Life in the Fastened Lane
I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year, and I love him, but I also love my independence. I need alone time, meaning space from him and everybody. He wants to spend every minute together and seems to need constant closeness to feel okay. Is this a bad sign – on his part or mine? Should I want to spend every second with him?
The sort of relationship where the partners are never apart tends to be a good thing for only one of them: the tapeworm.
