It's none of my business so I keep my nose out of it but I curious about how you would deal with someone like this. I have a good friend who has a girlfriend who doesn't give him a moments peace when it comes to having any personal space. She goes with him anywhere and everywhere. He can't even go to the store without her tagging along. She is always sitting right on top of him and rubbing him and pushing her hands through his hair. I can see that it is starting to wear on him. I have always been one that can't stand anyone that clingy but then I had a crappy childhood moving from one foster home to the next so maybe I am just screwed up. How much lovely stuff can you take before it's just too much.

There may be three reasons for those clingy partners to be so clingy. The first one is that those people per se are lack of security sense. They need their parners all the time so that they can ensure there will be nothing bad happen to them. The second one is they don't trust their boyfriends. Why they don't trust their boyfriend? Maybe because their boyfriends got too much girlfriends before; maybe because they can't feel love from their boyfriend. The third reason is that those girls are not quite confident of themselves. They found themselves not so pretty, or not so gentle, or not so educated than other girls. How to deal with clingy partners? I think if you fix up all the reasons that make your partner clingy mentioned above, you may fix up all the problems your clingy partner brings to you~!

I think you have hit it right on Landi927, excellent response. She was in a 20 year relationship with a real jerk so I am sure that plays into it. They are both so meant for each other I would hate to see it end because he can't breath.
