Communicating during dating
Many guys are challenged in the subtlety department, and even if you think you might be perceived as coming on too strong, odds are, they're not seeing it that way - guys don't typically overanalyze such things the same way women are conditioned to.
If a guy is finding you to be coming on too strong, it's likely that it's due to him not actually being that interested (and it doesn't sound like that's the case).
Personally, I don't think it's pushy/needy/clingy to text once or twice a day if only just to say "Hi" or "Just thinking about you." I also don't think it's a big deal to go a couple of days w/o hearing from each other at all.
I hate it when I feel I must text/call someone otherwise I'd be hurting their feelings.
I always hate the line "if he/she likes you she'll make time".
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.
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. If he likes you and wants to spend time with you and enjoys hearing from you, he won't see you as needy for maintaining contact.
I get that sometimes people use their schedule as a way to keep people interested while they really do have the time. He might not have the time/inclination to randomly drop you a line as often (and you shouldn't take it as a slap in the face, per se), but if he likes you, you're not likely to come on too strong with what you're describing.

Obviously, this was a good sign that he wants to continue seeing me.
