One thing needs to be cleared before we even start. There are many people that have an avoidant style, but nobody can be love avoidant.
Avoidant individuals can avoid intimacy, relationships, or any kind of commitment but they can’t avoid love.
Love is a feeling that is uncontrollable and it cannot go away when someone falls in love with someone else, no matter how hard they try to reject the feeling.
The article analyzes techniques for making an individual who suffers from Avoidant personality miss you when you want them too; most often as a means of coping with their ambivalence about being loved and living loved. It’s also an article about how to make that person chase you or fall back in love with you.
It can be hard to make an avoidant person miss you. It may not seem like they want attention from you, but deep down they do. Here are 10 ways to make an avoidant person miss you.
Don’t Pressure Him
If he’s told you that he needs some distance from the relationship to think things over, respect and accept his decision. Don’t text him as much and don’t call him as much. Don’t ask if he’s thought about how to make the relationship work, and don’t pressure him for sex if that is what you’re trying to accomplish. If you try to put pressure on him by pursuing him in any way, then he will just start avoiding you more.
A man who will become less interested in you as your relationship becomes more serious. Don’t fret, though! You can change his behaviour by talking things through while avoiding words that are critical and demeaning.
Compromise in a way that makes the other person feel respected by agreeing on what is most important for you – so long as it doesn’t compromise your values. Avoidants are very uncomfortable with confrontation and arguments, especially with people they love.
Show Them You A Need Them
At the end of the day, avoidant individuals are also co-dependent and a relationship is their most important thing in life. They need to feel wanted by someone else or they can get very depressed sometimes. So when you’re trying to make an avoidant person miss you, show them that you still care about them and want them in your life even if there’s an argument going on between you two or a fight is taking place. Tell yourself that being a good partner means that you should never give up or walk out on somebody who loves you! It takes more strength not to give up on love, than to give up.
Action Speaks Louder Than Words
Actions speak louder than words. Avoidants don’t respond well to sort of obvious signs of emotional attention like hugs or kisses or holding hands; they need something deeper and more meaningful. They’re not going to care that you said ‘I miss you’ unless you show them how much you mean those words by doing something for them even if it makes you uncomfortable and out of your comfort zone.
Give Them Space
Give the other person some space so they can breathe without feeling trapped with their emotions about things, but at the same time keep in touch with them through texting or phone calls; just enough so that they are reassured that you still want to be there for them. If you make them feel like your gone, they’re more likely to think about breaking up with you and getting out of the relationship.
Don’t Put Them Down
Avoidant individuals are very sensitive. They can be easily hurt by harsh words or actions that are on purpose. They also fear being abandoned, so when they see signs that their partner might be getting ready to leave them, they start feeling depressed because they don’t want anybody else in their life but the person who loves them. So how do you show someone like this that you care? You never talk bad about them or put down their feelings and thoughts; even if it means hurting yourself in a way! It takes a lot more love not to say something mean than it does to say something mean.
Let Them Know How Much you Mean to Them
They need to feel wanted by someone else or they can get very depressed sometimes. So when you’re trying to make an avoidant person miss you , show them that you still care about them and want them in your life even if there’s an argument going on between you two or a fight is taking place. Letting them know how much they mean to you will help them overcome their anxiety about being loved.
Let your body show what you feel.
Body language can be used to tell an avoidant person that you miss them. Unfortunately, they are not very confident and have low self-esteem. They might even act timid or needy when they come around.
They don’t hug or touch in the ways that you may prefer; do whatever it takes to make your partner think that he is still wanted.
Keep your body relaxed and avoid over-animated gestures. When initiating conversation, position yourself close but maintain an air of calmness.
love bomb Them
Avoidants will associate getting close with something bad happening to them or their loved one.
This is where love bombing comes in handy – showering the other person with positive attention (like complimenting how smart they are, how cute they look all the time, telling them how much you love being around them). But avoidant individuals need more than just words; they want actions.
If you can show an avoidant person that making a commitment to be with them forever doesn’t mean giving up your life but actually gives you both a deeper connection because of the presence of another soul who loves you beyond all limits, then you can make them miss you.
Be Patience, Accept Them For Who They Are
To win someone’s love and have a great relationship with an avoidant individual requires great patience and understanding.
You need to realize that just because they’re paranoid about being abandoned doesn’t mean that they want your love more than you want their love; but it also means that if you prove to them over and over again how much they mean to you, this paranoia will eventually fade away into the background of their life until one day, it is completely gone! It takes more strength not to give up on love, than to give up.
