Men want to be men, and women want to be with “a man.” But what…
You think about him all the time, but you want to know how to make a man miss you too. There are a couple of things you can do to keep you on his mind.
You know the quote, “absence makes the heart grow fonder?” Well, it’s true. If you want to know how to make a man miss you, give him the space to miss you. But that’s not the only step you can take.
I had the biggest crush on this one guy in high school. I was obsessed with him and couldn’t get him out of my head. And I would even plan it so after school my mom would pick me up down the street, just so I could walk five minutes with him and talk. Yeah, I went a little overboard.
The point is nothing ever happened *obviously*. Why? Because I was literally suffocating him with my presence. I wanted him to think about me and miss me all the time. But I never gave the guy a chance. I was just constantly in his face. I was annoying. And that’s definitely not the message you want to send to him when you’re trying to get him to miss you.[Read: All the reasons why chasing a guy never really helps]

You can go a day without speaking; it’ll be fine. If you don’t like his Instagram post, he’ll survive. Showing your interest is one thing, but you don’t need to chase him down. [Read: What makes a man miss a woman? The art of making him want you]
#4 Stop being so available. How can someone miss you if you’re always around them? See, the trick is not to constantly spend every waking moment with them. Your life should never revolve around someone else. If you’re always available for everything, that’s a red flag for many people.
#5 No, you don’t need to play hard to get. You don’t need to take out your notepad and try to design some master plan to get him to miss you. You don’t even need to play hard to get. If you want him to miss you, you just need to show him you’re living your life and want him to do the same, but with you in it. [Read: When does a man miss you? A guide to make any guy crave for you]
#6 Encourage him to spend his free time without you. Usually, when we like someone, our natural instinct is to try to be around them as much as possible.

#7 Let him text you first. You’re usually the one who texts first, but why? Why not let him think of you and then he’ll make the move to text you? It’s fine to text him first, but it shouldn’t be all the time. Give him the chance to actually make the first move. [Read: What it means when he doesn’t text you first buy always replies]
#8 Don’t expect anything. Here’s the thing, most people feel if they do something kind for someone else or make their intentions known, it’ll be reciprocated. But that’s usually not the case. If you want to do something nice for him, do it. But don’t do it to gain something from the relationship.
#9 Be there for him when he needs your support. If you want a man to see you as a potential partner, he needs to see you as someone he can rely on as a partner. This doesn’t mean you should be running around chasing him and doing everything he asks. But when he really needs your support, be there for him.

#10 Live your life. If you really want to make a man miss you, you need to live your own life. A huge turn off for most people, whether they’re a man or woman, is dependency.

#11 The key is to give space. I said it once, and I’ll say it again. If you really want to make a man miss you, space is the key. Let him live his life, and you’ll be a part of it. But if you try to make his life only about you, it’s not going to work. Show him you’re not interested in controlling his life; rather, you want to be a part of it.[Read: 15 texts to make him think about you, miss you and want you closer]
