I've recently (in the past two weeks) entered a relationship with a girl I've been dating for about two months. We, so far, seem to be pretty compatible with each other and I'm happy.
A little background: I'm a recent college graduate and she is a senior in a difficult, time-consuming major. In addition to this, she has a couple of chronic illnesses that flare up from time to time and can cause issues.
Due to both of our busy schedules, during the time that we were dating before we became official we didn't text a lot - usually just to set up dates and the occasional text about something random. We would regularly go for a couple of days without talking to each other.
I feel like we settled into that communication pattern (although the frequency is much better than it has been.)
Now that we're in a relationship, I'd like to talk to her more between the times that we get to see each other. How do I bring this up to her in a way that respects her/my schedule and doesn't come across as needy or clingy?
