Being clingy is a relationship problem caused by how much time and attention partners give each other and how much each of them feel they need. Often times, girlfriends feel the need to spend every waking moment with their man, but boyfriends want a little private time. If you're suffering from the wrath of a clingy girlfriend, then use these tips to loosen her grasp!

The first and most important step in any relationship, but especially in the case of a clingy girlfriend, is communication. Just by talking to your girlfriend about the matter, you might be able to reverse some of her clingy habits. She probably thinks that you like all the extra attention, so just let her know you need some space. Make sure to keep these talking points in mind:

  • You need personal time.
  • You have other interests and hobbies.
  • You still like/love her.
