Missing Someone

Maybe it’s the first time you have been away from your boyfriend, or maybe he frequently has to be away because of his job. Sometimes it feels uncomfortable to miss someone and you wonder how others feel when they’re in the same situation. When you miss someone your mind will drift toward them. As for a boyfriend, you’ll wonder about his day, what he is doing with his time, and if he misses you.

The following article will examine this experience and offer some suggestions on what you can do.

What Happens When You Miss Your Boyfriend?

There is a slew of thoughts and feelings you might go through when you miss someone:

  • You might go to bed wondering if he’ll be thinking about you.
  • Missing someone can be the moment you realize you like someone, it can be a moment of madness, and it can feel lonely.
  • You know you miss someone when you start going through your brain looking for memories.
  • You may ask yourself how long it’s been since you’ve seen them.
  • Sometimes going outside and to the places you’ve been doesn’t help because it just reminds you of them.
  • You may look around your home and find things that remind you of them, or even television shows.

Suggestion: Don’t let yourself get consumed by missing him — try to stay busy. You have a great boyfriend if they don’t leave you in the air hanging. He’ll send you messages throughout the day and check-in with you. He’ll also be nice by letting you know he misses you too.

When you miss someone, it’s okay to admit it. Let the emotions and thoughts go through you. This is a good time to be introspective and do things you don’t normally get the chance to do.

Do you really feel strongly about this person or are you just lonely? Maybe a combination of both? If you’re feeling lonely, this is a good time to reach out to friends and family.
