    Ok, so me and my boyfriend just ended up having a minor argument via text, and I was just wondering if I'm right to be annoyed.

    Basically, he's gone away for the weekend, was ill but feeling better, I was asking if he was gonna go out;

    Him: Well its a floor party, can't avoid it. Won't drink much but I'll hang out with them all... hope you're not mad at me or anything for abandoning you...
    Me: No, it's cool... miss you though! x
    -couple hours later-
    Me: That last text was kinda your cue to reassure me that you miss me too :p: Hehe, nevermind
    Him: I already said in my last text that I miss you, but yeah I still do! You still ok?
    Me: No, you didn't... but okies. You having fun?
    Him: No need to get arsey, i've said I miss you loads, I've texted you loads- when you were busy on Thursday you never contacted until I did first, so don't be mad
    (On Thursday I had to switch my phone off for part of the evening cos my friend's mental dad kept ringing me, but did text and phone later)
    Me: When the hell was I arsey?
    Him: Just then lol, and the last 2. Chill, I'm allowed to be away for a couple of nights, whilst still texting loads! Again, please don't be mad.

    The suggestion that I'm not ok with him being away for a couple of nights, being arsey etc. kinda pissed me off. Am I being overly clingy with my texts or something?

    It's one of those stupid arguments that couples have for no real reason. Apologise to him, he'll apologise to you, you'll both feel stupid and have make-up sex later. Sorted. :p:

    Hah yeah you're being overly clingy and picky. Don't start fights out of anything and everything. Its not healthy. Give the guy some latitude. heres an example " no, you didn't...but okies " . Im not saying its really that provocative but...even if he didnt, try pointing it out less, you were kinda asking for a fight there. Even tho im NOT saying your wrong and that you caused a fight, im just saying stop pointing out those things :P it usually causes fights over nothing. Usually, just ignore em

    No offense but I think you're a bit in the wrong. You did get a bit arsey and you sound a bit clingy, just chill out a bit and hopefully he will loosen up a bit too.

    On reflection, you should be more concerned about your friend's 'mental dad' who keeps ringing you - what's that about?

    Yeah, based purely on the above you come across as clingy and like you're just picking on things.

    To be fair getting annoyed at me for being clingy is a bit rich from someone who rang me up twice in the middle of the night because he had a dream about me cheating... but yeah, I should prolly go and apologise.

    Hahaha!!! OMG lol !! Alright so ur not the only one who's clingy. Still you should both try and stop being clingy. Also, dont apologise, not in a situation like this. You were both in the wrong, But it wasnt that big of a thing. Just let it wash over. Don't bear any resentment to it. Just forget about it and act normal.
