ache for Would you mind correcting these sentences for me? My boyfriend is on a business trip and I am aching for him. I ache for the time when my only concern was to pass exams. Since I moved out I ache for my hometown. I am sorry about your loss. My heart aches for you.

They are all grammatically correct. However, the first and third don't sound very natural. We'd understand what you meant, but I don't think a native speaker would normally use 'ache' in this way. the verb 'miss' would be the natural choice in both of these sentences, or perhaps 'long for'.
