How to Make Him Cry and Miss You!

I miss you!
I miss you!

You're probably dating a caring, loving and sweet guy that always makes time for you. And he's a man of his words when it comes to texting you, calling you and taking you out. He made you smile when you felt lonely and was there for you always. While this may be a good thing, a little spice won't hurt right? Adding spice can make him love you even more! This can be done by making him miss you because men love the chase it makes them walk through eggshells to get you. We women had a life before them and will have a life after them.

Here are 10 ways on how to make him cry and miss you

1. Stop communicating with him

Men hate it if you're always there for them, they want a woman who has a life and an independent one. If you cling to him, you'll come across as desperate. So when you receive a message from him, feel free to just mark it as read. Don't reply or return his calls or else you'll be easy to get. When on social media, unfollow him and seenzone him he'll miss you.

2. Find a scent that'll remind him of you

This involves either putting enough amount of perfume that the fragrance sticks on an area for minutes or a spraying the perfume in his stuff. Do this discreetly when he left something so that when he comes back, he'll smell your fragrance and will begin to miss you that you'll start going to his mind!

3. Leave things behind

When you leave an object behind, he'll think of you again and will wonder how you're doing. Leave a simple object such as an earring or a necklace. That'll do it.

4. Always leave him craving for more

If you want your boyfriend to keep chasing you, you gotta be mysterious and keep him guessing. This will make him hunt for you more and will be addicted to you.

5. Have fun with other people

Remember your friends and/or his friends that made you happy. Don't always rely on it from him. Make sure he's not with his friends so you'll be able to talk to them and if he is, ignore him. He'll start to think that you're having fun without him and will be jealous.

6. Brag on social media

Show your independence and life on others as he will see this and will miss you even more! Have you been working out or was promoted at a job? Announce it on social media. He'll start to overthink of you and will stalk your social media profiles.

7. Give him a challenge

Men should fight for a woman to prove that he really loves him. Flirt with other guys and show him he's not the only one. That way he'll be even more jealous and will make him shake that he'll compete with the guys. Make sure it's an extra 2-3 guys you're flirting with.

8. Tame his ego

Show him you don't need him and you're not a damsel in distress for him to take care of you. This will show that you're not a woman he can take for granted and he will start to tear up a bit.

make him cry!
make him cry!

9. Have a new look

I'd suggest making your hair curly or having a pedicure will do it. Feel free to post it on Instagram or tweet about your new appearance. He'll see this and will miss you 100%!

10. Love yourself!

This is a no brainer. He'll keep chasing you and will start to miss you each day. And even if you call him your man, never stop doing this because if he really loves you, he'll pursue you. When he starts to cry, don't feel bad about him as his tears are proof that he's in love with you!

  • Nikidoll17
    This isn't spicing things up.. Spicing. Things up is like going someplace new with him or teasing him under the table in a restaurant. What you're describing is something that can really scar a person and give them loads of deep unsettled issues. Plus a guys just going to thing this is how every girl will treat him now. That's not what we want, we don't need any more f*d up guys. We want good guys who don't have this shit done to them.
    The title itself is just terrible 'how to make a guy cry and miss you'. When I first saw it I thought okay maybe it's after a breakup? But then I read he's a sweet good guy and he cares for you but here's how to make him cry and spice things up!
    Firstly let me just say it's good to have your own life and no doubt it's good to have your own friends and go out and stuff but you don't do that to purposely exclude him and make him feel bad. Sure in a healthy relationship the couple sends plenty of time together and still has their individual hobbies and stuff. But cutting off contact? That's messed up. If someone stopped communicating with you, there's an issue you just developed. 2,3, and 4 are good. Smell nice, leave things behind occasionally, leave him wanting more.
    However, showing off on social media to get him jealous? Childish. Flirting with 2-3 guys to get him jealous? This is cheating. Hanging out with other people to make him jealous? That's a no. Tame his ego? Firstly in a relationship there shouldn't even be an ego, if there is then it's not the right one for you. Secondly it's okay to depend on your partner now and then it makes them feel actually needed. If you can do it all yourself, just stay single. Have a new look, sure but do it for him, there's no need to publicize it.

    Lastly loving yourself is great but making him chase you isn't. Why does he need to keep pursuing you and competing when he's already with you? You only pursue something you don't already have. And you should never compete with other people in a relationship. You just put in a good amount of effort to make things work. And finally, the last line 'when he starts to cry, don't feel bad , his tears are proof he loves you'. You sadistic person. If you need to make someone cry to understand they love you then there's really something wrong with you. And you shouldn't feel about it? I wouldn't go about any of these stupid steps. You can tell if someone loves you from their effort and actions. Making someone cry just so you get a 'confirmation of their love' is messed up. And women, please don't do this shit. It's the reason why there aren't many good guys left.

    You are the reason why some men hate women. You are a sadist. You take someone's pain as validation of love when it is truly validation of injury. People don't stay with those who emotionally wound them, especially if that person wounds them ON PURPOSE. Again, sadistic is your unholy badge, earned like the tokens that a serial killer keeps of victims.

    Babygirl_S shared one of the worst pieces of advice one can give.

    One of the most foolish things is to avoid sex until marriage. Sexual comparability is an essential part of any committed relationship. When people get married without learning if they’re sexually compatible, stress, depression, anger, resentment, domestic violence, divorce, and sometimes death are the results.

    A loving, caring, and committed relationship between partners mutually invested in each other’s interests is more likely to be successful and last.

    None of the above selfish manipulations are reasonable or rational. Real women are confident and understand their self-worth such that they don’t need to resort to any of the above immature games to appease their insecurities.

    If you want to lose a good man, feel free to resort to such nonsense. He will move on and find a real woman. You will be alone having sabotaged yourself due to fear that you’re not good enough as you are. You will only have yourself to blame.

    Not sure I understand the logic behind this. Why not just say, "How to make the person you allegedly love miserable so that you can feel good about yourself." About the best you can say about this is that it is mildly sadistic.

    You write, "... don't feel bad about him as his tears are proof that he's in love with you!" Translation: "If he is unhappy and hurting because he misses you, enjoy it because it means how special you are."


    Is it possible that he shows you how much he loves you when he fixes the broken light fixture in your living room? Is it possible he shows you how much he loves you when he holds you in his arms and kisses you? Is it possible that he shows you how much he loves you when he surprises you with flowers? Is it possible he shows you how much he loves you when he laughs at your silly joke? Is it possible that he shows how much he loves you when he listens to you complain about the boss for the umpteenth time?

    The list goes on. Let's be blunt. You don't want a boyfriend, you want a human sacrifice. It's pretty sad. Love is, classically defined, willing the good of the other. You just want him sad and lonely so that you can feel safe and treasured.
    Just for the record, I have cried over my girlfriend. I cried when she put our babies in my arms. I have cried when, back in the day, I thought I had hurt her. When she is out of town and I wake up in the middle of the night and she is not there, in that split second before I realize where she is I get genuinely frightened at the thought that she is not there.

    There is not a minute when either of us leaves for work or has to go on travel or whatever that I don't think about her and worry about her. She is the center of my universe and I cannot imagine my life without her and the very thought of it absolutely terrifies me.

    She is the same with me. Indeed she told me one time that she can't help it but she never takes a deep breath until she sees me at the door.

    THAT is what real love is. What you have outlined is mere manipulation and is the very opposite of real love. People's feelings are not to be played with just to make you feel wanted.

    This will be one of the kinder responses you will get from male responders. Why would you deliberately want to make a man cry? That just sounds sadistic.

    There's nothing wrong with being independent and having a life outside the relationship. To most men, that's attractive and yes, clinginess is a turn-off. But this needs to be about building up positive qualities, not inflicting negative emotion on people.
