Telling a guy that you miss him without sounding clingy or needy can be tricky. To start, it’s important to remember that you don’t need to prove your love or longing for him by constantly telling him how much you miss him. Instead, express your feelings for him in subtle but meaningful ways, such as sending him a text or leaving him a note with your feelings.

You could also surprise him with a special gift or plan a romantic outing to show him how much you care and miss him.
