Girl Friendship Trouble

My DD is 9 and is finishing 3rd grade. She really likes this girl in her class and has played with her outside of class as well. I know the girl's mom and like her very much.
The problem? My DD tends to smother this girl (sit by me at lunch, sit by me at library, play with me at recess....). The girl will finally say, "no, I want to sit by so-and-so" and my DD's feelings will be hurt.
I have seen her do this with other children in the past and have tried to explain that people don't like to be smothered but she doesn't understand.
I know she is looking for that one "best friend" but I don't really remember having a best friend until middle school.
How can I get her to stop being so intense?
