I often hear people saying that they miss someone but how does it feels like?

Imagine you have just finished a delicious meal. You are still a bit hungry and you really want more. But it is all gone. That's the closest I can come to describe missing someone. Hope it helps.

A void, like there is nothing there but something (normally a person) should be, and its physically painful.

Or at least, thats what i associate with loneliness, idk if thats what it really is.

This helps me, and it helps when I explain "missing someone" to others

Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation -- "As I experience certain sensory input patterns, my mental pathways become accustomed to them. The inputs eventually are anticipated and even missed when absent."

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personality trait characterized by the inability to identify and describe emotions in the self. Core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relationship.
Alexithymia is prevalent in approximately 10% of the general population and is known to be comorbid with a number of psychiatric conditions. Due the inability to cope with feelings and emotions as described in psychology there are counseling services to establish mental health.
Psychologist have argued that the alexithymia construct is strongly related to the concepts of psychological mindedness and emotional intelligence.
