Do you need to have the talk or just go with it!

I’ve been seeing a guy for about 6 months & it’s going really really well, however I feel like I need to know what he’s thinking about where things are leading but worried I am overthinking it as we are planning events in the coming months etc. When I’m with him it’s amazing, we do spend a lot of time together, but he uses up too much head space when apart. Am I being silly? A giddy 38 year old
