Many women also believe that the ‘space reason’ is another way to escape commitment issues. While this may be right in many instances, sometimes giving your boyfriend space is the best thing that you can do for him. It is also important to realize this early, so that you don’t have to wait for him to say those three dreaded words – ‘I Need Space’.
If you find him acting weird sometimes, and he tries to stay alone or prefers doing his own thing rather than spending time with you, it is probably a sign that, now more than ever, you do need to give him space for his and your own happiness. Here are some suggestions to do it right.
Don’t be the over-possessive girlfriend, and give him space to do his own thing. Also don’t make him spend more time with you, doing things that he actually hates, by just making him feel guilty. Try to be a cool girlfriend, and more importantly a friend. For once, empathize with his situation. In time, he’ll surely return the favor, and be more than happy to allow you to spend more time with your gal pals.
Neither you nor your boyfriend will ever understand these quirks, but showing that it is alright to have them is important for a long-lasting relationship. Remember, not all hobbies need to be productive, sometimes they just need to make you feel happy.
We all deserve a little time to ourselves and hate running on a timetable. Give him some time alone to miss and appreciate your presence in his life.
