I Don't Like To Date Clingy People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 65 People

    Space. Please.

    I'm sorry, but I don't need you hanging off of me every second of the day.  Snuggling while watching TV/Movies is one thing, but practically groping me in line at the super market is totally unacceptable.  I'm not going to vaporize if we aren't touching every second...
