Write, “I hope you’re having a good day. I just wanted to let you know that I’m thinking of you.” or “Hey handsome! How’s your afternoon going?” In an email, write, “Dear Nina, I was thinking about how much fun we had at dinner last night. I’m so lucky to have you in my life. I can’t wait to see you again.”
