(love/hate/love/hate). Ya, he sounds smitten and a person smitten is hard to get the attention of. I have been going through some of this myself with a new love. Make some firm boundaries about texting, and date nights being a certain time, take a deep breath and smile at him lovingly. He's going to screw it up, such is the nature of nre. Don't take it too seriously, people are like children when they are on nre. They still love you, but they love their new toy in a "squeeeee!" Kind of way. He's got a new toy. Be happy for him but remind him you require restricted access as you believe that for you and him its healthy to keep a balance in life.
