    Well it would mean that "I am bored without you"... which sounds kinda strange in English too...

    First. I Never said that this means you're bored.

    Second. As funny as it may sound, I hear Я без тебя сучаю just as often as i hear я по тебе скучаю.

    Third. I dont even care anymore... 'I miss you - я скучаю по тебе' butif u want to be unique and say it in your own dorky way then i dont really give a sh...

    1) Yes, it was Solzhenitsyn's lover who said it
    2) Yes, I think "Я без тебя скучаю" is also possible.

    It seems like the author of the topic want to know all variants of this sentence

    Would these work?

    Я всегда думаю о тебя.

    Все время я думаю о тебя.

    I am always thinking of you.

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Interesting, I am certain I heard the phrase "о тебя" in some poem or song but I cannot seem to find it.

    Yea! I've heard that before too! It was in a Kraski song! She said "Может он забыл о нас".

    Shouldn't it be нам?

    No, "забыл о нас" is correct.

    забыл о нас
    забыл про нас
    забыл о тебе
    забыл про тебя

    But... Doesn't that mean something more like "Forgot against us"?
    О + acc = against with physical contact
    О + prep = about

    First: "to miss someone" is one of the hardest phrases to adequately transalte into Russian (the other is "to be excited about smth"; I guess Russians are not good about expressing feelings).

    Second: Скучаю по тебе is as good a translation for the purposes of a letter as you will find.

    Third: Мне тебя (так/очень) не хватает is another option although it may be a little too strong for a casual letter ending. You say it when you mean it, as in Мне тебе так не хватает, не могу ни спать, ни есть, приезжай скорее.

    Sorry, that's not Russian. That's something they put in movies and books about Odessa. Cute, but not Russian.

    That entirely depends on the context. In one scenario, as things are unfolding the appropriate expressions would be:

    Нам уже хорошо?
    Может, ещё по одной?
    Ты уже на автопилоте?
    Не думаю, что он нас слышит.
    Ничего не помню. Где я?
    I've got a TV, and I'm not afraid to use it
