There are moments in life.
When you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them up from your mind and hug them...
Sometimes missing a person can have little or nothing at all to do with love.
I agree that missing a person can be based solely on habit and on convenience.
It's programmed into your head that this person is a part of your regular routine.
you can miss someone but that doesn't automatically translate into "love".
It's like that old saying, "If you have to ask you can't afford it"...well in this case, with love, "If you have to ask, you haven't felt it".
A person will just know when they are in love with someone.
I miss a lot of people, for a lot of reasons ( specially who concern, care of me during my very hard time before, during my health problem stress me out, sure friend I never forgot all of you till end of my life)
I miss goofing around, or the great chats, or the quiet comfort, or whatever else.
Missing someone just means that you miss something about how they affect your life in whatever way they do.
When change is involved, then it's easier to miss something or someone because yea, you were used to this and that being done such and such a way (or time) and now it's diminished or gone altogether.
What you miss then is routine.
But no, missing someone doesn't mean that you love him/her it FACT.
P/s...missing all the great friend of me..
