In the world of romance and relationships, people often tend to make the mistake of thinking that men and women want different things and have different expectations. But that isn’t always going to be necessarily the case. And sometimes, it’s all a matter of just trusting your instincts and trying to figure out what you really want out of a relationship. Naturally, you will want to spend a lot of time with your partner. But there will also be some moments wherein you would rather just create some space between the two of you. This is so you have a chance to breathe and be on your own. But it’s also an opportunity for you to figure things out on your own without having to rely on the other. And most importantly, it gives you a chance to miss each other.
But why is it important to miss one another in a relationship? Wouldn’t that be counterintuitive? Well, not necessarily. When you generate a sense of longing in a relationship, it’s going to make your partner become more appreciative of who you are whenever you are together. It’s true when they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder. And you need to capitalize on this if you really want to build on the connection that you share in your relationship together.
That’s precisely what this article is about. It’s how you can make your partner miss you more even when you’re not physically around one another. And how do you do that? It’s through texting. You have to remember that in this modern age, texting is going to play a big role in the communication of your relationship. Smartphones have pretty much-become staples in everyone’s daily life at this point. And you can’t forget that a smartphone is a platform for you to maintain contact with someone in spite of your distance. But it’s not enough that you just text your partner whenever you are apart. It’s important that you are texting him the right things and at the right frequency.
And you shouldn’t think of this as a form of manipulation for your partner. It really is not. Space is going to be a very important aspect of any kind of relationship. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t use the space between the two of you to bring you both closer in the long-term. All it takes is a few carefully crafted text messages and you’ll really be putting yourself on the right path.
1. Support him in his use of space.
If he’s going out with his friends without you, then make him feel supported. If he’s going out of town for a really big business meeting, then wish him luck. Always try to support him instead of bombarding him with so many questions and queries about who he’s with and what he will be doing.
2. Give him praise and adoration.
Never be withholding of praise and adoration for your partner. Don’t be afraid to use texting as a platform for you to tell him just why you’re so attracted to him.
3. Don’t text him for a bit.
Try to not text him for a bit. That’s right. Try not sending him a text message at all. Sometimes, the best way to just make him miss you is to just stop getting into contact with him altogether. A lot of times, really being able to isolate himself with his own thoughts would be really good for him to develop a better appreciation for you.
4. Give him the challenge to work towards.
Try to challenge him once in a while. Remember that guys are always going to want to fight for the love that they have in life. It makes the love more meaningful and valuable. He doesn’t always just want it to be served on a silver platter. That’s why you should challenge him with your texts. Make him feel like he has to earn your love. A message like, “Hey, I’m looking forward to our next date. You better make sure to plan a good one.” This kind of message is very playful in nature but it makes him feel like you need to be someone he takes seriously.
5. Send him a suggestive and provocative text message.
Of course, you always want to be enticing your man in whatever means possible. That’s why you shouldn’t be afraid of getting suggestive and provocative with him whenever you text him. It’s going to give him something to look forward to until you meet each other next. For instance, you can text him something like, “Hey, I can’t wait for when you get home from work today. I’m going to have a surprise ready for you.” That’s a very simple message that will give him a lot of excitement to see you.
