When you truly miss your man, you may find it difficult to tell him without getting choked up. Remember that your man likes to know that he is missed because it makes him feel important. Instead of leaving him feeling defenseless from feeling like he is the cause of your tears, try telling him in a way that will leave him smiling from ear to ear.

Here are thirty ways of doing so.

  1. Your feet must really be tired because you have been running through my mind all day.
  2. I miss you like an idiot misses the point.
  3. I miss you more than an astronaut misses planet Earth.
  4. If missing you could make me lose calories, I would have died of starvation.
  5. If he is seen as a foodie, say “I miss you more than you miss food”.
  6. I really miss you, but not as much as you missed me. Yeah, I know—I’m pretty awesome!
  7. I’m not sure if I miss you or I miss insulting you.
  8. Admit it. Life would be super boring without me.
  9. I wish I could copy and paste you into my bed.
  10. I miss all five inches of you, if you know what I mean.
  11. I was just having dirty thoughts about you.
  12. Everything’s fine, I’m telling you. My mental images of you and my right hand accompanied me well while you were gone.
  13. There is something wrong with my brain because it can’t stop thinking of you.
  14. Missing you is just like blinking-it’s an automatic response.
  15. Without you in my world, the sun forgets to shine.
  16. Looking at your photos never fails to make me smile.
  17. I’m holding you in my heart, until I can hold you in my arms.
  18. Just letting you know that chocolate doesn’t taste as good whenever you’re gone.
  19. When I’m with you, hours feel like seconds. When we’re apart, days feel like years.
  20. Eight letters. Three words. One regret. I miss you.
  21. Your laughter is my best medicine.
  22. I want to write ‘I miss you!’ on a stone and throw it at your face, so you know how much it hurts to miss you.
  23. If you think missing me is hard, you should try missing you.
  24. You are my addiction. Every time you’re not by my side, I experience withdrawal syndrome.
  25. I wish I were kissing you instead of missing you.
  26. You’re always occupying space in my thoughts. You should pay rent!
  27. Without the sun of my life, I can’t photosynthesize.
  28. You’re always in my impure thoughts.
  29. A day without you is like a day without sunshine.
  30. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, stop and smile because I am thinking of you.
