Have a clingy partner? Here’s how to deal with it

Isn’t it beautiful to have a partner who showers you with love? Yes, but not when he or she turns into a clingy one. Some people tend to get over clingy in a relationship, which does not always work out for the best. Most probably, a clingy person won’t stop calling, texting and having doubts every time you’re away from each other. 

Do the things mentioned above ring a bell? If yes, then it is time for you to talk to your partner to let them know how you feel. Their rationale for checking in on you might allow themselves to feel more secure, but it will not make it easier for you. You never know, but opening up about it might make your significant other understand how you feel and why they need to change their habits. Well, if it doesn’t work out, it was probably never meant to be. After all, relationships are all about understanding each other. 

With that said, here’s how you can deal with a clingy partner without being rude. 

1- First of all, be honest with your feelings for your partner. Hiding them will only make things worse. The pent-up feelings will make you lose interest and everything your bae does will seem annoying. So, be honest so that you can move forward in the right direction.

2- Encourage your partner to pick up an old hobby or meet up with their friends to divert their mind to something other than this relationship. 

3- You can ask nicely to want to have some space in the relationship. And don’t beat around the bush when you finally gear up the courage to talk to your partner. 

4- Now, you must be wondering how to express your feelings? If you don’t want to hurt your partner, don’t try the ‘blunt’ approach. Try to be more passive and say something like, “I appreciate everything you do for me, but I need a little bit of ‘me’ time as well.” 

5- Refrain from using words like “clingy” or “needy” or anything that could hurt your partner. Any of these words will only come off as rude and make you seem inconsiderate.
