I don't text my boyfriend excessively. I tend to just send him a text at some point everyday with a funny meme or something in hopes it'll put a smile on his face. He usually ends up texting me back once he gets off work and we chat for a bit before we both go to bed, and we go on dates maybe once or twice a week.
Sometimes though, I can't help but wonder if maybe my sending that initial text earlier in the day might be considered too much and he's just too nice to say anything about it? Should I start putting more of a gap (like a couple days or something) and give him a chance to be the first one to reach out? Or am I just overthinking this whole thing?
Thanks in advance for your advice! You guys have always provided pretty accurate insight so I always come here when I've got a question like this, lol.

There's an easy way to tell if you're texting too much -- if you're doing it many times before he replies. It's not how often so much as how much you do it before getting a reply. If the replies slow down but you don't slow down with the texting, it can be a bit tiring. If it's then followed by like, "Where are you? Why haven't you texted me?" then it starts to feel a bit clingy.
I'm personally not into texting. My texts were always solely for the purpose of setting up to meet in person and maybe an "I miss you" or something like that here and there.1
