Do you suffocate your partner sometimes because of too much attention you give?

There are people who loves too much that they become blind of what they really are parting or giving to their partner. Too much time and attention can suffocate them but lack of it makes them feel insecure and unhappy too. Can you balance your relationship and make it last? I haven't had a long and serious relationship before. I'm afraid to have too. Have you lasted in a relationship? Do you think you can make it last?

I used to have this problem before marriage. Calling sending every night even after that we have met, sending her cards and flowers. It seems that I really suffocated at that time. My wife who was a tomboy did not seem to appreciate my romantic gestures. I learned to lessen my attention. Now in marriage it seems that she desires the same "romantic" gestures that I did during our pre marriage period.

I think I give too much attention to my boyfriend. However, he says he doesn't mind. He doesn't mind when I'm jealous - even though he keeps assuring me that there is no need to be jealous. I like having him around and he doesn't like it when he doesn't know what I'm doing during the day - so I guess we're just the same. We put a lot of attention at each other so we don't feel like we're suffocating. We like it :D

I feel the sense of being needed whenever I am away from her. We always have each others company almost all the time. There is no day where we are not together. We are at our very best when we are together, and we feel there's nothing we can't handle when we walk this journey of life hand in hand. I have once open up this kind of topic to her before and she just told me, "I am who I am when I am with you". Hearing those words from her makes me say that the attention I gave her is worth it all.
