You want your partner's space but you’re not sure how to do it? This is an art that every couple needs to master.
Be upfrontIt’s not any easy topic to discuss because of the way he’ll react but hiding it from him is also not on.
Act on your partner’s concernsAssure him that you’re not doing this because you want to break up with him. You just need some time alone.
Don’t turn it into a fightAccording to relationship expert Bob Alaburda, “it can be stressful when someone doen’t give you room to breathe but it doesn’t need to blow up into an argument.”
Be specific about your needsYou must express how much space you need, and when and why you need it so that your partner will understand better.
Choose your words wiselyWhen it comes to this kind of situation, you have to be careful with your choice of words.Talk in terms of your own feelings and be kind and respectful.
