Special people come in and out of our lives quickly. Handling the absence can be difficult, especially when you want to send the right signals to the person you like. There’s nothing worse than simply telling the other person you miss them, unless your intentional is to be friends with them.
Stay away from that if you want to date this person. You can still let someone know you would like to see them without being so clingy and obvious. Try these tips to tell your special someone you’ve been thinking a lot about them.
Set Up a Date
Asking someone out on a date is a nice strategy. You don’t have to tell them you miss them. It’ll be implied in asking for the date. You want to let the person know you enjoy their company without coming across as needy. Men don’t like needy women, and women certainly don’t like needy men.
Be simple, concise, and to the point with your date request. You don’t have to say, “I miss you. We should really go out soon for some coffee.” Instead, try something like, “It’s been a while. Would you like to get some coffee on Friday?” You want to be subtle and inviting in your date request. The other person will know if you’re desperate.
Get a Card
If you’re actually in a relationship with someone, you can be a bit closer and personable in your message. Hallmark has some nice cards that do all the talking for you. You can buy a card that tells the other person that things are a little better for you when they’re with you.
Cards are very thoughtful, and people almost always respond well to them. You might even think of a creative way to deliver the card. Do you know where their car is parked? If the weather is nice, you could place the card under their windshield wiper like a police ticket. This is a nice creative way to play a small joke while telling the person that you miss them.
Send Nice Texts
You can’t go overboard when you text the person you miss. If they can’t make time right away to see you, don’t make a big deal out of it. You could simply tell the person that you would be interested in doing something together with them soon. If they seem busy, try to have a nice chat instead.
Make the other person laugh and have them engage in the conversations that you like to have with them. Talk about times you’ve spent together and how something you did recently reminds you of times you spent together. All you have to do is convince them that they miss you, too, and you’re good to go.
It’s natural to want to see someone whose company you enjoy. With people living busy lives, we don’t always have enough time for friends and other intimate people. Telling someone you miss them in the right way will always get positive responses. Maybe they miss you, too, and they just didn’t want to say it.
