He Says He Misses Me: What Does It Mean When He Says He Misses You?

“I miss you.” When a guy says he misses you, looks for these 15 signs and you’ll know he really means it.

They all say it, right? “Oh, I miss you, I miss you so much”. And you want to believe it. But is he genuine, or is it just a cheap ploy to get into your pants? You might think it’s impossible to tell, but here are 15 signs that will tell you if he’s being truthful, or just a smooth liar.

Click here to take our quick (and shockingly accurate) “Does He Love You” Quiz right now and figure out whether the man you are with loves you or not…

1. You talk all the time

Does he text you or call you all the time, even when there is no real reason to? Men usually don’t just call you for small talk like women will, so if he’s calling, he either goes straight to the point – if he has one – or he’s just calling to hear your voice and be connected with you, which is sweet and a sign that he probably does miss you.

2. He calls you late at night

We all know what a late-night, possibly drunk phone call means – it’s a booty call! But not necessarily. If he calls you drunk in the middle of the night telling you how much he misses you, maybe even slipping an “I love you” in there, that’s him without a filter. In vino veritas, my dear.

3. He says he wants to see you

There’s a long way from words to actions, and this is where you’ll be able to tell the difference. When he talks about wanting to see you, that’s really nice, but does he follow through, or are you left with just the longing? A man who truly misses you and is dying to see you will actually make time for you.

4. He makes plans

And if he wants to see you and truly misses you, then he’ll make a plan and stick to it, right? Here is where actions absolutely speak louder than words. Is he all talk, or is he ready to put his money where his mouth is and book a ticket?

5. He doesn’t exaggerate

You can generally tell if he’s telling the truth or not based on just how often he expresses that he misses you. Once in a while is okay, but if he’s just pestering you about it all day, then chances are he’s lying to get something. To miss someone is a feeling, and it’s special, and you share it with the other person reasonably.

6. He stalks your social media

Okay, there’s creepy stalking and then there’s cute stalking – he’s in the latter category. It’s not that he’s obsessed with you, but that he’s keeping tabs on you. He’s liking your selfies, wants to know where you’ve been going, and most importantly – with whom. We’re going to talk more about that in a moment.

7. He asks for pics of you

We want to see people we miss, right? So when he asks you for pictures, what he wants is to see your face. You know when you miss someone, so you go looking for pictures, just to catch a glance at them? Imagine how much he must want to see you if he’ll step on his ego and come out and ask you for a pic.

8. He video calls

There’s no real reason to video call someone when you can just text or make a plain phone call, is there? You video call very close friends and people you love and care about, because you miss them. So, if he’s asking to video call, it’s because he wants to see your pretty face, and the way you smile at him. I’ll bet you he’s never video calling his best friend.

9. He’s jealous of your friends and outings

You know what I said about keeping up with your life on social media? Well, he sees all the guys you go out with, that work friend you’re close to, and all the bars you’ve been going to lately. That hand on your waist? He’s clocked it. And he’s super jealous. He won’t say it to your face, mind you; but he’ll make passive-aggressive remarks, or acquire a sudden and mysterious dislike for your male friends.

10. He asks about your personal life

This move is about as subtle as a wrecking ball, but he’ll start asking “casual” questions about your personal life. He’ll motivate it as being “just curious”, or interested in your life. But his real motives are finding out if you’ve been dating, if you’ve been sleeping with other guys, or if you’re in love with someone else, so he can gauge how much of a chance he’s got.

11. He keeps reminding you of shared memories

There’s a saying that goes “Don’t look back, you’re not going that way”. But he has been looking back a lot lately, and you’re right there, in his cherished memories. He’s been reminiscing about the good times together because he misses you, and by asking you if you think about these memories sometimes, what he’s really asking is whether you miss him too.

12. He’s just really happy to see you

Do you remember falling in love and being positively giddy at the thought of seeing your man? Well, that’s how he feels about you now, because he can’t seem to stop smiling whenever he sees you. That ear-to-ear grin says so much, and he probably doesn’t even realize it. All those feelings he has for you are resurfacing and you can see it on his face. No guy is so happy to see someone, unless you’re his best friend who just came back from basic training or something. He misses you.

13. He doesn’t have much interest in going out

He doesn’t seem to be going out much lately, and you know why? It’s because he’s a bit sad. What’s the point of going out if you won’t be there? You’re not with him, so he doesn’t enjoy anything much these days. I’m afraid you’ve got him hooked.

14. He’s angry and frustrated

He sometimes seems very…intense, and you’re not sure why. He seems almost angry, but you’re not sure if with you. Well, can’t you see he is so into you? He’s been trying to show you and you don’t see it, and you’re not there with him and he misses you, and he probably just feels helpless.

15. He asks people about you

Lately, a lot of people have been telling you that he’s been going around asking about you – how you’re doing, who you’re dating, and all sorts of other personal details. If I didn’t know better, I’d say he misses you bad.

    i really hope that my guy really misses me whenever he says so. i will go crazy if he doesn’t feel the same way as i do for him.

  • beverly September 28, 2018, 3:27 pm

    a man could mean several things when he says he misses you. he might be missing your conversation, the closeness of your relationship and so on. whatever the reason is, what we all know is it feels good being missed by someone we love!

  • adrianna September 27, 2018, 5:53 pm

    this is a good read! i like it and i could relate very much. thank you for sharing awesome posts that make women realize their true value and worth.

  • candice September 26, 2018, 6:17 pm

    i really hate it when someone calls me up late at night. but when it is my boyfriend calling, i feel so excited! this really shows that he truly misses me and i am happy that he does!

  • gigi September 25, 2018, 1:48 pm

    if a man seems to be trying hard to remind you of your memories together, that means he really misses you. and only someone serious will remember those fun and wonderful times you spent together.

  • liberty September 24, 2018, 6:58 pm

    my partner is chatting with me a whole lot! i guess this is one very clear way to tell that he misses being around me.

  • connie September 21, 2018, 2:10 pm

    im so glad i was able to catch this post. it’s something new and really good. thank you for sharing you ideas.

  • phoebe September 20, 2018, 4:42 pm

    He asks people about you – this one is tried and tested. if your man does this then he truly misses you and really means it!

  • aivy September 19, 2018, 1:53 pm

    if he asks people about you..that is really huge! i mean, fro some guy to take the effort and not just sticking with technology and all that stuff the social media can do…it’s really something.

  • kyle September 18, 2018, 4:04 pm

    oh well, it is impossible to be 100% sure that a guy is honest when it comes to a lot of things. good thing an article like this exists. i just need to read the signs carefully to know if he really misses me.

  • mariel September 17, 2018, 2:03 pm

    gaaaah! i thought i was losing my mind! thanks for posting this, sometimes i get a bit paranoid about what my bf really wants when he says something. i even sometimes feel he’s doing something wrong whenever he’s really treating me better than usual.

  • jessica September 15, 2018, 6:46 pm

    an ear-to-ear grin? yes, this is always present whenever we see each other. i am confident that my man is serious about me and he really means it whenever he tells me he misses me. saying “i miss you babe” is not just his go-to line to have something that he wanted from me, if you know what i mean. :)

  • autumn September 12, 2018, 7:18 pm

    i miss you so much! i want to see you now! – i heard all these lines before and most of the time, they were not really meant. glad i saw this post i know now how to see if he’s really just full of crap or not.

  • paige September 11, 2018, 5:59 pm

    i can easily tell if a man exaggerates things. i dated someone who always texts me telling me that he misses me almost every hour and for me, it is a little bit annoying. i mean every person is different, this is just in my case.

  • harper September 10, 2018, 1:58 pm

    if he doesn’t only talk about seeing you, but actually doing something about it..it means he really misses you. a man who will go out of his way to see you is for keeps.

  • gretchen September 7, 2018, 11:44 am

    my partner never fails to tell me how he misses me every day. i can still remember when he told me that sharing his feelings with me is his way of letting me know where i actually stand in his life. i know he is genuine and he really means it whenever he says he misses me.

  • arianne September 3, 2018, 12:45 pm

    men aren’t as complicated as women. men are straight forward most of the time. when he says he misses you and wants to see you, he means it and he’ll do anything to be with you.

  • laura August 30, 2018, 4:01 pm

    if a man shows an effort to see you, then he is completely sincere about you. but also be careful.. some guys just say “i miss you” to see how many will fall for that. take note of these signs so you would know if he really means it.

  • paula August 28, 2018, 7:10 pm

    some guys are honest and some are not. if he says he misses you but is not doing anything to make it happen, then he is definitely lying. just my personal opinion.

  • helena August 24, 2018, 6:28 pm

    one thing i love most about my boyfriend is how he makes plans for us. he is good at it. whenever he misses me, he would come up with something just to hang out with me.

  • janina August 23, 2018, 10:25 pm

    i think when a man seems to reminisce a lot says a so much about missing you big time. he won’t be thinking about those times at all if he doesn’t.

  • alex August 22, 2018, 1:04 pm

    i read that men are notorious liars when it comes to romance but i don’t want to believe it. my man is very transparent so i would know if he really means it when he says he misses me.

  • mariz August 21, 2018, 1:15 pm

    when a guy tells you he misses you and you have doubts about his motive, check out this list and you’ll the answer. if he stalks your social media accounts, he sure is missing you and want to see you in any way he can.

  • judy anne August 20, 2018, 2:29 pm

    hmmm..i will keep these in mind so i could correctly decipher what he is trying to say. thank you so much for posting this. i absolutely love it!

  • janela August 17, 2018, 2:39 pm

    i would believe a guy whenever he says he misses me if he is not a player or a total douche. nowadays, it is very hard to tell if guys are serious. but i guess it really depends on what type of a person he is.

  • lianne August 16, 2018, 6:09 pm

    if he initiates conversation with you and tries to reach out to you in every way possible, then you know he’s telling the truth when he says he misses you.

  • janet August 15, 2018, 8:12 pm

    my guy always calls me late at night just to say hello. he just couldn’t sleep without hearing my voice. he really misses me a lot and i am happy about that.

  • francheska August 14, 2018, 1:02 pm

    most men do not express themselves verbally so if you know that your man is one like that, you have to trust that he really does. and you’ll know it without saying it out loud when he texts/calls you in the morning or late at night and even when he’s busy.

  • linda August 13, 2018, 7:50 pm

    i will definitely look for these signs so i would know if he really misses me. i really don’t want to believe all that he is saying. i am happy to found an article like this. very helpful.

  • belinda August 10, 2018, 8:34 pm

    i knew he was not genuine! i hate him so much for lying to me! i never want to see his face again ever!
