Why we say it: We donâ€™t want to be labeled â€œclingyâ€ or â€œneedy.â€
Why this is a problem: Itâ€™s not â€œcrazyâ€ to expect communication from someone youâ€™re in an intimate relationship with. And by calling ourselves â€œcrazy,â€ weâ€™re not allowing our needs to be met.
If itâ€™s only been two hours since date #1, yeah, you might want to calm down. But if itâ€™s a couple of months in and youâ€™re not happy with the amount of communication youâ€™re getting, itâ€™s totally OK to consider that the problem isnâ€™t that youâ€™re crazy, the problem is that this may not be the guy for you.
