It can be incredibly confusing.

He’s texting you less, seems unhappy all the time, and then suddenly tells you he “needs space”

What does that mean?

… is he trying to end things?

… does he really just need space?

When women hear a guy needs space, they typically rush in to try and fix things.

In this video, I explain why a guy might say he needs space and what you can do about it.

This might just be one of those guy things, but it always sends women into panic mode.

After you watch this video, you’ll know how to handle it when a guy tells you he needs space, and why he’s saying it in the first place.

Summary –

There’s nothing more frustrating than when someone you really care about starts to slip away. When something feels like it’s breaking or slipping away, people naturally want to fix that problem.

But as you probably realized, interpersonal relationships are much different. If a man needs some space, you can’t just go over there and say three magical words to get him back. Love doesn’t work that way. Relationships don’t work that way. You need to learn how to understand where he’s at and where he’s coming from.

A common reason why men need space or start to pull away is because they’re really stressed out. There’s something stressful in their lives like their family, or maybe it’s something with work. Interestingly enough, men and women react quite differently to stress. For example, men who are stressed out become more self-centered, want to get back into their own space and deal with it on their own. Whereas for women, the exact opposite is true. Women want to feel closer to the people in their lives when they’re feeling stressed out.

When he asks for space, I recommend you give him a gap week. If you start feeling him pulling away or creating space for himself, give him a week to figure it out on his own. Of course, when you talk to him or text him, let him know that you’re there for him but don’t push him to see you or do anything for you.

Let him know that you’re there for him, but give him time to work out things on his end. Give him his gap week. If after a week the problem continues to persist, it’s time to have a real conversation.
