Book Blog 13: Clingy Girlfriend Syndrome

My son and his friends have an acronym for guys who are being smothered by needy girlfriends. It’s “CGS,” which stands for “Clingy Girlfriend Syndrome.” Some girls are so needy for attention and affirmation that they cling to men like plastic wrap to a piece of raw meat. But women who try to quench their neediness through relationships with men are usually left feeling parched and dry. In this Girls Gone Wise Video Book Blog, you’ll find out that there’s a far more reliable way to satisfy your heart’s deepest thirst.
