How do I get my girlfriend to spend more time with me?
I've been going out with a sweet & loving girl for a 4 months now. We started off really relaxed, nice and slow with dating, and things have been clicking and the chemistry has been amazing. We are exclusive now. I can tell she's really into me. She calls and texts me every day and seems genuinely concerned and curious about things going on in my life. I've fallen head over heals in love with her, and I'm also pretty sure she feels the same about me.
The problem is that we only see each other once a week, maybe twice at the most. We both have kids from previous marriages, and careers, projects and things that keep us busy. But I want to see her more! I get jealous of friends and family members who have boyfriends/girlfriends and significant others who get to hang out all the time. My girl, who seems to like me/love me, seems to not want to put in a lot of time together. It's strange because at times we'll talk on the phone in the evening and she'll tell me she misses me and that she's hanging around her house doing nothing. Yet when pressed to do something (even just hang around her place to watch a movie), I usually get excuses that she has to do this or that. It seems like it's a chore to set up dates or get-togethers with her.
So how do I get her to be crazy about me, where she is dying to spend more time with me just as much as I want to with her? It's killing me that I can't get more face time with her! But I don't want to come on too strong and smother her and appear too needy, clingy or whiny. Thanks in advance.
