What is better for a relationship, to have both partners be clingy or to have only one person be clingy and the other not as clingy?

What do you think would be better for a healthy relationship, to have both partners be clingy towards each other or to have one person be clingy towards the other and the other person not be clingy but likes that someone is clingy towards them and doesn't mind? This is a debate between me and my boyfriend considering one of my friends who was wondering the answer to this question.

It would be happiest if both people are "clingy" towards eachother, or neither. If one person feels like he/she is not recieving enough affection, or that their partner is needy, it will create unhappiness in the relationship.

As long as all parties involved enjoy being clingy and clung to, then all is good, and either relationship could be successful.

The most important thing is that both people are getting what they need from the relationship. That's why it's hard to judge relationships from the outside.

either can be equally good, depending on the personalities of the people involved, this really isnt a question that can be answered with a definitive one or the other.

It really doesn't matter as long as they both love each other the same with the same deep love.

I agree that the answer is NEITHER is good. anyone who is needy should figure out what their issues are and try to fix it. Needy gets very old, very fast!!!

Clingy as in feeling the need to always be with the other person.

Well it's good to want to be with the one you love. ANd maybe if you don't want to be with the person you're with maybe you're not in love.

What do you mean not personal? I just gave you an honest opinion. Do you take this personally?

Not personally, It just seems like that comment was directed towards me. I'm just saying that this question was to resolve a debate, not for my personal life.
