7 Subtle Ways to Make Your Man Miss You
1. Do not contact him excessively: always trying to be in touch with him frequently is annoying. He may appreciate it at the beginning. With time, it lessens his desires for you. Since he knows you are always there waiting at the phone idly. Do not be such a bore, lady!. Texting and calling him unnecessarily.
If your man is used to hearing from you every morning when he just wakes up, you should try to alter it. Going radio silence on him will catch his attention big time. He will be curious to know why you are drifting apart from him.
When he eventually calls, he asks, “lovey-dovey, what happened I have not heard from you in a while?”. This used to be a man that was probably avoiding you like the plague.
2. End the call first: this one catches him off guard. When he calls you or chats you up, be the one to end it first. Men are used to women wanting to talk to them always. If you do the opposite, he scratches his head and begins to think how awesome you are to him.
He sees you like a lady who has a life of her own. The best time to end communication with a man is when you are discussing something he finds really interesting. Then you end the call or chat first. It creates suspense in him.
3. Avoid initiating calls regularly: this simply means that you should not be the first to call in the relationship on a regular basis. Consequently, your man will become complacent. Definitely, not what you want. Calling him first constantly will only give a kiss of death to his missing you.
He will see it as no need trying to reach out to you because you will. So ditch contacting him first. It is when he looks at his wristwatch, and you have not called yet. He will create a compass to find you. Now your man will surely miss you and he will be craving to hear from you.
4. Send him a special gift: this works like magic!. The gift will always bring your thoughts to his mind despite the distance between you too. For instance, you gave him a beautiful bed sheet. Automatically he thinks of you each time he sees the bedsheet. Additionally, when he sleeps on it, he could dream of you. I bet you; you will love to hear what he imagined of you.
5. Reduce your social media usage: stop posting everything happening in your life on Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat, if you want him to miss you. Post at times to show you are happy and having fun. A man loves to be the one to put smiles on your pretty face.
On the contrary, if your updates keep popping up the moment he holds his phone, your man would not feel your absence in his life or miss you. Thus, you either completely stop posting for a while on social media or reduce it. Subsequently, his imagination begins to run wild on what you have been up to. He begins to long for you to be with him.
6. Engage in sexting: men love sexting a lot. They are either hungry or horny. The reality that you are miles apart does not mean you should neglect your sex life. You can set your love afire with just this one move- sexting. Indulge in phone sexting with him.
You can start gradually to make him hunger for you in the bedroom through sexy text messages. Do not get surprised if he shows up at your door post that very weekend to take things to the next level. Sexting will absolutely make your man miss you and he will long for you.
7. Send cute pictures to him: once in a while, try sending him recent photos of you. Not just any picture but absolutely stunning ones. He will love it and begin to imagine other guys are chasing after you. This subtle way will ignite his passion for you, especially those pictures with the inscription “for your eyes only”. It makes him feel lucky to have you in his life.
Nevertheless, only send this kind of picture to a man you really trust. Furthermore, do this when it is comfortable and convenient for you to do so.
