Having certain feelings for someone you haven’t really met can be super confusing. Some might even call it madness, or some weird form of love.
But it’s not actually so strange – if you are reading this post then there is a chance that you, too, feel something for someone you’ve never met, and are looking for answers.
If so, here are 16 reasons why you can miss someone who isn’t in your life:
1) You have a strong connection with them
Have you met this person online? Have you talked to them for hours on the phone? Have you spent days and weeks getting to know all of their habits, likes and dislikes? If so, then most likely, you are missing them.
It’s so easy to build a strong connection with someone online – there is no physical proximity, which means that communication can be 100% honest.
When both parties have their guard down and are totally open with each other, it’s hard not to feel like you’ve known each other forever. The same applies to phone communication – since you can’t see the person, you are forced to focus on their voice and personality.
A strong connection like this can easily lead to some form of love, if you’re not careful.
2) You have a shared history
There’s a reason why people like to say that, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”
Missing someone is a physical feeling, and it can rarely be faked.
If you haven’t spoken to someone in a while, one day you will start missing them. The feeling will hit you like a ton of bricks.
Sometimes, all it takes is time apart to make you miss someone, because when you’ve known someone for a long time, there are just so many great memories. Any pleasant memories you have of the person you miss will probably make it more difficult to move on.
A shared history allows you to build up a bond over time, and looking back on memories makes the person you miss feel more real.
Missing someone who hasn’t been around in a while isn’t the same as missing an old friend; it’s an altogether different feeling that can be hard to explain – but if you’re missing someone like this, there is hope for love.
3) A gifted advisor can give clarity
If you’re feeling absolutely confused about why you are missing someone you haven’t met, perhaps it’s time to get some professional help.
A gifted advisor can tell you where your feelings are coming from, and will help bring clarity to the situation.
They will not only be able to tell you if your connection with this person is real or not, but they will also focus on finding solutions for how to deal with your missing feelings.
Why am I so confident in mentioning this option?
Because I’ve personally used a gifted advisor from Psychic Source to help me move on from the confusing feelings I had for someone who wasn’t in my life.
I won’t go into details about how it worked for me, but I will say that I found my connection to this person was totally false, and the only advice that helped were methods of getting closure. They certainly said the right words in order to get me to feel better and move on.
So, if you want to find answers, and I mean really feel it, get in touch with your gifted advisor.

4) You have a lot in common with them
It’s hard not to have some kind of common ground with people.
If two individuals have a lot in common, trust me, they can fall for each other pretty easily. Never underestimate the power of art and music – people who share the same tastes are much more likely to get on well with each other.
If you’ve known this person for a long time, it’s almost impossible to separate yourself completely from them – you might still notice tiny quirks that they do that only you know about.
If you feel like this is the case, there might be a chance for a connection that you’ve never dreamed of.
There are always things that you share with this person, and if you’ve known them for a long time, there will probably be many of them.
There is no way that two people can have so much in common and not fall in love.
5) You are simply confused about your feelings
We’ve all been there… not knowing whether our feelings are one-sided, or whether there is really something behind them.
Sometimes a person may not seem to care about you, but in actual fact, they’ve been enjoying the time of knowing you – even if it’s only through your text exchanges or calls.
It takes time to figure out if someone is interested in you or not, and when you’re dealing with people who aren’t in your life, it becomes harder and harder to figure out their feelings.
With a person who isn’t in your life physically, it’s hard to see them as being interested… or at least that’s how it feels.
Feeling unsure of your feelings can be difficult. If you’re missing someone, I’d recommend that you get some answers – it’s not healthy to have unanswered questions about your feelings.
6) You feel the need to protect them
Protecting someone you care is a very strong feeling. It’s a feeling which can easily be mistaken for love.
The truth is, you might not even be protecting them at all – you might just be looking out for their safety.
Someone who is not in your life will always have the power to hurt you, so it’s best not to trust them too much.
This type of protection may have nothing to do with love, but it can certainly feel like that – and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Whatever the reason, it’s natural to want to protect someone who means a lot to you.
You would do anything to make sure that they feel happy and safe. This feeling can make it really hard for you to let go of someone, even if you know that things aren’t going to work out.
If you’re missing someone, then with time, your intuition will tell you exactly what’s best for both of you. You might feel like you have to protect them, but in actual fact you’re protecting yourself.
The best way to move on is not to approach the situation with emotions that are too high or low. When you are dealing with feelings, it’s a good idea to be neutral.
7) You are lonely and need a friend
It’s perfectly normal to feel lonely from time to time, and many people have this feeling for extended periods of time.
If you are feeling lonely, the feeling of loneliness might not subside easily. When you can’t find anyone to talk to or hang out with, it’s normal to feel worse. That’s when you think of this person who you’ve only talked to online and felt like they’ve really listened to you when nobody else did in your life.
When there are no potential friends who are free and available, it’s very easy to miss someone.
One of the most common ways of dealing with loneliness is by looking for love. You make an effort to get closer to someone who might be able to fill the hole in your heart – which could be the reason you’ve been missing this person.
Love is often the main culprit behind loneliness; after all, the butterflies in your stomach are usually signs that you have fallen in love. It’s hard to tell if you’re lonely and missing someone because of this feeling, or if you are actually in love.
8) You believe that they are your soulmate
You’ve probably heard of soulmates – and you might even know people who say that they have found their perfect match.
If you believe that a person is your soulmate, it’s hard for you to move on because you feel like there is nothing else out there for you besides this person.
It’s easy to get so caught up in the idea of someone being your “soulmate” – especially when they are not in your life. If you’re missing someone and believe them to be your soulmate, the best way to get over them is to find out if they are the one for you.
What if I tell you that there’s a way to know if they are your soulmate?
I’m going to show you a way that will help you to find out if they are your soulmate. It’s an easy process and can make all the difference. You’ll be able to tell whether or not someone is your soulmate, and you’ll be able to move on from them once you know the truth.

9) You miss their company and you feel that they have something important to teach you
This person knows almost everything about you, but you haven’t had the chance to meet or see them in person yet.
You are missing their company, as well as all of their input into your life. You feel as though they have something important to teach you.
Sometimes, if we are struggling or confused with something in our life, it’s easier to turn to someone who we can send messages with rather than someone we can talk to in person.
Maybe at some point in your life when this person with whom you’ve only communicated online listened and said something that made everything all better.
It might feel as though you haven’t talked for a long time, but you are missing their input in your life – which is what makes it so hard to move on.
Whatever the reason for their absence, if you are missing this person, you should put in the effort to stay connected to them.
You think that by getting to know them, you will finally be able to make sense of your life. You’ve been missing this particular person for too long, and now you’re thinking of the possibility to meet them in real life.
10) You don’t know how they feel about you
You’ve only met this person online and from there, the two of you were just flirting or chatting in a friendly way. You feel like you really like them, but you’re not sure if they are interested in you as well.
If this person is someone that you’re interested in, it’s normal to feel insecure.
The truth is that if they are not interested in you, then it’s best to find out as soon as possible. It will hurt less if it doesn’t work out. When you’re into someone and you have no idea how they feel about you, it’s normal to miss them.
The best way to find out if they are interested in you is to ask them – or even go on a “virtual date”.
If they turn down your offer, then the pain of missing them might be reduced drastically. It feels great when you know that someone else feels the same way as you do – but it’s not so great when things don’t work out.
11) You have strong feelings towards them
Maybe you have been exchanging messages or video calling with this person for quite some time now that you’ve developed strong feelings for them – I know, you can’t just help it.
If that’s the case, it’s totally normal to long for them.
It’s good when you’re in a relationship, and it’s great when you’re with someone whom you care about – even if you’ve just met them.
But if you are missing someone who is not in your life in person, it’s a lot harder to deal with – and the best way to make yourself feel better is to confess your feelings for them and hope for the best.
The truth is that you can’t expect someone to just know that you have feelings for them. You need to tell them – and it’s better done sooner than later!
Who knows, they might feel the same way towards you and from there, you will be able to solidify your relationship and start making plans to finally meet each other in person!
12) They’re the kind of person you’ve manifested before
There are many people who use the law of attraction to manifest their romantic partners.
If you’ve done this before, it is likely that you have manifested someone who can fill the same role as this person.
The way you do this is by thinking about them or by sending images of this specific person. This is a very common phenomenon and it’s something you should think about if you’ve had feelings for someone for a long time.
It’s not a bad idea to get a grip on your emotions right now before the situation becomes more serious.
If you want to manifest something for yourself, it can help to change the way that you think about people. The best way to do this is to visualize something completely different.
You should think about the ideal partner for your desires and what you want to have in your life.
We all have different goals when it comes down to relationships, so you need to find someone who shares these goals with you.
Think about the kind of person who could help you accomplish your goals – someone who has the same goals as you.
This is a great way to bring them into your life, because you have already manifested something that matches their desires. You can go ahead and let them know how you feel about them and it’s time now to see if they like being in your life as well.
13) You’re just bored
Boredom has the power to completely change your perception of the world and affect you in a way that makes you focus more on the present.
When you are bored, life becomes really dull and so does your mind – which is a perfect situation for not thinking about anything else but the person who’s the easiest to talk to.
If you’re feeling like you’re not happy with your life, it’s possible that you are just missing someone to talk to. Perhaps this person with who you’ve only interacted online came to your mind, and you feel like you’re missing the days or nights you’ve talked to them.
The first days or even weeks of talking to someone you’ve met online are fun and exciting – you’ve got a correspondent that has the same vibe or interests as you. But sometimes, as more weeks go by, the communication sadly just fades away.
And now that you’re bored at this point of your life, maybe life has been a routine now or you just can’t find a new hobby, you’re thinking of this person who faded away in your life.
Try to reach out again, try to re-feel this connection that you had with them and have a new adventure in your life!
14) They have broken your trust or caused you pain
You’ve probably been through this before – when you’re in a relationship with someone who doesn’t treat you well or causes you pain. It’s not fun to be in this situation, but it happens to most people.
You’ve met this person online, and became really good friends, but somehow – they’ve broken the trust you’ve given to them.
Even if you’ve only met them online, there are still a few things that they could’ve done that broke your trust:
- Sharing your private information without your permission (phone numbers, private messages)
- Sending unwanted or inappropriate messages
- Suddenly not replying to you anymore
- Being dishonest with you
These are just some examples of things that might be considered acts that could cause you pain or cut off any trust between the two of you.
If this is the case, it’s not easy to just remove yourself from this person’s life. It will be hard for a long time and it might even ruin your friendship with them if you were close friends before.
You felt betrayed but somehow, you’re thinking it could’ve been a great start to a good relationship with someone.
That’s why you’ve been missing them – you’ve got all the best intentions and what you think is a great relationship with this person, but somehow they’ve turned out to be not so great after all.
The situation can feel really bad and hurtful but there are different ways to deal with this. The first thing you need to do is simply tell them that they’ve hurt your feelings, and ask them why they did what they did.
15) Your imagination is running wild
Let’s say that you’re missing someone from the past – you met each other online, things went nice and you realized you had feelings for them, but the person ends up moving further away or doesn’t seem to want to meet you in person anymore.
You might start thinking that things would’ve been great if you had met them in person – that something magical would’ve happened between the two of you.
You’ve created scenarios in your head – all the “what ifs” that probably never happened:
- What if they would’ve met you in person?
- What if the two of you would’ve started dating?
- What if you were able to really kiss them?
- What if the two of you would’ve gotten married and had children together?
- What if you found out that this person was your soulmate and perfect match for life?
It’s possible that your mind is just running wild here because of all the thoughts about this person.
Try to practice a little of self-understanding and see what you have been feeling in life lately.
You might have felt something was missing but don’t jump to conclusions – it’s not easy to deal with these kinds of things and it might be time to talk to someone you can trust, someone who has experience in this kind of situation.
16) You want what you can’t have
It’s possible that you are crushing someone you found online but you can’t really approach them because they’re either:
- has many followers
- already in a relationship with someone else, or
- not interested in dating someone from the internet
It’s something that can happen to anybody – if you happen to be one of these people, it’s something you have to deal with.
You’ve tried making an attempt to approach them but it didn’t work out, maybe the intimacy seems really impossible between the two of you because of different situations or just because they’re not interested in being in a relationship at the moment.
That’s why the desire to have them grows every day, that makes you overthink and want to reach out to them even more.
If you really think about it, not a single relationship in the whole world has ever been perfectly perfect. No matter how much you’re craving for someone, there will always be some things that aren’t working out and aren’t going well.
Missing someone is a very common feeling. It’s also a feeling that you can get over.
First and foremost, you need to realize that you are having these feelings because it is real. This means that not everyone is going to have the same reaction to this, why? Because you are missing someone who you haven’t met yet.
You also need to be honest with yourself and ask yourself what you want out of this time. It’s also important to consider if you’re in a situation that could cause problems for you in the future. If you feel like this is a possible case, it’s best for you to address it immediately.
