Why does a guy need space in a relationship? It’s a question that has baffled women for years. Who needs space when you’re in love, right? Yet your guy is one of the men who have said he does. It’s hard not to take it personally. After all, the last thing you want is any sort of space or distance between the two of you. But he does and it’s not something you can ignore or make go away with the wave of a magic wand. It’s real and it can feel devastating but it doesn’t have to be that way. Instead of seeing his desire for space as the beginning of the end of your relationship with him view it as a second chance to make things better and pull him closer than you ever have before.
Once you understand why a guy needs space you can then deal with it head on and with full insight and knowledge. Typically men say they need space for one simple and painful reason. That reason is that they’re no longer happy in the relationship anymore. Something isn’t working and before taking the drastic step to end the relationship, some men request a bit of time for themselves. They may use this time to build up the courage to dump their girlfriend or they may actually come to miss her so much that they beg her to come back. The difference in how your guy reacts has a lot to do with how you handle yourself.
You have to try your best to keep your composure when your guy says he needs space. Getting upset is natural but it’s not going to help you in any constructive way. If you have to take a few days for yourself to cool down and collect your emotions do it. You’ll be grateful that you did because showing him that you’re mature enough to handle a shift in the dynamic of your relationship will help him to see you in the best light possible.
What most men expect is for their girlfriend to come apart when they say they need space. They anticipate a very dramatic confrontation complete with tears and pleading. Show him that you’re better than that. Tell him that you’ve given it some thought and you want him to take the space he needs and you’ll do the same. By going left when he expects you to go right you’ll be reclaiming your own power in the relationship.
If you leave him with the impression that you’re going to be fine without him that will haunt him. He’ll start to imagine every possible scenario of why you were so quick to let him go and that alone will make him reconsider how important space is for him right now.
There are other crucial steps that every woman needs to take if she wants to keep her boyfriend. Doing the wrong thing can mean the end of the relationship forever.
Don’t give up on him if you believe he’s the man you are meant to be with. There are specific methods you can use that will make you irresistible to him again.
