How do you "back off" in a relationship? My boyfriend and I have just recently had some issues and he admitted that he thinks that we see each other too much. Admittedly, we see each other every day. We often cook dinner together or just hang out and do homework.

I hate to admit, but I've become too clingy and made him too much of a priority. So how do I back off, do my own thing and not miss him as much while doing so?
How do I get my independence back?

I have been told this a couple of times by a few guys I've seen. I'm not so clingy any more, luckily. In my case, the best thing to do is to keep yourself occupied with plenty of hobbies and make your own goals. Perhaps having a "date night" would work too. Take this opportunity to connect with friends and family more often as well.

I honestly dove myself in to work and doing things like I used to, I.e. Hang out with my friends, go traveling, read books. Do movie nights, but cut down seeing him to at least 2-3 times a week instead of everyday, otherwise things go too fast... And limit calls and texts too, it's hard, I've been there but you'll adapt. It takes time and a lot of will power. Good luck!
