Is it normal for a couple to have zero personal space?

My girlfriend and I are insanely comfortable with each other. We have nearly zero boundaries in our day to day life and it seems to work well for us. More often than not, when one of us goes to the bathroom, the other will stand right outside the open door, or if we're pooping, the other one will sit down and we'll continue to talk or look at memes or watch videos. When we sit down next to each other we look like we're practically glued together. When we go out shopping we hold hands at least 98% of the time. We shower together, cook together, eat together, sleep together, even when we play video games separately we're usually touching with our feet. We've even joked that we could be handcuffed together with a chain that was maybe 3 feet long and barely notice. The thing is we're both super clingy people so it doesn't bother us at all. We've spent weeks together essentially attached at the hip. If I'm being honest, I kind of love it. Is it normal to be this close?

  • No because you don't eat eachothers shit. Once you do that then maybe.

  • Interesting how you close by saying you "kind of love it". That hedging suggests you might not like it as much as you claim.

    If it works for you two, that's the only thing that matters.

    I couldn't deal with someone like your girlfriend. I've always found that having some space and time on my own allows me to better appreciate my relationships, but that's irrelevant, as is what any of your friends may think of your relationship.

    You both need to be aware that things might change in time. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it can be if one of you decides they need a little distance and the other continues to need clingy.

    • I'm understating lol. I really love being close to her. I'm enjoying it for now but thanks for your input about things changing over time. I hope we'll be just as happy and comfortable then too.

  • How new is this relationship? That all sounds very obsessive and boring to me.

    • We're about 5 months in now. I'm hoping I'm with her for a long time though.
