My boyfriend and I have been going through a really rough patch where he thinks he wants to be single and wants to do his own thing. He wants to be able to do whatever you want without checking in. I've been nothing but good to him and I know he's not cheating on me I've already researched that. Anyways, he wants space and I told him I'll respect that space but I am having such a hard time. It comes in waves where I do really well and then other I Get weak and I text him and we're back at square one .. I don't really know what space is.. oh and it's only been two or three days. I had a weak night last night.. so I'm back at square one.
am I not allowed to text him?? how long should I give him space for before I try to contact him?? I am new to this and I'm having a hard time controlling my emotions. I don't want to lose him.. I love him and want to be with him...
before this rough patch we were amazing. He made all these little promises and I know this sounds cliché but he got me a promise necklace. And a month ago he wanted to propose to me. And three days ago he said that he can see himself marrying me and how he loves me and how I am his best friend..but he needs space.
I feel like he's punishing me. I feel neglected and abandoned and I feel like the space is just another way to get away from someone for good but then I read articles and they said that it will bring you back together stronger. I'm a confused emotional heart broken girl.
I feel like I'm being punished because I wasn't the nicest to him when we went to Mexico together but that was over a month ago. And I apologized.
I am Not looking for advice how to move on or let it go.. that's such an easy answer.
I'm looking for advice how to get through this whole space thing, how long people typically give each other, and how to get my boyfriend back to normal.
I went as far as deleting his phone number in my phone. We don't have Facebook and he doesn't have Instagram so that's good.
