If you think about it, the concept of being clingy–AKA a term that’s usually used to describe someone who is emotionally attached to another person on a potentially too-intense level–is kind of a weird one. On the one hand, there isn’t anything wrong with showing your love and admiration to people you love and admire, whether it’s a friend, boyfriend, or girlfriend. They should know how you feel!
