My boyfriend and I don't get to see each other very often right now because of our jobs and so on.
He hates talking on the phone, but will text once in a while.
The lack of time together has been a strain on our relationship, but we handled it pretty well.
I want to start working on ways to spend more time together, but in the mean time would like to at lease hear from him once a day. If no more that a text saying Goodnight or Good morning, love you or something.
I know I can't make him stay in contact ( I would never want him to feel forced to do something), but I would like to say " I understand we are both busy and tired, but I need to hear from you a little more".
I don't want to be the clingy girlfriend here but feel a little more contact would help us.
So what do you think?
Should I ask?
Or am I being too needy?

Just ask him for a daily text or short call.
Don't wait for him to call everyday, also call him or write him a txt, sharing responsibility.
Just don't let it become a chore in times of high stress like working overtime or whatever, I don't know in which field you two are working but sometimes one can be too tired to sleep, in those instances even calling/txting a loved one can be really bothersome.
Still I find it a valid request.0
