1. I have been missing you.
2. I have been thinking of you.
3. You are always in my mind.
a. What are the difference between the above sentences?
b. Which one we use for intimacy?
(any mistake in this sentence?)
"I have been missing you" is more intimate than "I have been thinking of you", but it all depends on the context (and tone/inflection of voice if spoken). If you're speaking to a lover or very close friend and you sort of coo "Oh, I have been missing you sooo much", then that's intimate. If a preacher sees a member of his congregation who hasn't been attending services regularly he might say "I haven't seen your smiling face in church lately, I've been missing you" in a slightly reproachful tone. In this case it's not intimate, but a subtle attempt to make the errant person feel guilty about missing church services.

Again depending upon the context, "you are always on (not "in") my mind" is the most intimate of the three statements.
b. Which one do
