Because it is quite important to express your feelings using the right words so that the other person really feels good about it. So you wanna makes someone's day? Well let's look at the phrases here. The very first phrase that I have for you, which can be used in a very friendly manner is, I can't wait to see you again. So this can be used for anyone and everyone because it's a very friendly phrase. Now this can be used for someone with whom you have spent a great time. So for example, your aunt was visiting you and you had a great time with her. You’ll went to different places and ate at the best of restaurants and yes you did have a gala time with her. And now she's gone back to her hometown and you are missing her. So it's time to express your feelings, it's important to show your love towards her. So you can use this phrase, I can’t wait to see you again. The next thing that you gotta do is, take out your phone and text her using this phrase. I can't wait to see you again aunt, right? Let’s have a look at another expression that you can use in a friendly manner which is, I wish you were here. Now you know at times, there are things that you do and then you start thinking of this person that you used to do these things with. So like for example, you go for movies, okay. You go for movies and for these same kind of movies, you used to go with your friend who no longer lives around you, who has probably moved to a different country altogether and now when you go for movies, you miss that person. So it's important to express that to him or her. so you can say, " hey you know what, I'm at the movies right now and I wish you were here too." that's how you will use this phrase, right? Now let's have a look at the third expression which is, I have been thinking of you and it made me smile. Now again this expression can be used in a friendly manner and you can use this when you are really thinking of someone. There are days when you wake up and you really miss a person, okay. So probably it's your friend, probably they are your grandparents who are just visiting you and now they are back home. So you are like, you are missing them. How would you express that love to them? You gonna say I have been thinking of you and it made me smile. So you know even the thought of that person just makes you smile, right? So it's important to express that in a correct way. So use this phrase the next time you are thinking of someone and just makes you smile. The next phrase that I have for you is, you have been on my mind, hmm... now this phrase can be used in a very romantic way. So remember the first three phrases can be used in a friendly manner and the next two phrases here can be used in a romantic way. So you have had a beautiful, amazing date. Okay so in the evening you went out, you took a girl out on a date and you had a great time. And now that you are back home, you are missing this girl. Well if you are missing her, it means you really liked her. And now that you are thinking about her, why don't you even express it to her? So take your phone out. Either you text or you just call and say that you have been on my mind. So the way you will use this expression is for example, I had such a great time this evening with you and since then you have been on my mind. so here you expressing that yes you had a wonderful evening, it was absolutely an amazing date and now that you are back home, she's been on your mind, right? So you can express this in a very romantic manner. Let’s have a look at another expression, which is, I crave for you. Now I crave for you is when you are wanting someone. Again there are certain things that you do in life and if your partner is not along with you, then you feel sad. You start missing your partner, don't you? So here you are really wanting that person. So again in a very romantic manner, you can use the phrase, I crave for you. So rather than just sticking to the old, I miss you, you can say I crave for you, right? Let’s have a look at another expression which is, I miss so much that it hurts. Where does it hurt? Well of course your heart hurts. Well this expression can be used in a very dramatic way. So if you love too much of drama in your life, you like to use phrases which are way too dramatic, then use this phrase, I miss you so much, that it hurts. You know when you really miss someone, okay you are craving for that person and you are thinking about that person and it just hurts you, like you can feel the pain in your heart. Happens right? It happens with me, yes it does. So if it happens with you, it really hurts and as I said, that if you love too much of drama in your life, then use this expression. That person for whom you are using this expression would feel great. So I miss you so much, that it hurts. The last expression that I have for you here is, very funny. All I do is think of you, your absence is more irritating than your presence. Again you can use this with your friends, with your partners. So use it in a very sarcastic manner. It's like when these people are around you, you feel really annoyed, you can't stand them, arrghh. You are so annoying. I can't stand you. But when they are gone, when they are away from you, you feel that pain. Yes, you just feel so in complete and you start missing them. So convey it to them. Yes I know there are people who are so annoying, who are so irritating but when they are gone, you start missing them. So you can say that you know, these days since the time you have gone, all I do is think of you. So again you are conveying that you know my morning starts with your thought. So all I do is think of you, your absence is more irritating than your presence. So it's kind of indicating that yes you are missing this person way too much. Right so this phrase can be used in a very comic way. So go ahead use it. So these are some seven phrases that you can use for people and please use them because it feels great when someone would text you or just call you and use these phrases. Yes it does.
