11 Things To Say To Your Ex When He Says He Misses You So Bad

by Michelle Devani

Has your ex told you that he misses you?

Are you wondering what is the right thing to say in this situation? Well, the truth is... that depends on how you feel. 

Our guide is here to help though. It features 21 ideas for things to say to your ex when he says he misses you. This will help get the conversation on a suitable path for you. 

However, before we begin exploring these suggestions, I have a quick story that I think you’ll find very interesting.

Recently, I discovered a compelling online tool that can track other people’s communications. 

This powerful online communications tracking device can reveal a wealth of information about the people closest to you, provided you know their most basic contact details. 

Once you’ve input their details into this tool, it can show you: 

  • who they have been getting in contact with most frequently;
  • what apps and internet services they’re using;
  • what alternative contact information they have registered;
  • a hell of a lot more.  

This tool could clarify how your ex actually feels about you when they get back in contact. Sadly, it’s common for them to be dishonest about their feelings and intentions in this situation. 

It’s 100% completely and utterly discreet, so there’s no way of him finding out he’s being tracked. It could be the key to patching things up, if that’s what you want. 

Anyway, with that said, let’s get on with my list of things to say when your ex says he misses you.
