DearSugar and He's Driving Me Nuts Natasha need your help. She met a guy that she really likes, but he's rushing entirely too fast into their relationship. Despite her subtle hints, he's not backing off. Do you have any tips for her?
I met this guy about three weeks ago while I was out with a friend of mine. He's a really sweet, genuine person, but after our first two dates, he was already saying "I love you." He calls all the time, and he always wants to hang out, but when we're together, he won't leave my side. I really like him, but I can't stand the clinginess. It's not only unattractive to me, but it's irritating beyond belief. I continuously tell him how I'm not ready for a serious relationship, but he still clings like crazy.
Is there a way I can tell him to back off some without hurting his feelings and driving him away? — He's Driving Me Nuts Natasha
