When I Need to Say, "I Miss You."

Updated on August 24, 2011

Missing Someone You Love

Being part of a relationship can be a wonderful experience. However, when speaking about a long-distance relationship, it takes an extra special bond to make the relationship work.

Even so, a long-distance relationship is not all bad, even if you do go several days, weeks or months - at a stretch - without seeing each other. However, because you spend so much time away from each other, it's important for the other to know the longing is mutual.

I fully that you not only miss spouses/partners: you miss friends and extended family members, too, especially when going long stretches of time without seeing them. You miss your children when they've moved away to attend college and when they've moved out to start a family of their own. Even so, the focal point of this lens will be missing your partner because you are separated by geographical distance.

Life can be difficult sometimes because you miss your partner so much but it is the price you pay for loving another person. Even so, the rewards far outweigh the cost.

Come along and take a journey to explore simple ways you can tell your partner that you miss him/her.

You can tell your partner

you miss him

any day of the year.

It doesn't have to be a

special occasion.

An unexpected phone call or simple message left on

an answering machine

does wonders.

If Tomorrow Never Comes... - I'll really miss you.

My mind wanders freely and goes through an onslaught of emotions. I'm the type of person who can just wonder what it would feel like to be in a certain predicament and I can cry.

When you tell your partner that you miss him/her ...

Do you often say the words without realizing you're saying them?

      I miss the closeness we used to share!! I wish we could spend more time together!! I MISS YOU!!

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      I love my precious boyfriend with all my heart and soul... I write him emails and used to send him beautiful cards he says he likes them but I really don't think he does...

      We have been together for 3 years and 4 months and we have had our share of bad times but with time I think we are growing... I love him like I have never loved any other man... All I am missing is waking up next to him every morning but I'm not sure that will ever happen...

    • ineedhug 5 years ago

      umm .. don't let the day pass without telling your partner that you love him/her , because you don't know if you can still awake in the next morning.. cherish every minute of your life ..

    • anonymous 5 years ago

      i miss u so much...i love u day by day..thanks for everything because u always make me smile..i love u...love u

      Every time I'm talking to my boyfriend, I feel all giddy and excited, but when I'm not, my feelings are mixed and even my best friend says I'm ridiculous when it comes to loving him. Either you always love someone or you never did, and sometimes I say I will always love him, but never stop to think in reality. Maybe I will, maybe I won't. Sometimes I feel like I can't live without him, and other times like I can't with him. So I think it just depends on the timing of your decision to say it. But I will choose the left anyway.

      There's not enough time in the world to tell my wife how much I miss her. She has been a necessary to me. Something I can't do without. I love her and I'm in love with her. We've been married for 20 years and 2 months.

    • anonymous 6 years ago

      that is wonderful for me and my boyfriend

    • Anthony Godinho 6 years ago from Ontario, Canada

      Yeah, I guess sometimes it just becomes so mundane that it loses its meaning. It's important to take the time to appreciate one another and tell people we hold close, that we love them before it's too late.

    • happynutritionist 6 years ago

      I am going to take the left side here not because I don't care about my partner, but because just last week we had to spend the night in the emergency room because of his heart issues...and it was there that I realized that even though I think I'm feeling deeply when I say I love him, I'm not...I felt it when I said it that day and want to feel that each time. It is easy to get in habits, and take things for granted when you've been married over 30 years, and I don't want to do that, each day is precious.

    Do you feel every nuance of the words because they resonate from your soul?

        Words are really just the echo of the soul!

      • StellaSingles 6 years ago

        I just come out and say "babe, I miss you." I think it means more to the other person when you say it like this. Plus, me (not being in a long distance relationship) when I say it to my partner, it means more because the distance and time between us isn't that large. I miss them even though its only been a few days or hours since we were together last.

      • dragonsix 6 years ago

        Take the time to tell her that you love her, give her a smile and a hug. You never know what can happen, and if the worst does happen, at least your last words to her is one of love.

      • Philippians468 6 years ago

        words have a special place in my mind. special words have a special place in my heart.

      • Smitty 6 years ago from Arizona

        I love my wife so very much that every time I send her a greeting, it comes from the depth of my heart.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        Sure and I even have proof from all the poetry and goofy homemade cards I gave to him in the past. It does not have to be fancy. Give your loved one a hug and remind them. That is the simplest way to show you care. Go for a walk with the one you care about is another nice way.

        After that last heart attack scare, I am always aware of how fleeting life is and the importance of letting loved ones know everyday how much they mean to you.

      I miss you

      A Simple Poem

      Saying, "I miss you."

      Write a poem telling him/her how much he/she means to you - how much you miss him/her and wish he/she was by your side.

      Print it on special paper, frame it and send it in the mail - without saying anything about it! He/She will receive a wonderful surprise when it arrives. Furthermore, you can read the words to him/her over the phone as he/she reads your framed print.

      If you are no good with coming up with your own words, send a greeting card, whether printed or electronic.

      This is a poem I wrote about missing my partner. We had only been in a relationship for a couple of months - though we had been friends for several years - but we enjoyed spending time with each other. Whether I read him some of the poems I wrote, tickled him until he begged for mercy or acted like a clown to make him laugh, we certainly did - and do - enjoy each other's company.

      Missing You

      Miss your hugs and kisses, too.

      Miss your arms, you know I do.

      Whenever I see you smile

      It makes my life seem so worthwhile.

      In your arms I yearn to be

      'cause you are my reality.

      It's you for whom my spirit longed -

      Why my heart doth sing a song.

      I think of you all thru' the day -

      Can't wait to relax so we can play.

      Miss your hugs and kisses, too

      Miss your arms; oh, yes, I do!

          starting a relationship off long distance is usually the hardest, but if you've been together for a while and then move apart for a while it is a little easier. Never easy, just easier.

        • dragonsix profile image

          I have never had much success with long distance relationships. It always seemed that we drift apart due to our careers. The last time I met a girl in another part of the country, I married her before we spent too much time apart. And it has been 10 wonderful years thus far.

          I must admit that if someone says I miss you or I love you to me everyday, I'd get bored with it. The thing though is that if that someone won't be there anymore, it's the first thing I'll miss! So, yes, say we should tell that special someone how much they mean to us - everyday!

I certainly do wish you all the best and thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for stopping by. It must have been a bittersweet experience...

          Beautiful lens and different ways to let our loved one know that they are missed. With long-distance relationships it can be difficult being apart. I like to use video email every now and then, especially when I'm sending a message to a loved one across the miles. I use Talk Fusion and created a lens on it.

          There are so many I miss. I'm glad I let them know before they left, when I had a chance, to tell them how much I loved them and how much I would be missing them.

          I miss my kids now that they're grown up! I tell them that, too, though with disgression, as I don't want to lay guilt trips on them.

          Wonderful suggestions! I agree that it is extremely important to let loved ones know you miss them and are thinking about them.

          I must agree that an unexpected phone call makes wonders. I have done that a couple of times & my wife is thrilled always.
