Sometimes it can be difficult to convey an idea or emotion through messages. In a face-to-face conversation, you can read facial expressions, see body language, and hear the intonation of the voice. All this helps you to interpret the words that your other half is trying to share with you.
With messages, the content can quickly be misinterpreted, especially when the conversation is between a man and a woman. We try to read between the lines when, sometimes, the words are rather clear. Or, the meaning of the text can be misunderstood because of the lack of punctuation or spelling errors.
The truth is that the messages lack emotion and depth. If you have trouble deciphering the text messages sent by your partner, do not worry, you are not alone! To help you read and understand the messages of this man who likes you or your ex, we have prepared a list of the most common text messages that a boy sends to a girl when she misses him.
The messages that prove that he thinks of you
1. Hi, you!
That this message is sent by an ex who does not understand that your relationship is over, by a guy to whom you are not interested or by a man you are in love with, he always disappoints. Well, yeah! What can it mean? One thing is certain: you miss him!
He has not found anything else to send you (perhaps for lack of inspiration or shyness) but he hopes to provoke a reaction from you. In this way, he is looking for you to be the one who starts the conversation. Unfortunately, what this man does not understand is that most of the time, this message has the opposite effect.
2. Are you there?
Here is another short text and not really clear. If this message was sent to you by a man you have not seen for some time (a few days, months or even years), he is definitely looking for your attention. The sense of urgency that this message lets me glimpse means either that this man is in a difficult place and that he needs you, or that he drank too much and wants to see you there. right now.
Your first thought will surely be: “He is completely drunk and he only wants se x”. Still, it is more likely that he drank to forget you and alcohol gave him the courage to respond to his primitive instincts: contact you! You miss him, no doubt.
3. I was looking at our pictures and this one made me smile
When we’re bored, what do we do? We look at old photos on our phone! We remember the good times and the people who bring joy to our lives. So when you receive such messages, it may mean two things: either your boyfriend gets bored and sent you this picture to make you smile or you miss your ex and he tries to show you how much you have a good time together.
For him, it may seem completely insignificant yet, for you, it can be rather terrifying. Indeed, instead of imagining someone who is bored, you see him spending hours looking at pictures of you and it gives you chills.
4. Do you remember this outing that was done some time ago?
In trying to push you to remember a past event, he tries to show you that he misses your presence. The reminiscence of good old days is his way of telling you that his heart and mind are always occupied by you. In this case, it will surely speak of an insignificant event like the time you found a sexy t-shirt for two sous.
This will only be a pretext to remind you of the laughter you had together. He tries to test the ground: is there an opening? Can you get back together? Even if this text message was not sent to you, for example, the man who sent you this, can not wait to see you again to share new laughs.
5. I thought about you all day
There are not 36 ways to understand this: you miss him. There is no need to read between the lines, it is clear as the day. Whether an ex or a suitor, he is not ashamed to confess his feelings. There is not much to do when you receive this kind of texting. You may feel flattered, but what to say?
Thank you? I miss you too? Here, everything depends on who sends you this message. Anyway, if it’s an ex, do not give him false hopes: do not answer!
6. I just wanted to say “cuckoo”
It’s pretty cute, unless someone who is obsessed with you sends it to you. It’s a simple way to tell you that he thought of you during his day at work (or on vacation). It’s not terrifying, dangerous, or hopeless. Even if you miss him a lot, he tried to control his impulses and to send you this simple text message.
He understands perfectly how this game works and found the exact words to make you smile, without expecting anything in return. If this message was sent by an ex, it surely means that a certain period of silence has passed and he is trying to renew contact. Still, you can not blame him for sending such cute messages.
7. I miss you
It’s hard to make it clear: he’s honest with you and looking to make contact. Whether it’s a cafe via FaceTime or a Skype conversation, he just needs to see you and hear your voice. He’s not sure what you’re going to say to that, so he’s decided to be honest, hoping to attract some sympathy. Be nice!
8. I heard someone laughing today and I felt like I was seeing you
Any man who sends you that, think of you. Whether it’s a suitor, a boyfriend or an ex, your presence is like a drug for that person. A person who is not interested in you, will not notice such details unless you have a hyena laugh (!).
9. I just ate at this restaurant you love
Two types of men can send you this message: a guy you want to forget or someone trying to conquer you. Whatever the case, he tries to make you jealous. In this way, he seeks to engender other feelings in you, such as curiosity (“with whom is he there?”).
In trying to titillate your interest, he simply wanted to tell you that he was at a place that reminded him of your presence. He hopes you’ll be able to read between the lines and understand that he thought so much of you that it led him to go to this restaurant. Finally, it was just an excuse to tell you that you miss him!
10. It’s really cold tonight
Depending on the sender of this text, you will react in different ways. But, anyway, you miss him. If you receive this message from a man you have just met, it shows that he can not help but think of you. With these few words, he hopes to start a conversation that will last all night.
If you receive this text from a man with whom you have been for a while, it surely means “I’m cold, come warm me!”. But, if this message was sent by an ex, it means he feels lonely. He probably does not know what to say but he feels the need to say something: he hopes to push you to the conversation.
It is hoped that these explanations have allowed you to better understand the messages your ex or your suitor is sending you. Now, when you receive these texts, you will know what to expect and how to respond.
