17 Things Women do That Appears Clingy to Men ...

By Heather

Women get clingy sometimes. More often, we're not even clingy, we just do things that come off as clingy. I do it. Lyndsie does it. I bet a lot of you do it, too. It's not that we're possessive or insecure or anything like that, and you should always feel free to talk to your partner about your feelings. Discuss any insecurities you have in the relationship, talk about the things you need to make you feel comfortable, and don't worry if you do any of the things that women sometimes do that can make them seem clingy. Be aware of them, sure, and tone them down if you have to, but don't feel bad.

1 Texting All of the Time

Texting All of the Time Women aren't the only ones who do this, of course, and not all women do. But sometimes some of us text a lot. It's mostly because we just like to be informed. We want to chat, we want to know what you're up to, we want to vent about our day, and yeah, maybe we'd like to know what's going on.

2 Showing up Wherever He is

Showing up Wherever He is Now, okay, I can see how this comes off as clingy. And maybe a little weird, too.

7 Not Taking the Hints He Wants to Be Alone

Not Taking the Hints He Wants to Be Alone It's okay to let your partner be sometimes. Just because they want to be alone, it doesn't mean they want to break up. They just need some alone time. Take some for yourself, too!

8 You Keep Him Talking for Hours – and He's Limited on Time

You Keep Him Talking for Hours – and He's Limited on Time I'm not gonna lie, you might want to stop this. Lyndsie still does this to me sometimes and it's pretty frustrating – not because your partner doesn't want to talk to you, but because they can't do it right this second.
