When you want to make him miss you over text, there are a few things you can do to really make that connect stronger, here is a powerful “overlooked” way to make him miss you and want you more: giving him dopamine hit. Before we get into that, there are some “easy wins” you can do.

First, don’t text him all the time. If you’re always the one texting him first or always responding right away, he’ll get used to it and it won’t be as special. Instead, wait a few hours or even a day before you respond. This will make him wonder what you’re doing and who you’re with, and he’ll start to miss your company.

Another way to make him miss you over text is to send him flirty or cute messages. This will remind him of how much fun he had with you and how good you made him feel.

Finally, don’t be afraid to be a little bit vulnerable in your messages to him. Ask him if he misses you or still texts with other girls, or even ask what he’s doing now that you’re not around.

Understand What Makes Him Miss You First.

The feeling of missing something has been studied for decades and there are a few theories as to what causes it. One theory is that it is the contrast between having something you like and enjoy and not having what you like and enjoy.

For example, you know that summer is hot and winter is cold because you’ve experienced the difference between the two.

With the above in mind, the most powerful tool in our belts is “LET HIM MISS YOU!”

Don’t Over Text Him.

In order to make him miss you, it’s not enough to text him constantly. You need to create the feeling that you’re uninterested in keeping the conversation going. If he texts you first, don’t reply right away and wait a few hours before texting him back.

You want to create the feeling within him to miss you.

Speed of your text reply (understand this important point)

Speed of your text reply is very important because it can either make or break the conversation. For example, if you are texting someone who is in a hurry, they will want to know that you are responding quickly and efficiently.

However, if you want to make him miss you, we suggest you experiment with how fast you reply. Next, we will look at why holding back text messages will make him want you more.

Your Secret Weapon Dopamine.

What is dopamine and how can we use it to make him miss you even more?

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that is released in the brain and creates feelings of pleasure. Dopamine is responsible for regulating movement, emotional responses, and memory. It’s also associated with addiction because it’s involved in the reward system.

When you send a text to your boyfriend/partner/husband, you want to trigger the dopamine hit to reward him. You want to create the feeling of pleasure, almost making him addicted to your text messages.

That’s why it’s important not to over text him. Trigging his dopamine by texting him will help make him miss you, the less you text him the less he’ll get that hit he needs. This is really sneaky stuff.

Three Text Messages Principles You Can Send To Make Him Miss You.

Positive phrases and how we can use them!

Positive phrases are a way to convey positivity in any situation. These phrases can make people feel better about themselves, as well as make them feel better about the event that has occurred.

Example: “Remember the time you taught me how to rock climb?” I love how you take me out of my comfort zone and try new things.

“Just thinking about you, can’t wait to see you later,”

“Had a fantastic time last night. It was great to see you with your friends and the connections you have with others.”

Thoughtful Support and how we can use them!

In conversations, thoughtful messages are used to empathize with others. They can show support, provide reassurance or create understanding. Using these messages can help people feel listened to and understood. They are the messages friends or family members don’t send only the person really close to you.

For example: “Good luck with your interview today! I know you’ll do amazing! I love you!”

“Have a great time this weekend. Can’t wait to see you when you get back.”

Sexual Tention

What is sexual tension in a text and how can we use it?

Sexual tension is when a reader feels excited about the next step of the story. It’s when the writer has created an intimate connection between character and reader. The reader knows that something is going to happen, but doesn’t know what it may be just yet – they’re left on the edge of their seat with anticipation.

Wow, think about that for a second for a man this kind of message will drive him wild with anticipation. He will spend most of the day waiting to see you and believe me when he does the connection will be powerful.
