I've been talking to a guy recently that I've become infatuated with. My problem isn't dealing with unrequited Infatuation, however--I've already stayed the night twice, we went on one coffee date, and we've spent a lot of time together around mutual friends. He's generally flirtatious and friendly, so I confessed that I liked him and wanted to spend more time together, and he was enthusiastic. In short, things seem to be going well.
That said, we live in cities 4 hours away from each other, so we haven't gotten much change to interact since and we don't message frequently at all. Although things are going well (not that I feel I should worry either way), this infatuation creates a LOT of thoughts and emotions throughout my daily life. These hormones, as much as I try to accept their reality, create a lot of anxiety and distraction, and although I like him I do secretly wish my mind was less attached.
Are there any contemplative/meditative techniques or bits of wisdom you would recommend? I feel like I just need some inner peace from this infatuation (which would honestly be better for the relationship if it went anywhere).
