My Boyfriend and I Don't Talk Enough

Group Therapy: My Boyfriend and I Only Talk on Weekends

So I've been seeing this guy for about two months and things are going pretty well, and it definitely seems like we are headed toward a serious direction because that is something we are both looking for in our life right now. He's even mentioned about wanting to settle down and start a family. It's been two years since I've been with someone, and for him it's over two years, too. I'm 24 and he is 34. He works a lot of hours because he is high up there in the corporate world. One thing that has been bothering me is we don't communicate during the week, only on the weekends. Sometimes I will send him random texts about food or jokes but we don't get into a conversation about it. I know he works long hours, sometimes 10-12 hours a day. I'm not asking him to talk to me everyday. We don't have to talk everyday. It would be nice of him to text me or have a short conversation with me sometimes just for me to know that he hasn't forgotten about me.

In my past relationships and with the guys I casually dated, we talked or texted daily. Sometimes it was not everyday, but just enough to know that we are thinking about each other and are curious about what we are both doing.

So, I mean am I asking for too much? I'm not a clingy person. I have a full-time job and activities after work, so I wouldn't want to lounge around and talk on the phone everyday like I used to. Everything is going great so far and I'm really happy but this is bugging me! How should I bring this up?
