I have been with my boyfriend for 3months. I am wondering how often we should be talking on the days where we don't see each other. He pretty much never texts me and never responds to my texts either but he will phone me pretty often. However, sometimes we can go one or two days without talking which I really don't like at all. But I feel like if I contact him during these times or tell him I would prefer it if we spoke everyday I would come across as needy and clingy. I don't know if speaking everyday is something we should be doing (something I would prefer), or if at 3months going a couple of days without talking here and there is more appropriate. I sometimes struggle with insecurities and clingyness and really want to reign that in so I can have a healthy relationship and so therefore don't want to just follow through with my impulses.
He basically says he doesn't like texting and prefers to talk but I feel quite hurt when he doesn't respond to my texts. I get abit shy to phone him up encase he is busy so i generally will never phone him but he will phone me most days.
