missing someone you love

Missing someone — and I mean really, really missing someone — is one of the worst feelings, plain and simple.

That person could be gone for one day or a few weeks and it can still feel like an eternity. And let me tell you, when you start to miss someone as soon as they leave, you’ve got it bad.

Deep love like this means a lot of things; you have a more positive outlook on life, you are willing to try new things (as long as your man does, too), and you start thinking about the future, even if the idea growing old together used to freak you out.

Being this connected to a person can also mean that missing them almost feels like a broken heart, which is where these "I miss you"quotes come in handy.
