Why Do I Miss My New Partner So Much? What Does It All Really Mean?

So you've been seeing your partner for a while now and  you've been missing them a lot lately...now you're wondering why you're missing him when a few hours pass by?

Well the most likely answer is that you are becoming emotionally attached to them...your feelings do get stronger over time and this happens when you are especially close to each other and tend to share almost everything.

So when you are away from your partner there feels like a piece of you either emotionally or physically is missing, almost like you are missing your other half...am I right? This is the kind of emotional attachment that is caused by the chemicals that get released when we begin to fall in love. There is one particular chemical that creates a euphoric, elated and attached feeling that draws you in...it's called dopamine. This would explain the feelings that you are going through both physical and psychological. This could also be a big part of the reason that you may get a little worried when your partner isn't around and you may feel like you are missing out on something...or even get a little concerned that they are around other people.

I wouldn't say this is because you are a jealous person but rather you feel like you should be taking up most of your partners time and if you aren't then you are missing out on something. When you end up in a relationship a sense of ownership is almost granted to both parties and this feeling can get stronger with time, it's the same feeling you would get with a dog or cat. If you don't give your dog or cat enough attention or they give more attention to someone else you may feel left out or vice versa.

This is a natural human reaction when you are emotionally attached to someone...so don't freak out you aren't going crazy...just make sure you react to it all naturally and don't turn into a crazy person!

And no, this does not mean your partner has to agree with everything you say. What we are talking about is the courage to express yourself regardless of what your opinions are.

You can never agree on everything.

The important thing is communication. And it should go both ways. But simple as this relationship requirement is, many couples are torn apart by poor communication.

Understandably, not everyone is an expert at communication, especially when it comes to their feelings. But there is a trick to overcome this. Try not to hold anything on the inside.

Say everything, even things that make you sad or angry. Your partner will not be able to figure out what you are feeling if you don’t express it openly.

4. You’re the caregiver type

In other words, you like to save people from problems. People come to you when they need someone to rescue them and you help them out every time.

5. You respect your word

While this is a great virtue, it makes it hard for you to change your mind, even when you should. To avoid feeling like you are a liar, you put yourself through situations you don’t like.

Being put on the spot makes it harder for us to define our boundaries. In our attempts to appease the person giving us their attention, we agree to things without meaning to.

But failure to have boundaries lets other people force us into situations that make us resent them. As long as you think having boundaries makes you rude, the wrong people will continue to put demands on you and you will end up resenting them.

You also need to stop equating having boundaries with lack of compassion. Instead, see it as a way to have self-respect. After all, you wouldn’t go around imposing responsibilities on people if it would make them uncomfortable.

Before anyone can respect you, you have to respect yourself first.

So, don’t be in a rush to give a response the next time someone asks you for a favor. Take your time and think it over and then give an answer you will not regret.

It’s okay to be honest about what’s not okay and what is.
