ASK REAL GUYS
He Wants to Be Alone
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: What does it mean when a guy says he wants space?
Avery: When a man says that he needs space, he’s unsure of what he wants from the relationship that he’s in. Sometimes a man may feel like a relationship is moving too quickly and some reassessment time is needed. Other times, though, a man may ask for space to start the process of ending a relationship. If a man who you are involved with is asking for space, you should ask him if he’s trying to figure out if he wants to continue the relationship or if he’s trying to end it. His actions after he tells you he needs space will really show you where his mind is. Actions speak louder than words.
