The other day the boyfriend was telling me that he found one aspect of my personality particularly difficult to deal with...my independence. He said he was accustomed to "clingy" women, and that my independence was sometimes frustrating. My response was, "So, what EXACTLY is the problem???" thinking who in the hell would voluntarily sign up to deal with a clingy person?!?!? Who wants to be with someone that is CLINGY and SUFFOCATING?!?!?!? But I guess the ideal relationship finds a balance between partnership and individuality. I guess?
Thoughts on this?
