How to Make Your Boyfriend Miss You After a Fight (The 5 Best Tips)
Table of Contents
If you’re in a relationship for long enough, chances are at some point the two of you are going to end up fighting.
Occasional petty arguments are a normal part of any relationship. As long as these fights aren’t frequent, you probably don’t have much to worry about.
However, on the rare occasion that you two do have a falling out, how you handle the situation after the fact is of utmost importance.
That’s why we’ve prepared you a five-step plan. Here’s how to make your boyfriend miss you after a fight.
This step can be difficult because it allows letting go of your pride and admitting that you did something wrong. However, it can be a great catalyst for making him want you back.
If you believe that he was totally in the wrong, think harder. It takes two people for a fight to be a fight, and he was clearly upset with you over something. Step into his shoes and look at the situation from his perspective.
Even if what you did wrong seems silly and insignificant to you (and even if what he did was, in your opinion, worse), it’s still important to admit that it was wrong. And that doesn’t mean being passive aggressive.
Don’t take the easy way out and say, “I’m sorry you were upset by this.” Put the blame on yourself, but don’t go overboard either. A simple, sincere apology is the best way to win back his heart.
2. Go Incognito
After you’ve said your apology and made it clear you care, there’s a good chance he’ll want you back immediately and tell you as much. If so, great! If not, it’s time to make him realize what he’s missing out on.
This doesn’t mean you should be cold or standoffish, but it does mean you shouldn’t initiate any conversations.
If he reaches out to talk to you, respond kindly without a hint of bitterness. However, if you’re used to sending him a good morning and good night text, see what happens when you skip it for a few days.
If you usually call him during his lunch break, resist the temptation. See if he takes the initiative to call you. Even if he doesn’t, there’s a good chance that he’s missing you. There’s no better way to make someone grateful for you than to show him what he could be missing out on.
3. Dress your Best
This method works best if he’s someone you regularly see each day, such as at school or in the workplace. He won’t want to make up with you if you start neglecting your hygiene, so make an effort to do the opposite.
Put on a little more makeup, ditch the jeans in exchange for a nice skirt, and try a new hairstyle. Let him see what he’s missing out on, and definitely don’t let him know that he’s shaken you, even if you’re dying inside.
If you’re dealing with a long distance relationship, this step is a bit trickier (though still possible). Post a flattering selfie on social media if you’re feeling confident, but whatever you do, do not address him directly.
Post an old picture of you two together or a vague caption about missing someone and he will instantly know what you’re up to and will most likely feel pressured by the situation. Men don’t like to feel pressured—they like to make decisions on their own terms.
4. Go out With Friends
Men love a girl who has a social life. For the most part, they don’t enjoy someone who is overly clingy in a relationship. However, when your guy sees you off having fun with your girlfriends, he will surely miss you.
On the contrary, if he sees or hears about you sulking at home, he will suspect you of being clingy, and that’s the last thing you need him thinking when you’re trying to get him to miss you.
If you don’t live in a place where you and your friends might regularly bump into him, post a snapshot of you and the girls having fun on social media.
5. Talk to Him
If you’ve done all the above steps, and he still hasn’t told you he misses you or begged for you to take him back, honesty is your best option. Text him asking to meet up, and tell him in person how you feel.
Say that you miss him deeply and that you wish you could make things right. Try not to act desperate, but make sure he knows you care. Ask him if the two of you can perhaps turn over a new leaf.
If you were the one who originally got mad at him, stress how insignificant the minor grievance he committed now seems to you, and tell him that you shouldn’t have made such a big deal out of it.
If he was the one who originally got upset, stress again that you’re sorry and emphasizes it by telling him what you should have done differently.
There you go—that’s how to make your boyfriend miss you after a fight. You and your boyfriend may be in a row right now, but not to worry—if it’s really meant to be, he will come running back to you, and the tips in this article will only make that outcome even more likely. The most important thing we can tell you is to be genuine at all times.
Don’t resort to passive aggression, pettiness, or jealousy, because he will see through all of those tactics, and they will make him miss you less, not more.
When you’re trying to get him to miss you, it’s important to accentuate all of your positive qualities and make him remember why he fell in love with you in the first place. If you do that, we have no doubt he’ll be begging you for a second chance or a clean slate, and when he does, accept him back with open arms.
