Spending A Lot Of Time With Your SO Doesn't Mean You're Clingy

It means you love making tons of memories to last a lifetime.

Spending A Lot Of Time With Your SO Doesn't Mean You're Clingy

We all love spending time with friends, right? Right! So why is it okay to spend tons of time with your friends, but its looked down upon to do such with your SO (in this article SO will refer to significant other).

Many people assume (yeah, I said it) that those who spend a shit ton of time together only spend that time together because: 1. they don't trust each other to be apart or 2. they are too scared to spend some time alone. They never think that maybe just maybe they enjoy spending every second next to their SO and cherish it.

To those that spend a lot of time with their SO: YOU DO YOU BOO BOO. If you enjoy (mutually) spending every possible waking moment together then good for you! Because of this you will make tons and tons of memories and will eventually know every single side of each other. I applaud you for that.

If you find someone that you love more than anything, someone you want to spend every moment with and want to spend those moments with only said person, then do it! If there is no one that you want to be with more than the love of your life and if they are the love of your life then there is no one that they want to be with more than you.


Wow Leslie, say if for those in the back.


"Clingy" for the longest time has been viewed as a very unwanted attribute in someone that could presumably destroy any interest given in the person. This is what you tell someone when you want to send them to Nothankyouville. I don't think anyone WANTS to be seen as clingy. However, in today's society, the word is tossed around too harshly causing many people to be incorrectly defined as clingy. If this is how you show your love, then so be it.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with loving your SO the way you do: be true to yourself. Be yourself all the time, if you're "clingy" embrace it! Just because someone doesn't want you the same way you want them doesn't mean that everyone will agree with that and it certainly does not mean that there is something wrong with you. There are tons of people who are clingy and even more tons of those who love and will love your clinginess. Remember this: YOU ARE NOT MADE FOR EVERYONE, AND YOU ARE NOT MADE TO LOVE OR BE LOVED BY EVERYONE. You are made for those who appreciate and love you.

Be yourself. Be clingy.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
