One of the things that scares a potential mate away faster than a drug habit is being too “clingy”. One great discussion over at DateHookup asks to define “clingy” and “needy”. The thing is when one person sees the date as a casual fling, while the other person latches on like they’re hanging onto a life preserver in the middle of the ocean.
If this sounds like you, perhaps you need to step back from any dating and ask yourself if you, all alone, feel like a complete person. Insecurity can blur your thinking, so that you’ll convince yourself that you’re madly, passionately in love with anybody who smiles at you over the coffee counter. While women are usually the ones who do this, men can be clingy, too. In either sex, it’s a serious problem – and a date-killer, to boot!
