Normal or full of sh%t..?
My bf craves and gives and excessive amount of attention..it's come to a point where we actually had a fight about it yesterday, the relationship is still new, but this excessive amount of attention it's beginning to affect my normal everyday routine and even my work routine..we both had abusive relationships in the past and realize what we have in each other, but I just cant help thinking that because we / i dont even have time to do the normal things - cleaning, washing..ect (and as i'm a perfectionist this is making me unstable), which leads to things spiraling out of control..am i just being a total ass for fighting to have my time... what can i do to make things right..he's very angry with me at the moment, not one phone call today, not even a sms IN REPLY...

If he is really too demanding of attention, this may make this relationship unpleasant and eventually intolerable for you, and indeed for others too --- he should see a good local CBT-style counsellor and work on this problem. And if you are similarly afflicted, maybe you could benefit from this, too ?
