need 'me' time urgently
I have this problem. I have met this really nice guy and he is everything I have ever wanted. We have been seeing each other for 2 months now.
The problem is that I am fine for the first month with a new bf i.e. I am interested, want to see him all the time, affectionate, etc. However, now everything seems so mundane.
When I am single, I had a lot of time on my own and I really enjoy my own company. Now, I have none of that and I miss it. I am hardly at home and do not even have the time to do my admin, never mind having some 'me' time. What do I do?
Do I tell him I need some time on my own? I am scared that he might think I need a break from him, which isnt the case. I feel that if I was given more space, I would be more interested in spending quality time with him. Any suggestions?

Why not discuss this with him, and work out a plan where you each enjoy time together as well as private, "me" time ? You can make it clear that it's not about wanting a break from him, but for variety within the time you are with him
