A guy that is needy is almost never a great thing in a girls perspective. Who want's to be constantly receiving texts from someone demanding attention? But something I'm struggling with is trying to figure out where the line gets drawn as to 'needy'
Because let's be honest, we all need something from our SO. If my girlfriend didn't talk to me for 2 days straight, I would start to feel lonely. Heck maybe even after 1 day I probably would miss her, because I do love her that much. But I would never say that, because I don't want her to think of me as needy. You see where this is going.
I'm just the sort of person who wants attention from people, I just enjoy everyone's presence so much (and especially my gf's) that I just can't help but to be the one who always reaches out and texts first. I've just always feared that this action is going to make people think I'm needy in a bad way, which I don't think I am. I always give everyone plenty of space, and can easily pick up on the "I'm busy" vibe.
But I want to know your opinion, what do you think is right on the line between needy and okay? Would you say wanting to text everyday is needy? Thank you for your responses!

Hmm this is a good question, but it's very dependent on the individual and situation I think. So for me, if I'm just talking to a guy if he keeps messaging me like in a way that's indicative of him being upset that I'm not responding, I'll get annoyed. I remember talking to this dude on Tinder, never met yet, and if I didn't reply in like 2 hours he'd follow up with "?" If it was someone I was dating, I'm all about texting all day every day (if you actually have something to talk about or if you just want to send a cute note) but I know a lot of people aren't like that.2
