Missing Your Boyfriend: How to Feel Better When You Miss Your Guy

Updated on January 1, 2017

What can you when you are missing your boyfriend terribly? How do you stop being sad when you haven't seen your sweetie for what seems like forever? Whether your boyfriend travels a lot for work or whether you are in a long-distance relationship, being apart isn't easy. Read this article and find out how you can soothe the heartbreaking pain of being away from someone you love so much.


1. Send Your Boyfriend a Sweet Text

Send your emotions out to your boyfriend in a sweet text, and let him know how much you are missing him. Write something cute and end your mushy line with a cute emoji.

If you can't think of anything to write, just send an emoji by itself. He will reply back in kind. Even short and wordless conversations like these will be a soothing balm for your aching heart.


2. Hang Out With Your Girlfriends

Hang out with your girlfriends; that will take your mind off how much you're missing him. Call up some of your besties and hang out together.

Go out for a coffee, go shopping, go to the movies, or just have a sleepover with your friends. The laughs, the smiles, and the gossip will help put a stop to the anxiety about being away from your guy.


3. Make a Quick Call to Say Hi

Missing him too much? Put your anxiety to rest by giving him a quick call. Be honest and tell him that you called just because you were missing him.

Guys are typically not the masters of two-minute mushy talks, but listening to his voice even for a short time will surely bring a smile to your face.


4. Channel Your Emotions Into Something Creative

Emotional highs and lows are known to bring out the best when it comes to creativity. When you miss your boyfriend terribly, channel your emotional ups and downs by doing something creative.

The best way to go about this is to focus on a hobby like playing the guitar, painting, writing, dancing, or sketching. Your intense mood will bring out the best in you. Give a fun twist to this exercise by recording a video of your creative outburst and uploading it on YouTube for your boyfriend to see.


5. Remind Yourself of the Moment When You Will Meet Your Boyfriend Again

Lighten up the sad expression on your face by thinking about the next time you will see your boyfriend. A little fantasy will help you convert the frustration of missing him into beautiful thoughts.

This is helpful especially if you are in a long-distance relationship. From planning dates to cuddling afterwards, thinking about the time you will finally see your boyfriend again will send you into a beautiful trance.


6. Talk to a Best Friend or Someone in Your Family

Sometimes, all a crying heart needs is an outlet. If you are feeling low and depressed because you are missing your boyfriend a bit too much, talk to your best friend. Better yet, if you are close to your sister or someone else in your family, talk to them.

Talking won't change the fact that you are away from your boyfriend. But simply speaking to someone who can understand your emotions will instantly make you feel lighter. The reassuring words of your best friend will put you at ease and help you go on about your normal routine.

Not many things in life can match up to the comforting feeling of a warm hug. If you are missing your boyfriend a bit too much, give the biggest and fluffiest pillow on your bed a tight hug. Close your eyes and imagine that you are hugging your boyfriend.

Hold on to the hug for a few seconds and take a few deep breaths. This cute exercise will instantly calm you down and help you control your urge to meet your boyfriend.


8. Keep Yourself Busy

The easiest way to stop yourself from spiraling down into the frustration of missing your boyfriend constantly is to keep yourself busy. Here are a few ideas:

  • Do random things like ironing or fixing up your messy closet.
  • Go out and shop for groceries at the supermarket.
  • Work on the next presentation you have to make at the office.
  • If you are a student, pull out the books and get some homework done.

Find something to do and just keep yourself busy. Apart from being the most productive solution to your problem, this will help you catch up on stuff that you have been procrastinating about for a long time.


9. Write Handwritten Letters to Your Boyfriend

If you are missing your partner in a long-distance relationship, one of the best ways to channel your emotions without making a fuss about it is to write letters by hand.

Writing a love letter by hand is one of the most emotionally pacifying things you will ever experience. Pull out all your emotions from the deepest corner of your heart and write touching messages to your long distance partner.

Tell your boyfriend to reply by writing a letter too. These romantic letters will be a sweet keepsake and reading them will bring a smile to your face.

10. Avoid Looking at Pictures of the Two of You Together

Swiping through pictures of yourself and your boyfriend on your iPad is not going to help your cause. It will push you deeper into the emotional turmoil you are already in.

If you must, flip through a couple of pictures quickly. Don't keep gazing at them, or else you could be lost in the heartbreaking sadness of not having your guy by your side.

11. Find More Ways to Keep in Touch: Download Apps

Fast forward to the twenty-first century if you are still stuck waiting for your boyfriend to call you or send you a text. Download apps like WhatsApp and WeChat on your phone. Use them along with messages on Facebook and Twitter to give your boyfriend a sweet poke every now and then.

Having the option to connect with him at the touch of a button will always keep you smiling. Both of you will easily be able to keep in touch no matter where you are.

12. Be Happy About Missing Your Boyfriend: Love is Supposed to Be Like That

One mistake that girls make in a relationship is trying hard to fight the feeling of attachment. Don't see yourself as being clingy or needy if you miss your boyfriend. On the contrary, feel good about your relationship, and be happy about the fact that the puppy love between you both is still thriving.

Missing your guy is a completely natural thing, and there is no reason why you should be embarrassed about it.

      I spend a lot of time with my boyfriend and I spend the night at his house very often. I spend so much time at his house that my family asks me if I'm going to move in with him. It just that when I leave to go to work, it feels like forever before I can see him again. It sounds super clingy because I know I'm going back home to him in the evening but it still stings. I miss him a lot. I'm currently at work missing him.

      My boyfriend has just left and even though we only live an hour and 40 mins from each other I only get to see him every second week as he sees his daughter the week we don't meet. I already miss him so much my heart is sore and I can't stop crying we have had such a lovely weekend together I just didn't want it to end. Any tips on how to deal with missing him so much would be much appreciated I don't want to spend the next 2 weeks with a ball of anxiety in me.
