7 Tips on How to Deal with a Clingy Boyfriend ...


No book out there could give you an easy and fast answer on how to deal with a clingy boyfriend, and unless you’ve got Merlin on speed-dial, you’d better learn how to take it slow.

Neediness is normal for some, totally annoying for others but it’s hardly a reason to skip dating a potentially great guy, so try doing your best to make it work.

The sooner you start, the better, and here are some tips on how to deal with a clingy boyfriend that will help you determine when to act, how to act and whether to act at all:

1. How Clingy is Too Clingy?

My first step when trying to determine how to deal with a clingy boyfriend usually involves consulting my inner Cling-E-Meter.

Good night texts I can deal with, pet names before pet names are due… okay, I’ll live.

No L-words on a fifth date for me, however, and harassment via phone is definitely a deal breaker.2

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to sound too harsh, but if you’re feeling like you’re being stalked rather than courted, you should at least presume that getting the guy to loosen up won’t be a piece of cake.2
