Girls, Is my girlfriend too emotionally dependent on me?

My girlfriend and I are both 15, and we've been dating for 9 months. However there is a problem. She's super dependent on me and at times she seems clingy. I have to text her all day and respond quickly or she's upset. We see each other every Saturday, but during the week she acts as if we never see each other. she'll be "depressed" and sad because she misses me. Then if I don't show the same level of emotion towards her she assumes that I don't care about her, despite me constantly telling her how much I care about her. When I can't see her on the weekend she gets super depressed, and at times I feel like she's guilt tripping me even tho she swears she isn't. I tell her that I won't be able to see her every single weekend, and sometimes things are out of my control. She'll often say things like "I can't live without you". She also tells me she wants to "be with me forever", then proceeds to ask me if I feel the same way. If I don't reply with yes, or an answer she deems satisfactory, she gets upset. This reaction usually leads to an argument. I try explaining to her that I'm only 15, and I don't see myself deciding who I'm going to spend the rest of my life with when I've barely started it. These things combined with other factors are stressing me out, and I feel that a relationship shouldn't affect a person the way it's affecting me. I've reached my breaking point and I need advice. What should I do?

  • I think you should sit down and talk to her about how you feel. I was the same way when I was a child. I think she is too emotionally dependent. I would advise telling her that she needs to focus on the here and now and not worry about each others future basically just live life.

  • I hate to say it but I think ur girlfriend is crazy. I'm also only 15 and I hunk it's too much to be asking a person if he wants to spend his whole life with you. You guys are at the age of finding out who you are not who you want to be with forever. I think u should talk it out with her and if she still doesn't get it, then dump her.

  • Why the hell are you still dating her?
