60 Other Ways to Say I MISS YOU in English

The expression “I miss you” tends to convey sorrow over the absence of a loved one.

As it is, the expression has a decidedly personal tone and character. Nevertheless, you can find ways to say “I miss you” either without its sorrowful connotation or with an even more dramatic one.

Formal/Professional Ways to Say “I Miss You”

Though it might sound strange, you could say “I miss you” within a formal setting. Here are some alternative formal expressions that can be used to carry a similar message:

  1. “I look forward to seeing you again soon.”
  2. “I’d be delighted to meet with you again.”
  3. “Please don’t hesitate to visit me soon.”
  4. “I hope we can stay in touch.”

As you can see, while still relatable, these sentences are not as “passionate” or “intimate”. They are frequently used when closing a professional letter and still manifest a yearning to maintain contact with a distant individual, though in ways that don’t imply a special type of relationship.

Informal Ways to Say “I Miss You”

Informal ways to say “I miss you” are overwhelmingly numerous. Some examples include:

  1. “I yearn for you.”

These are used in far more personal contexts and circumstances and can be understood by general audiences.

Idiomatic/Slang Ways to Say “I Miss You”

These are expressions where the meaning can be difficult to derive from the literal sense of the words but is understood from the context. Some of them are used within specific social groups. These include:

  1. “You’re always in the back of my head” (“in the back of my head” is another way to say “on my mind.”)
  2. “IMY” (I miss you) or “IMY2” (I miss you, too.) Alternatively, “IMU” (I miss u.)
  3. “Can’t breathe without you” (this doesn’t entail that the person literally has a respiratory impediment due to not being with their loved one, but it’s a metaphorical way to get the point across.)
  4. “I miss you like a hole in the head.”
  5. “You are the peanut butter to my jelly.”
  6. “I miss you like Howard misses Sheldon” (referring to two characters from “The Big Bang Theory” sitcom).
