     the sad thing is i never really considered myself as such because i didn't do all the "standard" clingy things: calling too much, worrying too much, always around too much... because really the phrase "too much" depends on each person. what if a clingy...

    I don't mean to be clingy,

    but what's mine is mine. I like to embrace what we have and no body else is allowed to have you 😏💕

    I Am a Lot, and It's Probably Not Good....

     I am a really clingy type, when I am with my love I just always need to me holding her some how. her hand, or her waist, or my arm around her shoulder, or arm in arm.  just something!  I don't really know why but i guess it's just because I love her so much and...

    Clingy!

    Yea i found im the very clingy type, if im with someone i give as much attention as i can and love it right back, you could find me snuggleing on the couch watching a movie instead of being all sprawled out. I dunno i just love the attention whenever i can get it i guess. DB

    Am I ?

    ...well partly I am, but only to one person. I was never affectionate or dependent to other people. I prefer to do things by myself wherever and whenever I can. I don't show any emotion that will depict clinginess either. Just thinking that I am clingy makes me feel sad, like I...

    Way Too Attached.

    I mean last night, when I was on the phone with a friend... I just wouldn't let her go to sleep. We went through over 10 minutes of saying bye and she started getting really annoyed. Eventually I let go and started apologizing over and over and she said "No, it's not your fault...

    Wants And Needs

    The "sucky" thing about it is that I really don't want to change either, I like the feeling of constantly talking to someone and interaction. I wish I didn't need it perhaps just because it's a hard void to fill.

    For a Good Reason

    I'm not reallya clingy type, but I am clingy to those who I am most close too. not in a way that's excessive, but that in a way where I am rather protective. Maybe a little over protective. Especially of my wife. So I guess in that sense I am clingy, yet not.

    Perhaps no man is an island, but many are quite proficient at being a slightly land-bridged peninsular. I wish I was one of them. Strangely enough, for the most part, I think clingy people are adorable, but hate being one myself. I see it as a sign of weakness and desperation. In...

    Can Be a Little Annoying

    Yep... I often annoy the crap out of people... because I am a bit (a bit?) clingy. I am a passionate person by nature, so it comes so naturally to hold on tight to my friends and loved ones. And with romantic relationships, I am worse! I want to be around that person all the time...

    24/7

    I want to spend all of my time with my partner. Doing everything together, holding hands, sharing every moment together. I suppose that some see this as being clingy and would feel suffocated by such affection. To each his own. I won't apologize for who I am.

    Need Too Much Affection!

    Too Much Is A Bad Thing

    I've been the clingy type ever since I was little. Then it was cute, now its not. Its so much that I think it keeps pushing people away. And when I try to control it, I seem like I don't care. Plus, I begin to feel lonely and depressed. I want to be able to have a nice...
