Every time I like a guy, and we text, for example, I get a bit anxious sending and then waiting for a text back. I always wonder if they are even going to bother to text back, or if they will continue the flirting, etc.
How can I get a grip? I don't have much dating experience, but I am 28 years old, for frigs sake. I have a full-time job and am quite busy but in the back of mind, in the beginning stages of a relationship, I'm naturally unsure how it will go and don't want to get my hopes up. Then while at work, when I should be devoting my energy to that, I am constantly checking my phone as I am able.

This happens to me all the time. I'm a clingy type of person. I've been in a relationship for almost two years now and I'm 20. My girlfriend is the type of girl that forgets about having a phone and forgets to write back. So when we're texting and I don't get a reply back in 1-3 minutes even when the conversation is serious, I get pretty annoyed. I've learned to try not to expect a quick reply from her over the past few months, and whenever we're texting, I try to keep my mind busy, wether it's with work, studies, talking to someone else, or reading (mostly reading) unless I notice she is really into the conversation.1
