When he sees you having an amazing time, he will wish he was there.

5. Wait To Reply

To make a guy miss you wait to respond to his messages. You are a busy, high value person with a lot going on. When he doesn’t hear from you right away he will start to think about you and miss you.

When you do reply, he will be happier to hear from you.

6. Leave Something Behind

A sneaky way to make a guy miss you is to leave something behind, as a reminder. You may want to “drop” an earring on the bed, or leave your lipgloss in his car. Make sure you really don’t care about whatever you left behind, just in case he doesn’t find it.

The “leave behind” is also a good excuse to reach out to him and see him again.

7. Send a Flirty Text

You may want to surprise him with a flirty text to get his mind racing. Guys respond well to messages that are of a sexual nature. You can also send pictures and video to spice things up. Doing this is a great way to get him to miss you.

8. Don’t Be Predictable

In order to make a guy miss you, it is important to mix things up and vary your messages. If you usually text every day, take a day off once in while. Reply back the following day. Act as if nothing has changed.

Having the same routine could cause your guy to lose interest. Mix it up by sending a spontaneous text or making a random phone call or even asking to FaceTime. Your goal is to be a pleasant surprise that brightens his day. This will make him think of you and miss you.

9. Leave Him Wanting More

When you are together always be positive and easy to be with. Open up about some things, yet not about everything. Give a little, don’t give a lot. Take things very slowly as you get to know and trust each other.
