Lets say you have amazing chemistry and physical attraction towards someone you're dating, man or woman, but you're not yet exclusive.
Would you continue to date them if they began to act slightly clingy/needy/desperate?

I don't see why not. I actually enjoy the attention when they are slightly clingy. It helps show how much they care. Anything can be taken too far but as long as it is only slightly then it wouldn't be a problem. It just means they are putting more work into the relationship than they would otherwise be doing.0

No, I would not date someone who showed signs of slight neediness and borderline desperation before we became exclusive. I live a certain type of lifestyle where that behavior would ultimately become a daily problem because I'm constantly on the go with work, traveling, hosting events, planning events, being at meetings for work or the creative collaboration I'm apart of, and dancing *rehearsal time, focusing/harnessing my creativity and passion into that activity for hours at a time*. I'm the worse person for someone needy to date because I often don't have the time available in my schedule to be there whenever they want. I don't always respond to texts or calls immediately because I am busy and away from my phone. So them being needy and desperate would become a nuisance to me and make me feel smothered. It wouldn't work out.1
