SPACE
Since I met this guy 3 weeks ago we've been talking a lot every single day and nite. We've been out a lot to. All of a sudden the last three days (we went out on saterday - no problems) he's been phoning less and less as well as smss. He's not feeling well as he has flu but I don't like this.

Just phoned him and while talking he mentioned something about giving each other SPACE is a good thing.

What is that suppose to mean ?
How must I react ?
Just sms or phone when receiving ?

I really feel that any relationship that starts off in an explosion of SMS and calls, has a major handicap to start with. The poor guy's got flu --- isn't he allowed to have a rest and recover ? No wonder the guy feels in urgent need of "space" --- you're overcrowding him, smothering him, and being terrifyingly needy. Give him space, and room and time to breathe. Encourage him to rest and to look after himself, and be prepared to re-start the relationship less hectically. And I'm with HS --- offer him a nice bowl of chicken soup, rather than a demand for any SMS.
