Is dating once a week normal in the beginning?

There is this guy I have been seeing for about a month and a half.

Is dating once a week the norm when a guy works full time and is a Gym nut?

We mainly see each other on weekends. Never during the week.

I get texts from him every couple of days during the week, always on weekends, with him telling me about his day and with him asking about mine.

Should I be initiating dates as well? Could he be waiting for me to be doing that or is it better for the guy to do all the chasing?

I just thought that this would be the time where we can't get enough of each other and he would be looking for excuses to see me in person.

I know that things seem to be going well because he does keep in contact a fair bit. Even has initiated phone calls a few times. I never have rang him first. Does it sound like it is going well though regardless?
