When in a relationship the time may come when there is need for a break. Long or short, sometimes both of you simply need a breather. While most Vixens may ignore that internal alarm, men will listen and take off. Literally. Men are different creatures, ladies, so ditch the rose-colored glasses and peep the hints he’s leaving. They’re not as subtle as you think.
Clearly spelled out, here are four signs that will let you know if your man needs a little more him and a little less you…
The Disappearing Act
When it takes him two days to call you back or return your text message, you should take note. In relationships, we often get used to constant contact with our partner. When there is an unexplainable shift in this communication it may be time to reevaluate.
The Delayed Reaction
Your man should jump at the opportunity to hang with you. If you notice that your dates are falling by the wayside and your plans together are being canceled left and right, chances are he just wants some of his own “me” time.
The Bad Mood Blues
We all have our bad days, but if your boo seems to be moody every time the two of you are together, he maybe subliminally asking for space. If it seems like nothing you do pleases him, same thing. Back it up.
The Buddy Act
Hanging with his friends should be something normal in a relationship. But when that becomes more of a priority than you, then he’s obviously saying he doesn’t want to be around you.
The need for space does not signify that your relationship is heading towards the dumps. In actuality, it’s a pivotal moment, that allows the two of you to define how much time is too much, and if the relationship is meant to continue. If this world were perfect, then we would know the proper amount of time to spend with one another without being smothering. And in a perfect world we wouldn’t have to look for signs to tell us what should be verbalized. But this world is far from perfect, and these signs are here for a reason, take head and love smart.
