If He Says He Needs Space... 😔🙍💭
Don't freak out the second you hear your boyfriend say he needs space. I know the statement has a bad rep, but it doesn't definitely mean he wants to break up. Before you go into panic mode, start trying to figure out what is really going on here. Jumping to conclusions will only make things worse.
Think about the circumstances: are you two hanging out a lot? Do you guys see each other every day? If you're not together, are you on the phone or texting? Have both of you stopped hanging out with friends to be with each other?
The only way you can know anything is if you talk to your boyfriend. Try to figure out exactly what he wants. Does he just want to hang out less? Or talk less? Or does he actually want to go on a break? It's important for both of you to be honest here so that you can establish some ground rules.
This isn't just about your boyfriend - it's about you too! If you both want to make the relationship work, settle on something you're both okay with. For example, give him an extra day or two a week to just do his own thing.
If you agree to give him some space, then you actually have to go through with it. Nothing will push a guy away more than smothering him to try to keep him. Don't text or call as much. If you know he's going to be with his friends, leave him alone.
Put a positive spin on things: this is a great opportunity to spend more time on yourself. Use this to your advantage of spending your new space with your friends, doing a hobby, working on productive things, or just relaxing.
This needing space thing probably isn't going to go away in a few days. If you're willing to work on the relationship, give this time. Be patient with your boyfriend if you think it's worth it. Let him do his thing, and you do yours.
If, at any point, you become really unhappy and miserable, talk to your boyfriend. If this isn't what you want, you don't have to do it. Don't agree to space or anything else just to make him happy. Your happiness is important too!
