I have to say, Generation-Y has a sh* tty way of dating.People have become accustomed to being in constant communication withtheir significant other, and that has made some of us a tad bit obsessive.
Its okay to be obsessed with your significant other, but its not okay to be a clinger.Being a clinger is a bad position to be in because it can cause major problems for your love life.
Being a clinger is becoming a social norm in todays society because of the ease at which technology has allowed usto constantly know what someone is doing, read, feeing, listening to, etc.Here are three ways to know if youre the clinger in your relationship
1. Your Phone
Relationships are taking a toll on us when it comes to our beloved cell phones.Your phone has literally everything this is necessary, but with that comes the start of the addiction to your SO.
If you catch yourself doing things like this, you’re a clinger
1. You have his or her photo as your background.
This could be cute if youre in a long-distance relationship, but if its a painting exclusively of your SO, whom you consider every other day, you have reached clinger status.
2. Youre constantly checking your phone to see if your SO has read or responded to your text.
Im guilty when it comes to this one.If I’m saying something important, I want fast replies.
I get very impatient while waiting for a response.I guess I can be a clinger at time.
3. You check to see when your SO was last on his or her social media accounts.
You go through the “following” tab on Instagram to see if he or she has liked any pictures.You see when he or she last favorited, retweeted or tweeted anything on Twitter.You go across your stories to see if he or she viewed it or posted anything.
Basically, you do anything to make sure he or she hasn’t done something on social media before he or she responded to you.
