      It means, he needs space. Men are uncomplicated that way.

      When I've used that line, it means your not worth putting up with. So don't call me.  Don't talk to me.  Go away. 

      I'm tired of you and your petty shit.  That's what means for me.

    Usually, it means "See ya".

    Please see my post in the "One way to be married for life" forum.

    Good luck.

    Definitely "See ya" but doesn't have the nerve to say so.

    Stacie, join the 100 hubs in 30 days and get him off your mind.  The challenge started May11th.  Maybe you are not an Adam Lambert.

    Means perhaps he needs a Bigger House, and more room for his Hot new Chicky Baby. Fancy even asking the question.....It is as plain as the nose on your face.
    Give him all the space he needs by the following procedure,
    1 Cut the legs off all of his pants, remove the zips next, be as rough as you like, it aint going to affect you.
    2 Pick up the whole lot smear it with fish oil, put in Garbage Bags and place at the letter Box.
    3 Take all his other stuff and on a day it looks inclement, put it all out again by the Letterbox.
    It is perfectly reasonable, before doing any of these things to ask him for his credit card for one last Blow!
    Then he will have all the space he needs, and you will have even more. Plus there will be a considerable space in his bank account also, may inconvenience him,albeit temporarily, could even mean he only had one set of clothes for a short while.

        We are now officially Bi-Lingual, we are not allowed to say Official solely because, it separates pakeha English from New Zealand maori........... and we are now looking very hard into the spelling of Maori words, because some of them have been incorrectly penned through history and don't mean the same as they are meant to.

            I think New Zealand is addressing it matters in a Democratic way, like setting up the Land court stuff and getting rid of all the old settlers  Rip Offs that happened, but Mejicans have always been there I wrote on that forum that guy is seriously slow that just keeps saying Why don't u just tell me.

        I have done the cut off legs on my Ex after he went out drink driving, kept him indoors awhile so I had to leave as I could handle his whining........ He sewed them together so he could go to Town and buy more. Didn't do a bad job either.........

    It also might mean that he's feeling overwhelmed and needs a little bit of time ("space") and actual space (breathing room) to think clearly, with no pressure.  If he says he "needs space" he's definately feeling pressure, from somewhere.  It may be from you, it may be from somewhere else.  But if you push to find out which, you will only be adding pressure.  Give him space.  Wait for life, luck, Fate or God to deal you your next card.  And for God's sake, don't act on the advice of people on the Internet who know NOTHING about your situation.

    I agree with Shades. Even Kahlil Gibran said about marriage that  "Let there be spaces in your togetherness".

    First you can try observing what is disturbing him(is there any job insecurity or some other thing bothering him). Then create a mood i.e., his favorite meal or movie/games outing. Once he is relaxed then just have an open heart to heart talk and if he feels you are over bearing on him (calling him too often on cell or interrupting him while he is busy doing what he loves...). Sometimes things may not be as bad as we imagine it to be. Whatever it is that you find after that "talk" please go easy and take it slowly(decisions taken on pure emotion may not always be the best decisions). smile

    Just give him his space and maybe he will realise it is more fullfulling with you in it. Don't be immature, it's not pretty. Be a woman, give him his sapce and you take some time too and do whatever you want.  Sounds like he is trying to get a reaction out of you.  Walk away.  He if loves you he'll come back, if he don't he never did.

  12. Eaglekiwi profile image75
    Eaglekiwiposted 8 years ago

    I think it really depends on how honest the whole relationhip has been.
    Often one person ( usually the woman) feels betrayed and thrown aside ,hence the anger ,or alternatively she turns the anger inward and hurts herself.

    Guys need to be more honest and sure the truth hurts but dont say I need more space ,thats pretty immature. Say it like it is!

  13. cindyvine profile image89
    cindyvineposted 8 years ago

    When they say they need space, it means they just ain't that into you and don't want to hurt you by telling you that, so they hope by saying they need space, you will find someone else in the time apart and move on and they'll be off the hook.

    I am probably going to regret posting this, but this is true - I swear!

    The fact is that it is not only men who say this to women - sometimes, ladies, it is the man who is the innocent party. Believe me - I know!!!

    It means that he/she is a bare faced liar without the courage of their own convictions to simply tell the truth. It is all very well to make pathetic excuses - that is simply all they are. Making this comment is simply the first pathetic admission of commiting adultery or its effective equivalent.

    My advice to those who say this is (whether they be male or female): go and jump off a cliff you lying cheat - you will have plenty of space then!

      Naw, sorry--the phrase is context specific and really depends on the situation.  (And really, really seems dependent on the poster's bad experiences here, actually.)

      Could mean, though, that a woman (b/c it's absolutely not gender specific) just needs to get the hell away for a while to go sit by the ocean and think.  Which has nothing to do with anything evil--just space--because honeslty too much domesticity and togetherness can clog one's mind.

      And why, why is it always assumed men need 'space?,' plus that adultery thing?  It's sooooo--clingy.

      How was that for political correctness?  wink

      1. Eaglekiwi profile image75
        Eaglekiwiposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        I think there is a huge difference between hey I need some space to clear my head a bit ( most of us do that automatically) without the drama of "I need some space" which I believe the post was about ,correct me if Im wrong...

        too much domesticity and togetherness can clog one's mind.
        It sure can ,too much of anything can clog ones mind...
        So can too much b/s ,and as far as it being a gender issue , yes , but men seem to ask for it more ,thats a fact ( and it was a 'he' refered to in the post0

    Ah well, there is a saying in the UK, "In for a penny, in for a pound!"

    Now I know that I am really going to regret posting!

    My ex and I moved from one part of the UK last summer to another. In the process of our move, I tore the Trapezium muscle in my left shoulder. Believe me, that hurts like Hell - you can neither sit down nor lie down. I was swallowing God knows how many painkillers a day plus a lot of single malt!

    Only much later did I find that the immediate "work meetings" that had instigated "our" move became a case of her lying with her legs in the air in her "colleague's" hotel room! I later found out that this began five days after our move while I was laid up in agony.

    The absolute truth here is that I am no angel and never have been - but one thing I can do, ladies and gentlemen, is hold my hand across my heart and say that I am not a liar. I have never cheated like she did to me and obviously now never will - as the chances of me ever getting involved in another relationship are equivalent to those of Scotland winning the next World Cup!!!

    Ah, GH...  Give it time....lol, and space.  The best you can do.  Also to say--in the end it isn't worth your feeling lousy for decades or anything, really.

    And absolutely, women cheat--I actually know of more women in my immediate sphere who have cheated--not men.  It absolutely is not just a guy thing.  I think (and sorry to say this, though I think it is true) women just talk about mens' infidelity more.
