    When saying "she missed me", is it je lui ai manqué or je l'ai manqué(e)?

    Also when does the past participle agree when avoir is the auxiliary? Does it agree with direct object pronouns or indirect object pronouns?

    She missed me---> Elle m'a manqué

    Is there's a compliment d'objet direct (le COD)?-------> If no, there's no agreement. If there is, check if it's after or before the verb. IF it's after the verb, there's no agreement. If it's before the verb, there's agreement.

    Eg.

    Il a tempêté pendant des heures-----> No agreement because there's no COD (tempêté quoi?qui?)
    Le maître d'hôtel a servi les convives avec beaucoup de gentillesse.--->No agreement because the COD (in bold) is after
    La souris que le chat a mangée était blanche---->Agreement present because the COD (in bold) is before the verb.

    Hope this helps

    Careful!
    Elle m'a manqué = I missed her

    She missed me = Je lui ai manqué

    On dit "manquer à quelqu'un"
    Je manque à ma copine = My girlfriend misses me
    Je lui manque = She misses me
