If you like someone, it is possible that you try to spend as much time as possible with him or her. However, beware, because your well-intentioned intentions can become very irritating as soon as you come across as intrusive. Therefore, avoid the following signs of intrusiveness.
Appointment is agreement
Do not try to force people to commit to an appointment unless it is an important occasion. If you invite someone to do something, they don't necessarily have to give a definitive answer right away. Uncertain people sometimes try to make it as difficult as possible for others to cancel, but this way you are very intrusive. So give them the space to cancel if necessary. It is not the end of the world if they change their plans.
It can be very annoying if you chat with someone online and always have them respond very quickly. However, the opposite is not so nice either. If you always respond immediately, even if, for example, you see that they are typing more, you seem intrusive. Also, try not to let a conversation go on forever, but give the other person room to end a conversation. The same applies to oral conversations. Do not try to interrupt the other and give them room to leave if they have something else to do.
It goes without saying that good friends can get together when they are need advice. However, it is not a good idea to give regular advice to someone who does not ask for it at all. Sometimes your friends just want a listening ear and nothing more. By constantly coming up with advice, it can seem as if you are trying to steer someone's life.
