Having a clingy friend is just as bad as having a clingy significant other. We all want someone who loves to be around us and feels like they need us, but too much of that gets overwhelming and annoying fast. Having a friend text you constantly, show up wherever you are, get jealous about anything you do without them, and refuse to give you space is not fun at all. But since a best friend is someone you share everything with and see all the time, it can be hard to figure out the fine line between being super close or just being super clingy. How are you supposed to know if you’re a clingy friend who is driving everyone crazy?
I find myself texting my best friend whenever something funny happens, or if I’m having boy drama, or if I need her advice about something… or just to see how her day is going. That’s what close friends do! Sometimes I worry that I’m being clingy, and so I back off a bit to give her space. It’s important to keep in mind that, like you, your BFF needs space and is free to have other friends and hobbies that don’t always include you. And you’re just as entitled to do the same. So, let’s end the speculation once and for all. Take this quiz to find out if you’re a little too close and clingy to your BFF. Good luck!
