15 Effective Ways to Make Your Boyfriend Miss You Like Crazy

1. Don’t always be available for him.
Obviously, when you’re in love with someone, you want to spend a lot of time with that person. But to create a feeling to miss you, you need to sometimes not be with him. You don’t always have to give up all your time for him. Your boyfriend is not going to miss you if you’re always available. Find things that you can put into yourself. Create your own space and time away from him. While it is important to spend time together to win his heart, it is equally important to give some space so that he’ll realize how special you are and how much he really misses you.

2. Hang out with your friends.
You don’t have to hang out with him all the time. You should also catch up with your friends often. Plan a girls’ night out or a girl’s trip, then share with him some fun moments with your friends. After spending a few days away from him, he may be happy you’re having a good time but he will also become jealous. If he sees how much fun you’re having, he’s going to want to come along on your next adventure. This way, you can also balance out the equation and do something without him which will ultimately make him miss you.

3. Highlight the fun arts of your life using social media.
If you want him to miss you, you can use social media to your advantage. Update your social media feed so he can see all the fun you’re having. Guys are definitely more visual creatures so give him something good to look it and he’ll be hooked, which brings you to the next step. But make sure you do not fabricate fake posts, just be you, be fun, and be authentic.

4. Wait for some time before returning his texts and calls.
Another way to make your boyfriend miss you is by not instantly responding to his texts and calls. Show him that you have another life going around. So, whenever he calls or texts you randomly, make him wait for some time before answering it. This way, he will miss you more than you thought he could be.

5. Find a signature scent that will remind him of you.
Simply, wear your signature scent whenever you meet your boyfriend so that slowly he will start recognizing you with that smell. As much as possible, use the top quality brand of perfume, shampoo, or lotion. Just imagine yourself resting on his shoulder or chest, and leaving behind your beautiful scent on his body, this will leave him thinking about you every time he smells something even faintly similar.

6. Cook a delicious meal for him.
Impress your boyfriend by making home-cooked delicious dishes for him. His taste buds will surely be missing the food you always make for him. If you still don’t know how to cook, then it’s time for you to learn a new skill.

7. Go on a weekend getaway without him.
Anything that doesn’t include him will keep him at bay and leave him wanting for more. Take a weekend off and go by yourself or with friends. Just relax, treat yourself, and enjoy. Once you come back, you can be sure he will be more than glad to see you.

8. Let him go with his friends.
Don’t worry about him enjoying the free time with his friends. Of course, giving him space to enjoy is going to make you look confident and less clingy. He may seem to enjoy it, but eventually, your boyfriend will crave more time with you. So, the next time he tries to come up with excuses to hang out with his friends, let him go. If he wants to go on a boys’ trip, allow him. The more time he is away from you, the more he will realize what he’s missing. He might think his friends are important and deserves his time but he will soon learn that he can’t spend his lifetime with only them, he needs you.

9. Invest in yourself.
Treat yourself to a new makeup look, dress up for him, or get a new haircut. It will leave you attractive and unforgettable in your boyfriend’s eyes and mind even after you leave. He’ll start thinking of you and wanting to be closer to you. This will work especially if you’re getting attention from other guys around you. So, invest in yourself and make yourself feel good to make your guy miss you.

10. Bring back the mystery and suspense.
Try not to share everything you’re thinking or feeling. Rather than letting him get used to your routine, challenge him with new activities and give him more of the fun and positive associations he is enjoying. Remind him of your courting stage where everything was still a mystery between the two of you.

11. Be independent
Getting a little more independent and less reliant on him will make him miss you more. When you stop reaching out to him for the silliest of things, he’ll start to wonder and that, I bet, will be in your favor.

12. Be a jolly girlfriend.
Who would miss a boring girlfriend? If you’re fun to be with and you always bring a smile to your guy, then definitely he will miss you when he doesn’t see you. Your cheerful and charming face will always be in his mind wherever he will go.

13. Make him realize how lucky he is to have you.
Make your guy realize how valuable your worth is. Let him know that you’re one of a kind and losing you will make him regret it big time. If your boyfriend will realize that you’re someone to be treasured and kept for, surely he cannot get you out of his mind.

14. Always be that sweet, loving and caring girlfriend to him. 
Of course, the best thing that will be missed by guys is the extraordinary love and care that their girlfriends are giving them. If you really want your boyfriend to miss you deeply, then make him fall in love with you deeply. Always give him your tender loving care. Make him happy when he’s sad, be at his side when he needs support, nurse him when he’s sick, understand him when he makes mistakes, be faithful to him, and love him for who he really is.

15.  Dress cute whenever you go out with him.

Flatter your man with some of his favorite clothes, make sure they fit tight enough to show off all of your sexy slight curves! But most importantly- feel in what you wear; if not, you’ll regret it later when your boyfriend starts checking out all of the other girls in the room.

Use these clever ways to make your guy miss you and love you more. After all, if he truly loves you, he will miss you every single day.

  1. I don’t know, no offense to anyone who has tried these, but to me it just seems like a bunch of games. I’m too old and tired to be playing games, if someone wants to make the effort to be with me then that’s great, if they don’t want to then whatever.

    After 20 years of a wonderful marriage my husband shattered my heart by telling me he didn’t love me anymore. He lied to the cops and got a domestic violence restraining order against me, which got me kicked out of our house, and then he pretty much moved his new girlfriend in. Turns out he was planning it all behind my back while we were still married.

    Good luck, ladies…I just don’t have the energy to care anymore…

  2. It’s just a matter of time, my friend. You see, my boyfriend was used to be like that too, he didn’t miss me, or at least that looked like

    Just let him go, I left my boyfriend once waiting for me, but I never came, and next day he texed me about how much he misses me, and that he was lookin’ for me

    Don’t worry, the tips you read will be useful, if it worked out with me, it will work out with you 🙂

    Good luck!!

  3. I tried the whole ‘pull away’ thing to make him miss me when he was taking me for granted and after trying to talk things out, and I’m just throwing this out, if he misses you congrats but you might get hurt… My Boyfriend shrugged it off and ignored it and used it as a way to get the week to get drunk, f*** around all week and talking to his female friend.. he left me feeling more empty like he didn’t really care I was there… I’m just saying becareful to try this because you might not get the response you’re hoping for and might get hurt

    • I am in the exact same situation.I feel like my bf doesn’t love nor respect me.I got an opportunity of going through a conversation between his ex and him and I was utterly surprised at how respectful it was.I felt so bad,and I let him know that I feel he does not respect me.The only thing he told me is that I need to be as self-confident as hie ex.Was and am still so dissapointed.I feel like I spent my time loving him and this is what I get back?Trying to heal though😊

  4. I enjoyed this article or I would’ve skipped over it half way through, the grammatical errors are almost too much to take.
    Proofread. Proofread. Proofread.

  5. OMG I’m so sorry maybe he is unprepared for this kind of realationship maybe he’s scared talk to him about it and if he really loves u he’ll speak to u and tell u what’s up:-)

    • My bf only tells me he love me when we are together, always wants to see me but he doesn’t spend for me, call , text, anytime. But he is very jealous. Don’t want me laughing with his friends. He loves showing me off. I ask questions about our relationship he will say that he is scared . Most times he doesn’t reply . He likes taken me to see him family and friends. But i am really confused. Don’t know if he really loves me

  6. I wish he could miss me a little.


    Im always positive at his side. Always happy to see him. Wish he could return that to me too. But he just tease me always. ︶︿︶

      • U say he ‘just needs to change’. …that’s got to be the dumbest statement ever.
        You shouldn’t start or b in a relationship with anyone that you feel u need to change. You can’t make ppl change, and why would you want to. ? If
        your special someonee (bf or gf) isn’t right for u leading u to want to change them. Stop there. No one’s perfect, but if they are honest and authentic and they do or don’t do things that result in you wanting to change them, respectfully end the relationship.
        If you can t accept the way they roll and it’s different it doesn’t match up to what you want a relationship to be: They are obviouslyously not the right fit for you, or you for them.
        Move on and let them find someone who is happy to be with them for all of what they are or are not. You can t find Mr or miss/ms right if your with your Mr/ms wrong
        There’s a lid to fit every saucepan. Go and find someone who is yours, instead of wasting time a d energy choosing an oval lid for a round saucepan and trying to mold or change it into something it never was when you chose it in the first place.
        And don’t look to blame the lid for not fitting or being oval. It is the same shape it was when u chose it knowing you wanted a round shape to give u your perfect fit
        It’s called being accepting, not controlling and life is too short to b anything but honest and happy and kind and fair. A d true to yourself .
        Good luck. X
