I just starting seeing somebody after being out of the dating circuit for awhile.

I think it's much more normal for things to move at this pace than someone who is in a big rush to get into a relationship--it's much healthier too.

great you like him not bad you think about him...just slow up...hit the breaks a bit...I would make the dates not last so long. Its a thing you each can maybe ware out your welcome ..someone might want the date to last 7 hours but after 3 the date shoud be over

I don't see anything abnormal about your post at all. I think even the best and most rational of us get anxious in the beginning stages of a relationship. Sometimes you can't help what goes on inside your head... At the beginning of my relationship I was NUTS over whether he liked me as much as I liked him, where things were going, etc... It was really useful to talk with friends about it so I could spare him the crazy :) We've been together almost seven years.

I think part of my problem is that I have never been into the mutliple dating thing....when Iike somebody, I like somebody, and I have a hard time going out with others.

"The only time he ever calls is to ask me out again, or to make plans. Thats' it.

I suppose you are right. My entire perspective is skewed. I really have no idea what's "normal" progression.

But I've taken the advice to heart and I don't reach out. I don't want to come across as needy bc im really not....although I can see how it might come across that way. Im not seeing him this weekend bc I have friends in town and he reached out Friday just to tell me to have a good weekend. So I'm back to just letting things progress
