    Wow. Yeah.

    I agree 100 percent. When people are too clingy, its annoying and just bleh. Like, its a huge turn-off. I am trying to do my own thing, have my time, and Im constantly getting texts, "hey(:" "How are you?" "What are you doing?" Just saying.

    My BF and I are on a break

    for two weeks. Then we're going to get back together and see how things go. Ugh.... I'm already resentful. We're simply going to bring to the table what we have to bring, and not ask the other to change. Wish me luck I guess

    If You Want To Push Me Away...

    Then cling to me so tightly that I feel like I cannot breathe. I cannot stand overly clingy people. Anyone that needs to constantly be coddled, and soothed by someone is a burden. It becomes all consuming and tiring after a while. That's why I can't deal with people like that...

    I stay away from people

    and don't trust much. There have been a few times when people have gotten too attached to me. I like my space, please don't smother me.

    Met quite a few of them here.

    Especially the perverts. You'll be talking just about anything from life to sex and such and suddenly they want to have your number, they talk about marriage (wwwhhhatttt?) and plea for you to call or see them. Had to block a few of them. And no, just because we talked about sex...

    My problem is that I tend to be too nice

    sometimes. If someone is nice to me, then I'm the same way. This girl at my school has a big crush on me. My friends see it's obvious also and they crack a bunch of jokes when the poor girl isn't there. She's a very sweet person and I actually do enjoy talking to her, calm...

    I hate when people depend on your every moment

    of life so they can feel like they can live theirs. I hate clingy people. Stop using me to fill your insecurities. Be your own person. Ugh!

    Just. Stop.

    I made a MAJOR mistake by ever even agreeing to this roommate dinner/ambush "blind date". I thought the dude was cool enough the first time around to be friends with, but ever since Sunday night, he and his BFF have been tag-teaming my phone with stupid messages. And they...

    So... I talked to my bf about his clingy-ness,

    and the things that I need that I'm not really getting. He said he was willing to work on them, and I told him he has until the end of May before I call it. So we'll see what happens. Do you think that's too much time, after not being happy for months? Or do you think it's fair...

    I Snap At Him Every Day! :/

    My poor colleague, I snap at him every day, but really hear me until the end! I’m really a short tempered person; you will know that from the first day you meet me, so do not provoke me! But it is not that I snap at people because of that, I never do it even if I’m super...

    I can't stand people always wanting to do

    something with me, or even touching me. I have a kind of phobia of people touching me, and i despise if people do so. Eventually, there are always people wanting to do something with me, clinging to me, like my sister. I get scolded for disliking her, but it's horrible how she...

    There gets to be a point

    where it is just too much. I seem to have a stage 5 clinger on my hands. He wants to know everything about me, and I barely know anything about him. He wants our schedules to sync up so we can talk all the time. I blocked him, and then he created another account just to keep...

    Its Just Annoying

    I have noticed in my past relationships i got clingy and obsessive. I let my ex become my entire world. When we finally broke up, I had nothing. No friends and no life outside of him. He didn't approve of male friends out of jealousy and paranoia, even the internet kind that...

    Sooo, there is this guy.

    He told me he started liking me back in 2013 of OCTOBER.. This boy and I have had a fairly good friendship. I don't like him any more than a friend. He just cannot accept that. He gets so hurt because I don't like him back. I am sorry but, it's not what my heart has. Besides...

    Boys are not supposed to be clingy. Girls are. Either way, it is annoying as hell. I don't know if it is because I grew up an only child or I enjoy my independence too much, or what...but I can't stand someone always needing another person. For example...my ex-boyfriend. We...

    Hate it. There's a difference between being

    their for someone and helping them out and caring for them now and then. Instead of being a clingy beg.

    Dang....give Me Some Space.

    I can not stand when people are too clingy.  Being like that only makes you want to be with someone else, and it just messes up the relationship.  One time I invited this guy over that liked me to watch a movie, and every time I got up, I noticed that he would...
