Make sure he has space to approach you: for example, you could stand by your girlfriend’s side rather than be surrounded by half a dozen of your besties. You overanalyze his social media activity Facebook stalking someone you like is normal, unless you’re doing it far too often.
Chris*, a freshman at the University of California, Los Angeles, once had what he thought was a casual hook-up with a girl, Anna*, who then got attached.
If you receive this kind of message, take the hint and put an end to the conversation (or lack thereof). Try to space out your texts and make sure you have a valid excuse to message him, or he might get put off and stop answering. Christine Hart, a dating coach based in Toronto, explains that “generally, being clingy and being insecure go hand in hand.” Instead of focusing on this uncertain relationship, focus on yourself and your hobbies.
Hart’s best advice is to “develop your own schedule and your own interests.
But try to minimize how often you do it, because it could mean you’re too desperate.
“Sometimes I'll check their page to see if they’ve had any activity after they read my message and to see if they’re responding to other people,” Charlotte adds.
Jealousy is another sign that you don’t trust your guy enough.
It also puts you at risk of acting clingy, like Evan’s girlfriend, who “was convinced that all of her friends had crushes on me, so I wasn't allowed to talk to or hang out with them.” She was so insecure that she tried to control him, and this should never happen in a healthy relationship. You’re too accommodating For Smith, one of the most foolproof signs of neediness is being “constantly at their beck and call.” This is especially destructive because some guys might even use your insecurity to manipulate you. Don’t always feel like you have to call him back immediately.
Agreeing with everything he says, giving him little gifts and cards for no reason or simply being too nice to him when he doesn’t treat you as nicely are just some of the signs that you’re trying too hard, according to our experts.
“It makes a guy undervalue you, and it leads to a vicious cycle,” Mendez warns. If you value yourself, he will do whatever it takes to get you.
Bernardo Mendez, a relationship coach for women, explains that the girl usually makes the first move anyway, using subtle body language.
If you look kind and open, interested but not desperate, even a shy guy will naturally feel drawn to you.
This becomes a problem if you get so stuck worrying about their life that you can’t get on with your own. Jenna*, a junior at UCLA, is well aware of this: “I tend to not like guys’ posts more than once because I’m scared it will come off as clingy and annoying, unless they like all of mine.” If cyber-stalking its compromising your independence and making you anxious, you’ve gone too far. You don’t trust him If you need to know what your guy is doing every second or you insist that he joins you everywhere you go, these are red flags.
