A ‘friendliness’ makes social interactions more pleasant.
However, being overly friendly can be troublesome for your relationship. As your boundaries are unclear.
This nature leaves your partner with nothing but worries, doubts, and insecurity.
You should look for signs when someone close to you says, “You’re being too friendly.”… as that might warn you of someone taking advantage of you.
8 Signs Of Over-Friendliness That Bothers Your Closest
It’s just in your nature to be friendly to anyone you know or just met.
Clearly, you might not have a secret advantage to take from others, but others may.
This your nature keeps your partner worried, advising you to limit your friendliness.
Probably because you’re too friendly to anyone without need.
1. You easily trust others, even if you have just met them.
This comes naturally to you the same way as most nice people.
Many times, you overly trust others. You don’t think any further, but be friendly anyway.
This often leads you to overshare yourself with someone you barely know.
And if that person isn’t right, they might use you and treat you badly.
2. You try to be around someone most of the time.
Maybe you just see someone as the right person to be with.
But being constantly surrounded with the hope they care about you, isn’t happening all the time.
Because of your overly friendly nature, you might annoy someone else or make someone suspicious of you.
Despite someone ignoring you or not paying attention to you, you continue to stick around.
Which indicates that you’re being too friendly to her.

3. You’re more of a people-pleaser.
It doesn’t matter what others say or what they want, you always agree with them.
When it comes to expressing your original opinion on something, you feel hesitant.
If you feel the pressure to be nice, you treat yourself unfairly. All because you think of others as more important than yourself.
That shows you’re overly friendly to others for no good reason.
4. You can’t reject or deny someone, even when you want to.
Saying no to others is breaking your heart before theirs.
There’s too much concern for others, but you don’t care about your own choices.
Your friends and colleagues might already be aware of this and use it to get what they want from you.
It is due to your overfriendliness that you don’t want to upset others by saying the truth or rejecting some ideas.
But, you secretly sacrifice your choices.
5. Your parents and nearest and dearest warn you against being too friendly.
When a close friend, family member, or partner warns you about your open nature, it’s not out of jealousy, but out of concern.
It’s not apparent to you, but you’ve a happy-go-lucky personality.
But, there are still few bad people around to take advantage of you.
Plus, because of your over-friendliness, you trust others easily, and you fear those who genuinely care about you.

6. You have to hide something from your partner.
Of course, you’re loyal to your partner. They don’t question your feelings either.
However, being friendly makes you nervous to mention your opposite-gender friendship to your long-distance partner.
It bothers you to think that such bonding will certainly raise suspicion in your lover.
Particularly in a long-distance relationship, you might try to keep your BFF identity a secret from your partner.
Because you’re too friendly, and you don’t want your boyfriend or girlfriend to feel insecure.
If so, It’s also important to understand that you’re an over-friendly person.
7. You’re not selective about choosing friendship.
Basically, you befriend with everyone without much thinking.
When your group admires this quality, that’s great.
However, you shouldn’t give the wrong people the chance to influence your mood and feelings.
Without clear boundaries, the wrong people can test your limits and make you do things you don’t want to do.
Because they know you’re overly friendly and ready for anything.
8. You are no more than ‘just a friend’ to everyone.
Maybe that is the reason why you’ve not found your love so far.
You’re everyone’s friend and even your crush can’t see you the way you look at her.
When you’re being too friendly, you might be friend zoned by your most love interests.
While this is sad, you should also recognize that your overfriendliness is one of the reasons holding you back from having a romantic relationship.

Why Is Being Too Friendly A Problem?
Firstly, from the above signs of an over-friendly person, it’s clear why your nearest people are concerned about you.
There’s no problem being friendly to others, but it is when it’s too much.
Neither everyone is the same nor do they see you the same way.
Some might admire you for your nice nature, while to some it’s a chance to take advantage of you.
Your closest friend or partner who warns you about your friendly nature tries to save you from such negative people.
Knowing whom to trust and how much to give someone always makes sense.
Whatever the reason, having a clear boundary is essential, whether you’re seeking the approval of others or just being over-friendly as is your nature.
In the absence of this, negative people can manipulate, use, and hurt you.
The above signs of being overly friendly can allow you to limit your friendliness, and keep your trust in those who deserve it.
