So, do guys in relationships like it when their woman texts them first? Sometimes I'll go a day or two not texting my boyfriend, waiting for him to text me first (though we do light banter on Facebook too). I've texted him first before, but I always feel like I'm being a "bother," so I don't do it often. I would like him to text me every day, even just to say goodnight or that he's thinking about me.
I want to know what guys think. Do you like it if a woman you're in a relationship with texts you first?
Just a little background info: I've been with my boyfriend for about a month and a half officially as bf/gf, but have been dating him exclusively since July 4th. He's never not shown me interest and hasn't withdrawn or made excuses to not see me. We see each other only on the weekends (only missed two weekends seeing each other as I went on weekend trips w/my family).

Short answer... definite yes.
More explained, guys generally accept and have no problem being in the active, pursuing role which in this case involves texting/calling first. But we eventually come to a point if it continues to be one sided where we feel the same worries as girls do. "Am I coming across as needy? Is it too much? Am I being a bother? Is she even interested anymore?" So when it comes to texting, I think like in most things, there should be a balance. Not a strict one for one of course, but enough reciprocation on both parts.1
