His new girlfriend is very sticky/gummy. She is trying to "badger with" or "stick to" him 24 hours a day.


Are they all correct? If so, which is better in this situation? Thank you.

    I'm afraid they're all incorrect, Jokaec:(

    His new girlfriend's very clingy: she tries to cling to him 24 hours a day.

    There's no such thing as badger with:cross:

    To "badger" a person usually involves some level of hostility, animosity, or, at a minimum, annoyance. It is similar to nagging but more aggressive. If that is what you had in mind.

    I don't know if you have badgers where you live but they are known for being very difficult creatures to deal with. :D
