English term or phrase: I miss you
Ani - I
Otcha - You
Can you tell me how to say "I miss you"? From a female to a male?
I looked at the glossary for this, but wasn't satisfied with the answers. Please explain the difference?

--------------------------------------------------

mitga\'aga\'at = I miss (for \"I\" = a female)
mitga\'age\'a = I miss (for \"I\" = a male)
elecha = to you (when the \"you\" is a male)
elaich = to you (when the \"you\" is a female)

So my original answer is for a female that misses a male....
