Showing your love for your guy the best way you know how is normal. Why would you even be in a relationship with him if you just stop exerting effort altogether once you become a couple, right? But there's a line that separates being incredibly sweet from being needy and clingy. Your guy needs some space, too, so he can do what he wants and needs to. If you keep popping up everywhere, how can he breathe and pursue his dreams? Having each other is nice, but sometimes it can be suffocating if you're doing it all the time. Check the signs below to make sure you're not becoming an overly attached girlfriend. If you are, maybe it's time to give him some space. P.S. This also applies the other way around!
1 You always want to talk for hours and hours.
Even after you've just seen each other in school or in a dinner date.
2 You hate it when he needs to be with the bros.
Because you think you are the only friend he needs in his life. How about no?
3 Or demand to join when he's hanging out with his friends.
Because you should be close friends with his close friends, too. Duh.
4 You get super jealous when you see a girl talking to him or commenting (and liking!) his posts online.
Your thought process when going through your boyfriend's feed: Who is she and what does she mean by "You look good together. Hehe." What does that "hehe" mean? Why is there a "hehe" at the end of the sentence?!
5 You love playing damsel in distress.
G I R L.
6 You ditch your appointments with anyone and everyone once he calls and makes plans with you.
Study group can wait.
7 You always demand for time—and attention.
Because seeing him six days a week just ain't enough.
8 You are always suspicious.
You always find the need to check his phone and demand for his online accounts' passwords. When a girl's name comes up, you are tempted to send her a message and ask her who she is. Because that's ~totally~ normal.
9 You think you love him more than he loves you.
Is your relationship a competition? We think not.
10 Every single plan you have involves him.
You always find the need to emphasize that he's yours and that you'll be together, forever.
