Communication in dating
I know this should be a no-brainer, but Im still nervous and a little unsure how to assert myself to him without coming across as clingy... Ive realized that I need to speak up more to get what I want from this guy, but dont want to overdo it because the relationship is still pretty new. There is no rule for it, and I don't like that people think there are rules for this. I have certainly put off girls by texting too much, and have certainly had girls thinking "this guy must be desperate". In the beginning you are getting to know each other, and as time goes on, the communication will naturally taper off.
Dating is to find a compatible person for you, not to turn yourself in to another person. If I meet a girl, I text her a lot and expect the same in return. If I don't really like the person, or vice versa, it's very easy to come off as too much communication.
As someone whose schedule is absolutely insane, I can attest that regardless of how much I like someone, I really don't have time to hang out or even text/call Mon-Friday. Twice a week on the weekends is fine at the few month mark.
I get that sometimes people use their schedule as a way to keep people interested while they really do have the time. What do yu do that doesn't even allow texting throughout the week? I'm a ridiculously busy guy, and understand people live busy lives. He said he shouldn't be too busy at work, and would contact me in a "couple days." It's now Wednesday afternoon, and I haven't heard from him...
His friends like me, and Im spending more time with him and making future plans. With friends, we both typically talk via text message.
So, this doesnt bother me about him, or vice versa.) Usually, hell text me to make plans, well chat about our week a bit, then set a date and time.
Basically, Im happy with the way things are going, and finally feel more secure and comfortable being with him. but in between, it still seems like we dont communicate much. (Neither of us are big phone talkers and really only call our families.After you create your account, you'll be able to customize options and access all our 15,000 new posts/day with fewer ads.So, things are progressing slowly but surely with the guy Ive been dating (and posting about) for the past few months.At this point, Id like to be able to just text him to see how hes doing, without expectations about WHEN well see each other again.I tried yesterday, but our conversation fell flat pretty quickly.
