    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...

    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

    ;-; 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'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

    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?

    that he can't see our relationship lasting if I continue to be as clingy as I am. I realize that I have a lot of trouble thinking about anything else but spending time with him...however I never thought of my attachment as a fault--I just assumed that I felt this way because I...

    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.

    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...

    ...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...

    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...

    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...
