I think clinginess isn't good for my depression

I got a girlfriend a few weeks ago and we recently had a date. But both of us have depression and I have a feeling that we'll cling to each other. I'm more sensitive and I'll probably be more clingy. Any suggestions to help me feel closer to my girlfriend?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • I think allowing her to be clingy and supporting her would help you to take your mind off your own depressive feelings. Oh yeah. Lots of sex will put you both in a better mood. ;)

  • I think it's understandable that two depressed people would cling onto each other, but I also think that eventually they would get on each other's nerves.

  • I don't have anything specific, just try and stay in control of yourself and watch out for it. I think generally, if you think you're possibly being clingy, then you definitely are. It's one of those things where it's like, 'if in doubt, then yes'.

    But if you both really like each other, would it really be a problem? I mean, maybe it's just me, but if a girl I really like is on the clingy side, I actually don't mind it so much. I kinda like it sometimes, in a weird sorta way.

    So..eh, sorry this is a rubbish answer. But I'm not really sure what the main goal here is. To feel closer without being clingy?
    Try not to lose yourself, I guess might be the main thing. Remember you're an individual person and you don't want to be consumed by the relationship. But I'm not sure if that's exactly what you're asking.

  • The woman I love doesn't enjoy clingy and needy, which I am.
    She will probably dump me soon.
