    Default missed

    I wonder if there is a subtle difference between "1" and "2".
    1. I missed you.
    2. I've missed you.

    You could say #1 when someone has come back, "I missed you (while you were away)."
    With #2, the person could still be away, you could be talking on the phone or writing them a letter, "I've missed you (since you have been away)".
