I Am Clingy

    ;-; to be honest it makes me horribly depressed

    when I don't see people (online/offline) for even a few hours. I get real attached and cling to people.

    I need you and I need you now.

    And I want you to be clingy. I don't need you all the time, just when we're supposed to be talking, I need you. 😒 I hate that I'm clingy, but I am.

    I am very clingy. I know it just has to be

    annoying. I get attached to people super easily but I have a feeling it's probably just pushing them away. Any tips on how not to be clingy?

    Looking For Someone To Relate To

    I feel like I am secretly clinging to the people on EP. I feel desperate for someone to relate to. I log on EP praying that someone has responded to one of my posts. I could make excuses for this behavior but I'm not going to.

    I know I'm clingy. I just,

    I'm passionate about people who I enjoy being around. I want to spend time with them and I want them to spend time with me. Is it so wrong to care? The worst part is that I know how clingy and annoying I can be, and realizing that maybe the people I am so attached to don't want...

    Help!!!

    I'm so emotionally needy lately. No amount of love can satisfy me. And I'm so intense about it. I don't know what's wrong with me!!!! I'm afraid that I'm going to scare off people in my life. Honestly, people have commented on the changes in me. What's wrong with me? How...

    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...

    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...

    Myself, I'm more of the possessive type.

    . But I love clingy friends.. Even my gf is clingy (even if she doesn't admit it) There's just something about someone being clingy that I love.. Maybe it's the attention?

    I'm becoming very needy.

    I know it's bad but I feel like a little puppy :p maybe it's just cuz I have nothing better to do and no one to hang with but I'm too clingy. I don't want to stay at home because ill just sit in my room but I don't have anywhere else to go. I need projects :p

    After reading posts people have made regarding

    being clingy I read one that made me think. I may have the reason of why I am clingy. A couple of years ago my mother told me she was sorry for not being more loving to me when I was very young. She would yell to my father to get me and take care of whatever my problem was at...

    I am very clingy with my female friends.

    So much so that I have scared some of them away. Ever since I lost my mother I have been wanting to find a similar connection with other women. Sometimes I think that I should warn them that I become very clingy if they talk to me a lot and especially the ones that give me...

    A Result Of Years

    With my nature, I am getting used to being either taken advantage of, forgotten about or rejected. This makes the rare connection much more important to me than it should be. I hold on for dear life because I am so lonely. I don't usually vocalize or act out my clinginess, I...

    I am really clingy, but only with my good

    friends. I never really talk to people so when I see my friends it's just instant 'LOVE ME NOW' but with relationships I'm really withdrawn and unemotional. God I'm weird.

    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!

    I cling to my boyfriend too hard. I get jealous over the smallest things. I'm way too insecure. He's a fairly attractive guy, & I get jealous when he just talks to a friend of the opposite sex. I always tell him I want more affection, and he gives me more. But more is never...

    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...
