I've learned not to be over the years.

Yes very very much so, I don't keep it under control. It is what it is, if he doesn't like it leave and I'll find someone that does like it.

He was very into it in the beginning...which led me to believe he was like me lol. Wrong!!!!

Absolutely not. Unneeded affection really bothers me and makes me nervous and anxious.

I like it a little here and there (my husband and his family are very affectionate and my husband is affectionate towards me), but growing up, my family has always been the "I love you" family, but weren't over the top.

My husband's mother drives me insane. She thinks if I don't call her daily, don't "like" or respond to things on Facebook, etc., I hate her and don't respect her and I'm ungrateful. I just don't get it...she's OVER the top with affection and love and hugs and kisses and it makes me want to scream. I'm not rude by any means, and I hate confrontation which makes the situation worse.

Whatever's the literal exact opposite of affectionately needy, I'm that. Excessive affection irritates me.
