How much discussion?

I just read an article about how divorce is like breaking an addiction, and I agree because I MISS having daily companionship. Obviously it was one-sided or he wouldn't have left, but I looked forward to my husband coming home, greeting him with a kiss, and catching up on the day. I miss that affection.
So now that I'm dating, I'm having a hard time figuring out the boundaries and I'm worried I will scare off good prospects. Most guys seem to only have time for one weekend date, one casual mid-week date if I'm very lucky, and maybe a phone call or text every other day. I'd like more than that! I'd like to know that he's thinking about me, even if it's just once per day text especially in the beginning of a relationship. Otherwise, I get maybe 4 hours in person on the weekend and may 1 phone call and 2 texts. That doesn't seem like much to build a relationship on. Am I expecting too much or being too clingy?
I had one guy call me 10 days after a date and wonder why I was irritated; he'd been traveling on business and didn't have time to call, email or text. If that's how you treat a first date, then how would he be in a serious relationship?
