Whether you are crushing on a guy or you are already in a relationship, there are some obvious signs you are too attached to your man. Even if your sweetheart is obsessed with you, your actions could be downright bad for both of you. After all, you don’t want to end up getting hurt, right? Take a look at this list of the most obvious signs you are too attached to your man and that you have to take a step back in your relationship.
1. You are too focused on him
How many times do you mention your guy’s name when you are out with your friends? That’s fine, if you have some fun stories about him. However, if you tell pointless facts about your man that are not relevant to the topic of your conversation, there may be a problem. If the information is important or interesting, your friends will be glad to hear about him. But if they tell you that you are too focused on your guy and that they are tired to listen to your stories about him over and over again, it’s a warning sign you are too attached to your sweetheart.
2. You feel depressed without him
It is fine to be sad when you haven’t seen your sweetheart for several days, but you cannot base your whole life around your man. You should learn to survive without him around. Don’t put your happiness in your man’s hands, otherwise you might end up hurt. If you want to live a happy and fulfilled life, you should take charge of your happiness.
3. You expect him to contact you every 5 minutes
When we are close to a person, we tend to expect them to contact us every single day. But, you shouldn’t expect him to text or call you every five minutes. Both of you have lives outside of each other. One of the sure signs you are too attached to your man is that you cannot go an hour without hearing from your lover.
4. You can’t go a day without him
If you can see one another every day, that’s awesome. But, if your man makes other plans from time to time, you can’t really get mad at him. You need to realize that you are not the only person in your man’s life. Just like you, he needs time to see his friends and family. If you cannot go a day without seeing your boyfriend, you are too attached to him.
5. You are moving too quickly
If you have been dating for a few days or weeks and you are already planning your wedding, this is an obvious sign you are moving too fast. Sure, every woman likes to imagine what it’d be like to settle down with her man, but one of the biggest mistakes we make is expecting a proposal right after we start dating. While some people get married after only dating a month, others take their time. Rushing things will only scare him away.
6. You always cry over him
If you cry every time you go home or leave his house, though you know you will see him tomorrow, you are definitely too attached to him. There are certain situations that really warrant your tears, but you shouldn’t be upset about leaving. Be happy that you had a wonderful time with him.
7. You are too jealous
If you see your man with his ex or a pretty coworker, it’s okay to get jealous. But, if you are jealous when he spends time with his friends or parents, there is an issue. Jealousy is a common thing in a relationship, but you shouldn’t allow it to overwhelm you. If you are stressed out by envy and jealousy, you are either too attached to him or you are with the wrong man.
While it’s great to be attached to your sweetheart, sometimes it’s dangerous. You should realize that you cannot always be with him and learn how to be happy when he is not with you. Are you attached to your man?
