Met new guy. He needs space. Are we done?

Unread postby Ocguy » 13 June 2020, 02:32

Hi:
I met a great guy just before Covid-19 started. We hit it off really good and we became exclusive boyfriends recently. Unfortunately he is going through a rough personal family matter that cause d some distancing between us. I’ve tried to tech him with no success. Recently he sent a text message and said everybody is understanding and I’m the only one giving him a hard time. He said he was a little bit annoyed and asked for some space. He also said there is a lot going on in his personal issue.
I’ve never been asked for space by anyone. I am not sure what the need of space means. My intention was to figure out why the distancing and not to create chaos. He never said why he distanced but I knew that he had a lot going on in his personal matter.
Let me know your thoughts.

Give him the space he needs to clean up those problems he says he has. Once the issues get solved he’ll probably come around.
Why are you?

Yep. I told him the same. Wish I’d known he wanted quiet time during this. I hope he is not done with me.

It might be just space, but I'd start looking elsewhere, just in case.
