Does Your Partner Secretly Think You’re Clingy?

Have you ever been told that you’re too attached to your partner? Have you ever been accused of being needy or dependent by a current or former partner? If your motives may be pure, being too clingy in a relationship is anything but.

If you may enjoy spending time with your partner, it’s important to set some limits. These five crucial steps will assist you in transitioning from clingy to self-sufficient.
1. Put the phone down
If you’re the clingy sort, you’re probably used to calling your partner at all hours of the day. Your days can currently consist of endless back-and-forth communications, whether by text, phone, or sending pictures, posts, and emails. Although you can simply miss your partner and enjoy staying in touch with them at all times, this comes across as clingy and needy. You are bombarding, irritating, and likely upsetting your partner by your incessant urge to reach out at all hours, rather than give them room to focus on other matters, face the day, and have some downtime.

2. Follow Your Own Dreams

Clinginess in a relationship is often caused by a person’s lack of other hobbies and interests. Make your personal interests and pursuits a priority and strive to have a life apart from your partner. Having hobbies and pastimes that are meaningful to you will help you distance yourself from your partner and follow your own course.

By attending a spin class, enrolling in piano lessons, or joining a book club, you are assisting yourself in being less reliant on others. You don’t have to spend every moment with your partner, so find your own interests and pursue them alone. This will make you more autonomous, as well as more interesting and engaging.
3. Give your partner some breathing room

It’s possible that you don’t like it when your partner does something without you. Clingy people in relationships have a hard time accepting that their partner has a life outside of them, whether it’s going out to dinner with friends, going to a bar, or watching a movie. However, your partner’s ability to do and enjoy things without you is critical to the wellbeing and success of your relationship, as it is the special aspects of your personalities that make you a stronger team. You should indulge your S.O.’s wish to go golfing with friends or have a girls’ night out because you’re a couple and not a clone of your girlfriend. This demonstrates to your partner that you are concerned about their needs, that you are confident in the relationship, and that you value their happiness.

4. Let Go of Your Envy
Because they’re jealous or concerned about their partner’s commitment or potential infidelity, it’s not unusual for people to act clingy and needy. For example, if you’re concerned about your partner’s relationship with a cute coworker, you could insist on texting him or her during the day. You may also want to spend all of your time with your partner because you don’t trust their actions while you’re not around.
