How much time you spend together when you first start dating is a hot topic of debate in my friendship group. Even though I appreciate that everyone is different, I'm always in the camp of not seeing each other too much, so you don't fall into a love bubble and get an unrealistic sense of someone. Each option has their pros and cons. I've been told that I seem unavailable or not very interested, while some of my friends have come across as needy.
