I have found if a woman can feel safe when she is a little bit crazy and clingy, as a man you should count your blessings.
Why? As a guy, you will be in a one helluva ride.
Since you live on the central "American" corridor (Dakotas to Texas i.e. the US-35 ride), where I am at has the largest Casinos in the US (Winstar). The folks in this area from what I have found (men and women) are super nice, the native Americans are fantastic.
But why this share? I found out after we moved here it was Reba McIntre's home area (I am not a country fan but I get her a lot more now). Also, it is where Gwen Stefani spends her time (on the Lake Texoma lakes).
The most important thing men and women can do together is balance that crazy, and cool, and balanced and fun and nuts and angry and chill in equal gendered viewed balances.
To me that is the most important thing to go with the raw positive individuality and lust. As for nuts, some guys laugh with women before the smirk and fighting smile before the angry blow up is very damn cute ...
