Final Thoughts

I truly hope that the above examples helped you figure out how to say I miss you without saying it. Now, let’s clear some doubts. If you think your partner doesn’t miss you just because they didn’t tell you so, I have to tell you that you’re wrong.

Many of us are not-so-good at expressing our feelings, so when we miss someone, we don’t know how to convert it into words. As Verywell Mind suggests: “It’s possible that they’ve been missing you too and just didn’t know how to communicate that with you or were too fearful to do so.”

However, I’m convinced that your alternative ways to say I miss you will motivate them to do the same! 😄
