Let’s say you are in a long-distance relationship, and he doesn’t answer your phone calls or reply to your texts for a day or two. You would freak out, wouldn’t you? The pain of missing someone you love can drive you crazy. And, what if this pain is compounded by your thought of “Does he miss me too?”, then it can become unbearable. No matter whether you are in a long-distance or new relationship, or have broken up recently, there will be times when you will ask yourself if he misses you and start looking for clues and signs.
Often, men might fail to express their feelings in words, but you can understand them through their actions; well, at least to an extent. In this post, MomJunction tells you about a few signs – some subtle and others obvious – that most men show when they miss their partner.
30 Signs He Misses You
1. He texts you often
If you have been receiving texts from him quite often, it is one of the clear signs he misses you. Regardless of how mundane and random those texts may be, it goes on to show that he is thinking about you and wants to know what’s going on in your life.
2. He always calls you
Do you see multiple missed calls on your screen? And does he find silly reasons to speak to you and listen to your voice? These are clear signs that he misses you.
3. He responds to your texts and calls immediately
Try this each time you send him a text or call him. Observe the time he takes to reply to your text or pick up the call. If the response is instant, bingo! Take it as a clear sign that he misses you badly. But do not jump to conclusions that he has forgotten you if he misses them sometimes.
4. He talks about you
If you learn from your mutual friends that he talks about you or brings your name up in their conversations or even jokes, then take it as a sign that he misses you.
5. He is all over your social media
Does he add likes or view your every social media post and comment on them? Take these as clear signs that you are on his mind, and he misses you. If he goes to the extent of tagging you in memes and posts, you can assure yourself that he misses you badly.
6. He gets jealous
If he shows those subtle signs of jealousy when you are around with another man at a party or social event, it is a clear indication that he misses you.
7. His friends give you hints
If you have broken up, and his friends tell you that he has been talking about the good times he had with you and mending his ways, take it as a sign that he isn’t over you yet and might want you back in his life.
8. He texts or calls you when drunk
If he texts or calls you when drunk, it could mean that he is using alcohol as a means to express his feelings. You could interpret it this way-it gives him the courage to say things he wouldn’t usually say when he is sober.
9. He tells you directly
Well, we all know that this is one of the toughest things to do for a guy. But, if he tells you directly that he misses you, it is the clearest indication that he has been missing you dearly.
10. He asks you for your picture
If he keeps asking you for your picture when either of you is away for a while, it means he wants to feel close to you when you both are away.
11. He keeps the conversation going
If he does everything to keep the conversation going when he calls or texts you, it could mean he wants to be near you.
12. He reaches out to you with no apparent reason
He might just reach out to you to say “hi” or “how are you?” without a specific agenda in mind. If he does this, you could take it as a sign that he holds you dear in his heart.
13. He listens to your favorite songs
He could be playing all the songs on your playlist without realizing it. You could get to know of it once you check his playlist, or your favorite song could be playing in the background while he is talking to you over the phone. This is one of the subtle signs that he misses you.
14. He gives you surprises
Some men believe in expressing their feelings through action. If he sends you a gift or surprises you with an act of love or kindness, it might be his way of showing that you are special and he misses you.
15. He shows up to the same events
Do you bump into him at unexpected places or events, especially those places where he wouldn’t usually frequent? He wants to reconnect and be close to you. Perhaps he is getting the hints from your social media posts or your friends.
16. He brings up the good old days
Does he bring up the good old days you were together, in his conversations? And does he check your old pictures on Facebook or hold on to the souvenirs? Then he might be missing you.
17. He is curious
Is he curious about the things happening in your life? Does he ask you about your day, your job, your pets, and everything that has to do with you? He might be missing you dearly.
18. He tells you about his day
Despite his busy schedule, he takes out time to tell you about his day, the things he did, the people he met, etc. It is a sign that you are important in his life, and he misses you.
19. He makes plans to see you
If he goes the extra mile and makes plans to see you or tells you about his plans for the next time you meet, he is dying to see you.
20. He fights with you
If he ends up arguing with you for the silliest of things or gets frustrated over not being able to meet you, it could be a sign that he misses you.
21. He wears something that you gifted him
Does he still don the t-shirt or the piece of jewelry you gifted him? It is a strong sign that you are still in his mind.
22. He is always happy to see you
Does he get all excited when he sees you? It could be during a chance encounter or a time you have planned. If he gets excited or can’t stop smiling, it is a clear sign that he has been missing you.
23. There are no signs of a new relationship
It has been a while since you guys broke up, and yet there seem to be no signs of him getting into a new relationship. Well, the reason could be that he’s still missing you.
24. He FaceTimes you
Well, this is a clear sign that he isn’t content with just the calls and texts but wants to see you and be as close to you as possible, albeit virtually.
25. He keeps sending you pictures
If he keeps sending you pictures of him and his friends having a good time when he is not around you, it is a sign that he wishes you were there sharing that time with him.
26. He keeps in touch with you even when not expected
Let’s say he is on an important business trip or vacationing with his friends or parents. If he still makes time to reach out to you and let you know how things are, then do not have to worry over whether he is missing you or not.
27. He does your favorite things
Ask his friends, and if they tell you that he watches your favorite movies, listens to your favorite songs, and cooks your favorite food, he has been missing you.
28. He keeps in touch with your family and friends
If you haven’t been together for a while, and yet, he still keeps in touch with your sibling or your close friends, it is a sign that he misses you and hasn’t got over you yet.
29. Your plans matter to him
Does he ask you about your friends or your plans for the future? It is a sure sign you are still close to him. At times, he might want to stay close to you.
30. He gets touchy
Look out for this sign, ladies. If he really misses you, he’ll tend to get intimate when you meet. It could involve putting his hand on your shoulders, hugging you, or holding your hands when talking to you.
So, how many of these signs do you see in your partner? If you haven’t been seeing each other for a while, and you notice these signs, perhaps you could reconsider giving him a second chance. And if you are together, but he has gone away for a while due to business- or family-related reasons, you can rest assured that he’s dying to see you.
