I have a boyfriend, and he also has bipolar disorder. His is better controlled than mine. However, he seems like he’s kind of… How do you say…?
Kind of clingy.
Let me explain. (I’ve done so on my other blog, but I’m gonna look at this from a psychological standpoint.) I am an independent young woman. I’m great in school, I enjoy reading, I’m pretty much entertained by the internet and I like to do all of these things by myself. I don’t really need to talk to anyone to have a good day.
This guy that I’m dating seems as though he’ll panic when I don’t answer a text within, oh, 15 minutes. He’ll make sure that I’m ok and likes it when I’m happy (which, spoiler alert, that’s not always the case). He wants to shower me with gifts and love and cuddles…
I’m not comfortable with this. I don’t like gifts. I want to be left alone at some points. I have to tell him to leave me alone. I just… I feel weird about it all of the sudden. I feel like he’s clingy out of fear or out of need. He needs to get over himself.
I don’t get why he’s so anxious about losing me. He’s usually not like this. And to be honest, it’s becoming a turn-off. I’m not really into him anymore. Then again, I’m not sure if it’s my depression talking. Or maybe I’m just coming to my senses.
Regardless, I’m annoyed with him, and I don’t know if I should end it. But yeah, that’s all. I just need to blow off some steam.
