How to cope with a clingy partner

The word clingy could be synonymous to closeness, tied, attachment e.t.c. Therefore, who is a clingy partner or what does it insinuate to say that one is clingy? 

 A clingy person is one who needs an undivided attention of one to match his/her own interest.  Anyone can be clingy in a relationship, for it is not centred on a particular gender, not at all. But the question is this, ( does your partner finds your clinginess accommodating?). This brings us to our topic title;

How to cope with a clingy partner

Here are proven steps taken to cope with a clingy partner:

  • Know your partner’s wants: when around your partner and when not around your partner, you should know his/her demand/wants from you, and then sort out a means to attend to them. This would ease you off the burden of getting amazed at their usual habit of wanting. 
  • Don’t always attend to their wants: Yes. clingy partners are always wanting you to do things to match their interest. you should set limit to their wants/desires and definitely they would adapt to your say on doing things based on necessity and not just on wants. 
  • Define your communication style: clinginess of a partner, starts basically from level of communication. A partner desiring to be phoned, texted, all the time. This is nice because it depicts that there is care and love amongst you both, but humanly possible, it is not fair. Yes because too much attachment breeds over-familiarity and over-familiarity they say breeds contempt. Therefore you both should best define your communication style, knowing fully well that a day or days miss out on call or text doesn’t mean you are not having them at mind. 
  • Show them perfect love, even at distance: perfect love at distance is a loving act. this would let your partner know that, love isn’t only shown by being attached by your presence.
