As Shakespeare put it in Romeo and Juliet, “Parting is such sweet sorrow”. It hurts to have to leave our men when we have to go on with our lives instead of spending all our time with them.
We go into funks when we can’t see our men. Sad songs become relevant to our lives. Missing your guy is normal and it puts a damper on all our lives. We think about them all the time when they’re not around.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, that’s for sure. But, sometimes we need to do things to get our men’s hearts to grow fonder and want us back around. We want our men to miss us, do we not?
There are things we can do to get their hearts to pine for us. You just need to put in a little work. Trust me, it will be worth it in the end.
How to make him miss you by using a perfume
If there’s one thing that reminds a man of his special lady, it’s her lingering scent. Whether it is on his clothes or on his pillow, he will inhale and immediately think of you. This is why a signature scent is so important.
You don’t want to wear something overpowering and you don’t want a cheap perfume that will clog the senses. When you choose a perfume, make sure it works with your body chemistry.
A subtle, seductive fragrance is what he likes. Some examples would be ‘Black Opium’ by Yves St. Laurent, ‘Heure Exquise’ by Annick Goutal, or even ‘J’adore’ by Christian Dior.
Another key thing to remember is your man’s favorite scent. Does he like floral scents on you or does he like fruity? Maybe he likes something that reminds him of the ocean. Pay attention to these details.
Your scent will be all that’s left when you leave to go home or go to work. It will permeate through his nostrils and flood his subconscious with sweet, sexy memories of when you were there in the flesh.
Leave little notes where he can find them
Men like to know that they are on our minds. That being said, leaving him a little note will do just that.
A short, sweet, simple note will be all that it takes to get him to think of you. It doesn’t need to be a long letter or a sonnet. He needs to know that you’re thinking of him. Men are simple that way.
When you are at his place, write a little note saying something along the lines of “I love your smile” or “Have a great day, baby!” and it will stay on his mind for the rest of the day.
Make sure that you put it in a place where he will see it immediately, like his dresser, his fridge, or even in his car. He will love you for it and he will eventually miss you.
Keep your social life active
Even when you are dating, the need for a girl’s night out is still there. While you can’t shun your friends in order to focus your attention on your boyfriend, you and he also need some time apart.
Men love it when they get their space. It’s plain and simple. They don’t want to be chained to you 24/7. Again, absence makes the heart grow fonder.
See your friends on a regular basis and make plans without him. Enjoy yourself and be happy. He will miss you when you’re not around, but he will also appreciate some time to himself. Also, you deserve time to yourself as well. Relationships should not be the life sentence it’s always made out to be.
Men do notice when we don’t spend as much time with them as they crave, and they will pine for us and want us around. Hanging out with your friends will do just that.
Avoid incessant texting
As much as our men love to hear from us, they don’t like to get a screen full of messages from us throughout the day. Not only can it be annoying, but it might interrupt something important at work for him. He can’t have his phone glued to him all the time.
If you send a text, just relax and go about your business until he replies. There’s no need to take it any further. Let him go about his day and do what he needs to do. You’re still on his mind, so you don’t need to worry about him forgetting about you.
This is also part of giving him his space. It helps him relax and it also tells him that you trust him. Incessant texting is a sign of insecurity and men can pick that up quite easily. Insecurity can be a turn-off as well, so you need to be careful with your communication.
He will text you back…maybe not right away, but he will eventually. This space created will get him to miss you more than if you overloaded his phone with messages. A man will always respect patience and trust.
Don’t rush to return his calls or reply to his messages
Communication is a double-edged sword in a way. While guys want to be the center of our universe, we shouldn’t always cater to them that way.
It gets them too dependent on our behaviors. They need to know they’re important, but that we have other important parts of our lives as well.
So, when he calls you or sends you a text, don’t reply right away. Quick replies show him you’re desperate for his attention and he will not like that. When you take your time, though, he will feel a sense of loneliness and will begin to miss hearing from you.
If you want him to miss you, take it slow and wait before you reply. He will still be there, pining for you. You want your man to be the puppy who misses you when you go away.
You don’t want him to be indifferent towards you and you definitely, don’t want him to be annoyed with you. Take a deep breath and take your time.
Men are capable of missing us just as much as we miss them when we are away. By keeping our distance and taking time for ourselves, our men will realize they feel lonely without us and will miss us terribly. You will feel glad when they do.
