10 Psychological Signs Someone Truly Misses You

signs someone misses you

7. They talk about the good old times

Do they reminisce about the past when you guys actually talk or chat? If they often talk about how great your relationship or friendship was, then they are probably trying to remind you of all the good times you had in the past. Why? That’s because they miss you and secretly hope to travel back in time when you were together.

8. They criticize your new partner

Yes, this one’s a given. Your ex would probably never praise your new partner. But if they go out of their way to make snide, sarcastic or cynical remarks about your new beau, then it’s a clear sign that they are jealous and miss you dearly. They criticize your new partner because they are hurt and want you to know it.

9. They still value your gifts

Do they still have all the little gifts and mementos you gave them back in the day? Do they wear the t-shirts or wearables you gifted them when you see them in person or in their social media posts? If they have not yet thrown out your gifts or refuse to give them back, then it means that love still lingers in their heart. This is their way of showing you that they miss you.

10. They openly tell you 

What more signs do you need if they have directly told you that you’re still on their mind? If you feel that they are being honest and they truly do miss you, then believing them won’t be your biggest mistake ever. Studies show that contact between ex romantic partners is mainly influenced by their attachment. So the closer you were with your ex, the more likely they will miss you and tell you about it.

They may even try to reconnect with you or even ask you to meet up. It takes a lot of courage to tell someone openly that you miss them after you’ve parted ways. So whether you choose to reconnect or not, there’s no doubt that they miss being with you.

Do you want more signs to know if they really miss you? Here are some more quick signs to look out for –

  • They imitate and copy your actions, whether online or in the real world
  • They constantly try to meet up with you
  • They respond instantly to your texts
  • They compliment you whenever you interact with them
  • They become emotional or ecstatic when you call or visit them unexpectedly
  • They tell you that something or someone reminded them of you
  • They have a positive, warm and open body language whenever they “bump” into you 
  • They still remember every small detail about you
  • They are focused on you when you’re at mutual social gatherings

So, there you have it!

These are the telltale signs that someone special misses you dearly and wants to reconnect.

But what you want to do about it is all up to you. 

Do you want to give your relationship another chance? Or is knowing that they still miss you good enough?

Relationships are complicated. So it’s best to take your time and consider the pros and cons before jumping to conclusions.

How many of these signs can you identify in your ex or former BFF?
