Though we now know what to call these super clingy folks, and typically know what signs to look out for when entering a relationship, sometimes they manage to latch themselves to us anyway. F*****ck!! So when you've got some "Well, I thought he was cute at the time..." guy blowing your phone up and wanting to see you all. the. time., what's a girl to do?
Needy. Ugh. That one word can make any guy run for miles, and being labeled as such is every girl's worst nightmare. It's funny in the movies; we can all ROTFL when a character leaves a guy seventeen voicemails in a row ("How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days") or assumes that an invite to a party is a declaration of love ("He's Just Not That Into You"), but the reason it is so funny is because it's based in some very real, very painful truth.
Hanging out with someone new is always exciting. I absolutely thrive off those first few weeks of a budding relationship when all I can think about is the other person and wonder if he’s thinking about me, too. I love anxiously waiting for that phone call or text message after the first date that seals the deal that you two might have a future together
