Ways to Say I Miss You

Posted on :2013-01-20 in

Being apart can really cause some heartache. No matter if it is a breakup, a vacation, moving away, or anything else that can separate us from someone we love. Sometimes it seems like saying, “I miss you” simply isn’t enough. Here are the Top 10 ways to say I miss you.

 

Top 10 Ways to say I Miss You

 

1. Call Them, Write Them

Yes, this is obvious, but often important words get set aside for later for “some other time”. Nothing in this life is guaranteed, and if you are truly missing someone, it is best to say it now, today. Rather than waiting, be bold, be brave, and pick up the phone or that pen and really say everything you have been meaning to say and never have. Think over your words and really pour your heart into it. Even a simple phone call can really show someone just how much you care. ( Refer : Missing You Quotes )

2. Send a Care Package

Ever saw a little something while you were out shopping that instantly made you think of a loved one? Don’t blow the bank, but buying small trinkets and sending a care package to someone can really show them how much you miss them. You can send them one big gift, or you can gather things over time and send them a box filled with little surprises. You can include practical things for wherever they are (a map, a calling card, a sunhat) as well as sentimental things (a teddy bear, your favorite shirt, and their favorite candy).

 

3. Tap In to Your Artsy Side

If you are really missing that special someone, why not write them a poem or a song? Imagine how flattered you’d be if someone wrote a song and sung it just for you? Get as sappy as you think they will enjoy, but don’t overuse that rhyming dictionary! If you can’t sing or rhyme but can play an instrument, play them a song with it that you made up just for them. Be sure to practice before you perform! ( Refer : Missing You Poems )

 

4. List It All

Write your loved one a 101 things I miss about you list. Write down the obvious things, as well as the little inside jokes you have that only they will appreciate. Don’t just write down a generic list! Take some time and write it properly. Keep a notebook with you, and every time you miss them, think about what triggered the thought. “I miss the way we cook dinner together” may not seem romantic, but listing out all the ways you miss them, even the everyday things really does show them how much you care. Really brave? Make that list 1,001 things!

 

5. Make Them a Mixed Tape

Ok, perhaps that reference is a little 80s, so update that to make them a playlist! Buy individual songs online and put them on CD, or put them on an inexpensive MP3 player and send it their way. Want to really get cheesy? Make the first track a message you record just for them, telling them how much you miss them. ( Refer : I Miss You Messages )

 

6. Hide Notes

Know they are going away? Pack them some loving thoughts by hiding little love notes in their suitcase, briefcase, backpack, pocket, wallet or anywhere else you can slip a note into that they won’t notice until they are gone. Already gone? If you know someone with them, send them a note to hide in your loved ones belongings and keep them guessing on how it got there! ( Refer : I Miss You SMS )

 

7. Declare It

Does the one you miss check Facebook constantly? Do they frequent Craigslist? Do they have a favorite magazine, newspaper or other item they read? It is time to declare just how much you miss them for the entire world to see. Write up something big and bold and post it all over Facebook. Take out an ad in their favorite newspaper declaring just how much you miss them. Whatever it is, make it something impressive to really show them you are missing them bad.

 

8. Write It Out

Keep an “I miss you” journal. Get a small notebook and fill it out every day with your thoughts and feelings. Keep it as light or hot and heavy as they would like, but beware of crossing the line into creepy town. Once the notebook is completely filled out send it to them. Another variation of this is to have a journal you pass back and forth. Write your thoughts and feelings down, send it to them, have them write theirs down and send it back.

9. Send Them Flowers

Flowers are a great way to say I miss you. If you really want to get creative, get a book on the Victorian language of flowers, use flowers to convey your “message” and send it along with the bouquet so that they can decode your floral meanings. Often daisies mean “I miss you”, whereas zinnias convey “thoughts of absent friends”, red peony means “devotion” and a primrose “I can’t live without you”. Find the right bouquet to express all that you are feeling. Even guys like flowers, but if you feel this is too “girly” for them to enjoy, pick something they like and send in its place. For example, instead of flowers you could have their favorite type of food delivered by a local restaurant.

 

10. Show Up

Seriously missing someone? If at all possible why not get up, get out, and show up wherever they are? While this scenario cannot always work (business, war zones, restraining orders) for most situations, one way or another it can. If you really want to surprise them, make a call telling them how much you miss them, right before you show up on their doorstep!

 

There are plenty of ways to really express how much you miss someone. Pick up the phone, send them a package, or do whatever helps you express it. Whatever you choose, do it with your heart and it is sure to be appreciated and get the message across.
