Well shit, some of these apply to me. I've been like this for about a month. Should I apologize or just drop those habits without bringing it up?

Apologise sincerely and mean it. They will understand.

NO. Don't make it a topic if it not already is one. Cut back on the bullshit and behave appropriately, maybe briefly mention it ("Sorry if I was the overly attached boyfriend recently haha").

Don't apoligize, just drop the habits. Actions mean much more than empty words. Clingyness is bad because it's annoying, just stop being annoying.

This. Also, sometimes over-apologizing is, like, another form of clinginess. Like, you're pressuring them to keep re-assuring you that YOU'RE FINE and I'M NOT MAD IT'S FINE.

It means more if you just kind of stop doing it. And you really didn't do anything wrong. As the other poster said, the absolute worst-case scenario is minor social annoyance and a gradual loss of interest in the relationship. You're not exactly raping babies out there. an apology would be overkill

What is your partner like OP? Some couples where both parties have that clingy gene actually work well together. Don't fix what ain't broken.
