The 6 Best 'I Miss You' Memes

Cats, pigs, and minions all seem to be missing someone close

The 'I Miss You' meme is one of the most popular memes you’ll find on the Internet. Most memes are images with text, but some memes are text-based, with or without a small image. Many memes feature animals (cats are especially popular), or cartoon or movie characters. Just about every well-known meme character has one or more 'I Miss You' messages.

'I Miss You' memes (and other types of memes) are used to express multiple sentiments, including actually missing someone, romantic overtures, long-lost friends, jokes, even implied threats, although also in a joking manner.

The meme message format is easy to adapt to your needs. If you don’t find what you’re looking for in our example memes, you can create your own with one of the many meme generators, such as:

Cats really do run the Internet, and the queen of the cats is Grumpy Cat. Grumpy Cat is a real cat named Tardar Sauce that suffers from feline dwarfism. It's this condition that makes Tardar look grumpy, because she has an underbite that results in a pouty or grumpy facial expression. Tardar isn’t really grumpy; by all accounts she’s a warm, fun-loving, and friendly cat, but her face has launched a thousand grumpy memes and counting.

I Miss You - Fix It is just one of the Grumpy Cat I Miss You memes. There are a number of variations, including I Miss You - Make it Better, and Grumpy Cat Will Miss You.

This meme started life as a joke appearing in numerous joke books back when joke books were actually printed. The line showed up in a few memes, usually depicting a tropical ocean scene. But with the Minions exploding into our consciousness in the 2010 movie Despicable Me, it wasn't long before the old joke and the new Minions became inseparable.

She's back; the Overly Attached Girlfriend. I guess she never actually went away once she appeared on the scene in her 2012 YouTube video. The video was an entry into a contest started by Justin Bieber, looking for renditions of his Boyfriend song, though this time from the viewpoint of women, A.K.A, the Girlfriend song.

The lyrics she sang all had to do with an overly attached girlfriend, and thus a never-ending supply of memes based on her attachment issues was born.

Best use:
I'll Never Miss You - Because We'll Always Be Together is just one of the many memes fitting the Overly Attached theme. The best use of this meme is as a funny greeting, a joke shared with friends, or to scare off a new friend.
