    I've been dating this guy for the last few weeks and it is all very casual. We don't text at all unless it is to set up a date and he is always the one to initiate the exchange. Anyway, he was feeling sick on the last date (but showed up, rather than cancelled) and I was just wondering whether it would be okay to text him a get well soon/happy xmas kind of text. I'm just concerned about appearing clingy/a nag for doing so, since it really isn't serious at all. Thanks for the feedback!

    Do it. It's not as if you're gonna texting something that implies you're clingy, you're just showing general concern

    That's not needy or clingy. Or you could even send like "happy xmas guys !!" so it seems as if youve sent it to a bunch of people so you're playing it cool.

    It's Christmas time, and he's ill and he showed you affection. I think you know the answer to that.

    Trust me, this comes from someone with no shame about textual clinginess*.



    *I don't know why, but in text form I always seem much more clingy than in any other form.

    you're dating....logic dictates you must like him...he is ill...you are wondering if you should send a get well text.

    The answer is yes by the way. Though honestly I'd send a friend a get well text, let alone someone I was starting a relationship with.

    aww...I like to add huggles to my texts... , just because I like to cuddle people so much IRL and it sort of drifts over..

    but yes it is, people should hug every day, multiple times ideally. There shouldn't be this dumb macho guy thing where male friends can't hug properly either! Hugs are good for everything!
