For many people (including myself), that level of togetherness would feel smothering... and I LOVE spending time with Chops. I still like to have time alone, though, or with my own friends and interests, nurturing me outside of the "us".

It also reminded me of this SNL sketch. (Warning: site is probably blocked by many workplaces, although the video is SFW)

Many people find this type of thing undesirable (hence the popularity of the "Overly Attached Girlfriend" meme), so I'm not sure how easy it would be to find someone with the same desires. Not impossible, it seems, but difficult. I do recommend you be up front when dating someone, though... such behavior can seem pretty stalkerish if people aren't expecting it, and it could potentially get interpreted fairly badly.
Dramatis personae:
Me: Divorced with 2 kids, 2 cats, fish, a tarantula, and a 1930s house with many projects.
Chops: Partner of 6 years, lives half-time with me, half with Xena.
Spinner: Friend I've been on a few dates with. Divorced, Mono, wrapping his head around it all.
Xena: Chops' other nesting partner of 6 years
Curls: Chops' partner of 1 year

Supporting Characters:
Choplet: Chops' son
DanceGirl: My oldest daughter
Pokégirl: My youngest daughter
