thoughts, there’s something inherently mysterious and exciting about this kind of message! You’ll be feeling equally thrilled as you wait for her response.
#19 I Miss You and Can’t Stop Thinking About Last Night
If you two had the most amazing time together, don’t hesitate to let her know it’s still fresh on your mind! Many times, people second-guess themselves after a date, and so this text will come across as reassuring that you had a great time!
#20 I Miss Kissing You
You love hugging, kissing, and cuddling her. So, if you two have recently spent some time apart, let it be known how much you long for those physical acts of affection. And if you really want to be bold, don’t be afraid to take things a little more R-rated!
Vulnerable, Honest Miss You Messages to Share Your Real Feelings
Real love requires a sense of vulnerability. And while you don’t have to share all your feelings all the time, there’s something incredibly connecting about letting your guard down and being honest about what you’re experiencing. Here are some messages to consider sending.
#21 I Feel Scared Knowing How Much I Miss You
Even if she thinks of you as some strong, self-assured guy, there’s a beauty in revealing that you miss her more than you think you should.
This also shows that you aren’t afraid to share your true feelings. You value being honest and forthcoming, and you care about her so much that you don’t care if it makes you look cheesy!
#22 My Lonely Heart Misses Your Beautiful Face
Is this line cheesy? Yes. But is heartfelt and likely to make her smile? Also yes.
There’s a wonderful simplicity in being able to send corny messages to the woman you love.
#23 I Miss You So Much. I Realize My Entire World Revolves Around You!
Does the thought of her absence feel like this permanent and irreversible disability? Does the thought of losing her make you feel utterly sick?
If so, you’re certainly lovestruck, but that love may also be very real and authentic. In a healthy relationship, both partners have a sense of independence, but they still very much feel connected and attuned to one another.
So no, your entire world shouldn’t actually revolve around her- but if you two are secure enough in your identities and relationships to enjoy a mature dynamic, this text conveys how much you care about her and value her presence in your life.
#24 Sometimes I Hate That We Have a Long-Distance Relationship
Long-distance relationships can take a significant toll. And while it’s important to remind yourself of your gratitude, it’s also helpful to be honest about your feelings. You don’t want her thinking that you have no problems living apart!
#25 Can I Call You? I Just Want to Hear Your Beautiful Voice
You can go back and forth sending messages all day.
But just a few minutes talking to each other on the phone or Facetime can be infinitely more intimate than a dozen texts.
How to Respond When She Tells You She Misses You
Is her heart beating only for you? Has she allowed herself to be vulnerable enough to let you know that you’re absolutely and undeniably on her mind?
Respond by telling her how much you also miss her: It’s the obvious way to react, so don’t overthink it! Tell her that you feel the same way or reference one of the mentioned ‘miss you’ quotes from above!
Send her a sweet selfie: It’s not the same as a warm embrace or passionate kiss, but a photo of you can help her feel more connected when you’re apart.
Don’t get too hung up on making yourself look perfect- if she really loves you, she’ll just want to see your face!
Solidify when you will see each other next: Anticipating spending time together brings pleasure despite the absence. If she tells you how much she misses you, take the initiative for making the next plan for your future!
When Should You NOT Send ‘I Miss You’ Messages?
There’s a time and place for every kind of text message. You need to know when it’s appropriate to share your emotions and when it’s important to withhold or delay them.
You’ve already told her that you miss her: Yes, it’s sweet to tell a girl that you miss her. But it can be excessive and annoying if you keep telling her. This comes across as clingy and insecure, especially if you’re unsure if she even feels the same way.
You’re telling her that you miss her hoping it will make her feel guilty: Check your motives before you send that text message.
Are you hoping to praise her or reminisce on beautiful memories- or are you hoping she’ll feel guilty about what she’s doing and try to comfort you?
Even if it’s “just a test,” you shouldn’t need to check her loyalty. That’s a sign of a dysfunctional relationship. So, if you have this lingering feeling that she doesn’t actually miss you- or that she doesn’t care about your relationship- all the reassurance in the world still won’t make much of a difference.
Additionally, it’s manipulative to try to make someone miss you or feel guilty for enjoying other activities or relationships. She shouldn’t have to change her life just to appease you.
You’re trying to use missing her as justification for making a mistake: Maybe you messed up, and now she needs space after an argument. Mistakes are normal in any relationship, but you don’t want to act as if you did nothing wrong or expect her to move on right away.
Missing your quotes act as a way to sugarcoat tension. That can come across as invalidating and even spiteful, especially if you made a serious mistake. Instead, it’s more important to be considerate of her needs and give her some time.
You’re no longer together: Maybe your heart beats only for her- and she’s left many empty holes in your life- but if she’s walked away from the relationship, you’re only perpetuating more pain by trying to draw her back in.
The more you try to reach out, the more she will likely withdraw. Instead, do yourself a favor and try to focus on moving on and healing.
Letting her know how much you miss her shows your dedication and commitment to the relationship. After all, it’s vulnerable to express your feelings!
But love requires emotional intimacy, and sharing your emotions is one of the best ways to deepen your connection. Even though she’s only one person, she feels like the most important part of your world. Never miss the opportunity to share how much you care about her!
