When He Asks For Space - Does It Mean Your
Boyfriend Wants To End The Relationship For Good
When your boyfriend says he needs space, it can make you wonder what he means.
Does it mean he wants to end the relationship for good or does he just need some
time to himself? Actually when a guy asks for space, it can mean many things. The two
most likely are that he is taking an easy way to breakup with you or there could be a
more devious reason.
Your ex boyfriend might be wanting to keep you as his backup girlfriend. He will call
you now and then to see how you are doing and give you hope. But you will only be a
safety net for him. He will be out having fun and dating other women while you sit
around waiting for his call. As long as you play his game, you will never get him back.
Keeping up your hopes is a cruel thing for him to do. You would have been much
better off if he had just ended the relationship for good. That might have made you feel
bad for a while, but you would not feel used. If you still love the guy when he asks for
space, you have to let him have his wish. But, that does not mean that you have to sit
at home and be his backup girlfriend.
You had a life before you met him and you can pick up that life where you left it. Spend
more time with your family and let their love and support rebuild your confidence. If
you had a hobby, renew your interest in it or start a new one. The main thing is to stay
busy and not always be home when he calls. When he has to leave messages, he will
wonder what you are doing.
The reason he thinks he can use you as a backup girlfriend is because you were too
available. You were always there when he called and never late for a date. That
caused him to take you for granted and led to him asking for space.
You need to show him that you can have a life without him. If you have been missing
most of his calls, he is not feeling so sure of you anymore.
Now you need to pull his safety net out from under him. Show him you won't be there
to catch him when some other woman dumps him. The way to do that is to make him
think he is losing you for good. Go out with your friends and have a good time. When
he hears of this, your ex will understand why you have not been taking his calls.
He will realize that a lot of other guys would be happy to have you as their girlfriend
and he might lose you to one of them. He will begin to feel alone and left out in the
cold. His safety net is gone and he might be losing you as well. Suddenly his plan of
having some space will not seem so great anymore. That will put all of his attention on

psychology to make him love you like never before for what you should and shouldn't
do. You can learn more about pulling your ex back, using the no contact rule, making
