Is your SO distant or smothering?

Mine acts distant when down, but really wants affection, and almost smothers me if I'm sick or not feeling well.

  • Distant. Always. I would like to smothered occasionally but have learned to live without it, sadly.

  • Mine is hispanic. Their natural instinct is to be up under their women....GOD forbid we spend any hour apart unless it's for work related reasons. I'd love some time to myself! But instead of getting some me time when the kids are sleeping or gone for the weekend he's demanding all the attention he feels he misses out on when they're home.

  • He's a perfect balance, IMO. Though he could be more verbally affectionate from time to time, rather than just physically affectionate, lol.
