Not Seeming Clingy in Long-Distance Relationships

Group Therapy: How Do I Show I Care Without Seeming Clingy?

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Things are moving along with a guy I have been talking to for quite some time. We don't live near each other but we basically decided there's no one else we'd rather be with after seeing each other about a month ago.

He has been more forthcoming than myself with how he feels (telling me not to fall in love with anyone else — does that mean he might be in love with me? — and even inviting me on his family vacation). I think I am still in the mindset of being cautious because it's distance and I'm afraid of it dying out and getting hurt after putting myself out there. So I want to know, because this is new, is it cool to send a text here and there telling him I miss him?

He tells me he misses me every time we talk but I am less direct about it. I just don't want to be clingy and I think as a woman, I am trying not to fit that stereotype. We talk about three times a week which is perfect because we are both super busy . . . things are progressing more and more. I just want to know how to keep his interest so he knows I do really care about him.
