I'm curious to see what people have to say about this. For me it is calling/texting/emailing too much, never giving the other a chance to have a life outside of the relationship, being very untrustworthy, etc. What are your definitions of clingy?

That's how I see it. Contacting them throughout the day and suspecting the other is always upto something no good, suffocating, preventing them from having their space. I would make a slight distinction on the contact though. Clingy is demanding constant communication, not necessarily simply sending a message every so often in the course of a day. When two people have very different schedules they can often find they just send messages when they feel like saying something/they have a thought about something, those messages are not chat requests. They don't represent a need to chat that very second or for you to drop what you're doing to respond. Some people don't like to message when they know the other's not around, others think nothing of sending a message when there's nobody there. I can see how it would look the person receiving the messages however. A message every few hours can grate on a person and it can come off as clingy even if it's not and the sender is perfectly at ease. Point taken though. Some people are like that when they're not used to being in a relationship.0
