Looking for some texts to make a man miss you? You’ve come to the right place. If you’re in a long-distance relationship or just want to make sure your man does not stop thinking about you, then keep reading.

We’ve compiled a long list of cute texts that will keep him from losing interest.

Let’s get started…

Some Basic Advice for Text Messages

Even the best text messages won’t be worth much if you do other things to tarnish your long-distance relationship. Backing out of a relationship is in many ways easier when you’re far apart; he doesn’t have to deal with the possibility of running into you anywhere.

This is why it’s important to be even more careful than usual when you’re texting in a long-distance relationship. We’ve discussed texting etiquette in many other articles, but it’s worth bringing up again here as a reminder…

For starters, don’t make it seem as if your world revolves around him. Don’t answer all of his text messages within minutes and don’t always be available whenever he wants to call you.

Not only is this important to do because it means he won’t take you for granted, but it’s important for your own mental and emotional health. You need to have a satisfying life outside of him to be happy as a person.

Be sure you’re also not texting him too much. You get a bit more flexibility than you would in a traditional relationship since more of your communication will be done by text. However, you still probably don’t want to make it a habit of sending him several texts in a row.

If you do, you’ll only smother him with your attention. Give him breathing space and time to answer you. This will show him that, if you’re able to live closer in the future, you won’t be clinging to him the entire time.

Don’t forget to have fun, too! You’re in a relationship because you like the guy. Talking to him shouldn’t feel like a chore.

Yes, a little nervousness and tension is normal. All relationships have their ups and downs…but if your relationship is down more often than it’s up, you might want to re-evaluate it whether it’s right for you.

Texts for Long Distance Relationship

For the right couple, a long distance relationship can work out just right and even be a lot of fun. However, when you spend time apart for that long, either you or your guy can lose interest and even stop texting.

Thankfully, you can use plenty of text messages to make him miss you and stay interested. Flirty texts can make your guy miss you and create a good memory that will help your relationship feel more real and exciting. If you want him to miss you like crazy, these are the best text for your significant partner:

  • “Hey baby, I started thinking about you hours ago and just haven’t stopped. Got time for a little Face Time so I can see that beautiful face?”
  • “Every morning, your text messages remind me that I’m crazy about you and miss you like crazy. You’re an amazing guy and I love you madly.”
  • “Even when I have a rough day, I think I’m the luckiest girl because I have a guy like you in my life. I miss you and love you madly and hope to see you soon!”
  • “Baby, I’m crazy about you and feel bad that I can’t see your smile and kiss your lips more often. But I think you’re worth the wait: true love always is!”
  • “I spend time thinking about you just before I go to sleep every night. Even though it’s just me in bed, I have a good memory of my favorite guy and will wait for you, no matter what.”
  • “Here’s the plan for tonight. First, you and I talk while we eat a shared dinner. Then, we can watch our favorite movie without talking. Then, we dream about each other tonight again. When we get back together like this together, I’m having a lot of fun. Can’t wait to hear back from you.”
  • “Here’s something that might make you smile: a picture of me and the dog! I know you miss her almost as much as you miss me. We’re both crazy about you, so let’s make sure we get together soon, baby.”
  • “Do you know what my favorite words are when I think about you? Desire. Missing you. Crazy about you. Glad you’re in my life. So don’t feel bad, baby. I know I’ll get to see your smile and hear your voice soon. Even when we take time just talking on the phone, you’re still my favorite person.”
  • “Your flirty texts make my life that much better, especially when you send those naughty pics you know I like so much. Maybe tonight I’ll send you one where I’m wearing nothing but a smile. You don’t want to miss that!”
  • “My friends always try to give me their so-called “professional advice” about how we should spend our time together. I realize they’re trying to be helpful, but they forget the little things. Like texting ‘I love you’ in the morning or seeing your smile in video chat when I say something naughty. I’m so lucky you’re my partner: you truly ‘get” us and know how to have fun as a couple!”
  • “Hey, you amazing guy, here’s something sweet you can think about tonight: I love you and miss you all the time and am one happy woman knowing that you’re there, waiting for me.”
  • “Every day with you is a gift, no matter how hard long distance feels sometimes. But, do you realize we’ve been together all this time, having fun with our text message romance, while my best friend already has a new partner? I think that just proves that we’re meant to be. Bet that puts a smile on your face!”
  • “You know the old saying that says ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’? I think it’s true because I miss you all the time. I need you here ASAP, sexy. Let’s make that happen soon.”
  • “I just wanted to let you know that you’re amazing, handsome, funny, and the best man I’ve ever met. I hope you realize that my interest will remain strong, no matter what. You’re worth waiting for, even though I’m missing you something fierce!”
  • “The best texts are those that make you respond with something sweet for your significant other. But if you open the picture I just sent you, you’ll find something more than sweet! Hopefully, that pic gives you something to think about as you lie in bed at night.”
  • “Just a reminder! You’re expressly permitted to feel sad or miss me from time to time. But even though we’re missing each other, just realize that we’ll be together soon and that we’ll kiss each other’s smile very soon. I love you more than I can say in text messages.”
  • “Just wanted to let you know that you’re the best person I know, an amazing partner and that my women friends are jealous of us. Isn’t that a great way to start the day?”
  • “I know you’re working and can’t respond till later, but I just wanted you to know I love you. I hope to see your sweet face ASAP.”

Some Tips for Writing Text Messages That Make Him Miss You

These text messages should make your man miss you and get him to respond without fail. But what if you’re a creative type who wants to write unique text messages for your partner?

If you want to make your partner miss you and send sweet text messages back to you, here are a few tips you can keep in mind. They’ll make him genuinely feel your absence and do what he can to see you again.

Add a Sweet or Sexy Photo

Adding a photo to your text message helps let your guy know what he’s missing. A sweet photo with flirty texts, such as a photo of you and your dog, will make him miss you like crazy.

However, a revealing or somewhat sex photo with flirty texts works even better, depending on your relationship and how it has progressed.

Try a combination of different photos with your flirty texts to make him want you in his life for good. Be funny with your text and let him know you’re a fun person.

Getting him to comment on your photos also ensures that you get a new text from your partner and helps to keep your communication active and exciting.

Vary Up Your Text’s Style

Too many sweet messages may be off-putting to some guys because it might seem like you’re trying too hard. Likewise, too many sexy messages may cause him to comment as well.

The trick here is putting up a few different text styles and keeping him guessing. One message can be funny and silly, such as your favorite cat meme.

Another message can be a sexy photo with a bit of flirt. Flirty texts are such a fun way to make him miss you and ensure he doesn’t stop texting you.

Make Your Guy Feel Special With Your Flirty Texts

You can also make him miss you by making him feel good about himself. Guys love compliments, especially when paired or alternated with flirty texts.

Let him know that you love him, tweak your text messages for his personality, and emphasize how much you miss him. In this way, you can make your man miss you in no time.

Know What He Likes as a Person

If you want to make him miss you, focus your texts on his personality and what he likes as a person. What would make your guy miss you the most? Does he miss your long chats or those passionate nights in bed together?

Focus on these beautiful moments when writing your flirty texts. When you remind him of what you bring to his life, you will make him miss you wildly and get him to your house ASAP.

Even better, focusing on what he likes will drive him crazy thinking about you. He’ll miss you something fierce and might even show up at your house unannounced with a bottle of wine and sexy intentions.

Be Careful With Flirty Texts

While flirty texts can be a fantastic way to make your guy miss you, they do have a downside. You should trust your guy entirely before you send any compromising flirty texts or any photos.

We’re not saying that you can’t trust your guy with flirty text messages. But there’s nothing worse than trying to make him miss you and find out he’s sharing your photos with his buddies.

Even if he’s trying to make his friends jealous of your sexiness, sharing naughty and flirty text messages with others is never a good thing.

Know What Kind of Person He Is When He Shares Your Photos

Honestly, your partner is only likely to share a message with others like this if they’re not a great person. So you need to truly trust your partner and know that they’re not the kind of person to share a naughty message before you send one.

Thankfully, if your guy is genuinely in love with you and wants to remain your partner for a long time, they’re not likely to share these texts.

So play it by ear before putting any pictures on text messages that could be shared on a site online. Once a photo is on a site, it’s hard to get it off again.
