Is there a single word in English that means "easily make others miss the person"?

For example, if such word were xqxqxq, a sample sentence would be:

The baby xqxqxqs everyone because she is so cute. (if the word is a verb), or The baby is xqxqxqs for everyone because she is so cute. (if the word is a verb)

  • charms/is charming to | delights/is delightful to| enchants/ is enchanting to are possibilities. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Oct 2 '14 at 11:55

    I am not sure that one person can make another person miss them. – user6951 Oct 2 '14 at 12:20
  • CarSmack, your comment reminds me of the word "irresistible". – Ahmad Ridha Oct 2 '14 at 13:42
  • Was the baby trying to imprint itself on everyone's memory by being cute? Hmm... sounds like a baby thing, or a cat thing, or maybe I watched too many sequels of Twilight. :-) – Damkerng T. Oct 2 '14 at 15:25
  • @CarSmack Keep in mind that causatives are different in each language. The OP is probably not trying to use a coercive causative despite their wording. – snailboat Oct 2 '14 at 20:36
