When I started dating a new guy after my breakup, I felt I had to reach out to him all the time. If he was going to get the message that I was interested, then it was up to me to to inform him…constantly.
Whenever I didn’t hear from him within 24 hours I’d reach out to him by text:
“How are you?”
“I miss you.”
Yes, this was my way of reminding him that I existed. For every moment he was not texting me or making plans, I felt that he must’ve forgotten about me and moved on.
