What to do? my boyfriend asked for space.? Since we started dating, we never spent a day apart. I was jobless for a month so i practically lived at his place. Recently, he started school so he has work + school now.. He was distant eversince he started school, so i freaked out on him and asked him whatsup. he just told me that we both need space, and that we should see each other every 2-3 days so we will miss each other more. He told me that i need to stop overreacting when he doesnt call or text me the whole day or when he goes hang out with his friends. I just dont know how to deal with the whole space and distance thing. I keep freaking out because I think he will drift away. I don`t know what to do, to get my mind off it. I want to be a good girlfriend and support his dreams. He said that he just need to get his priorities straight and this is his dream and he has to work hard to pursue it, he cant always be there for me. and I have to get used to it fast. He said when i overreact, it puts unnecessary stress on myself and that doubles the stress for him when he already has so much on his plate. i have so much free time on my hand that thats all i think about. I keep waiting beside my phone for him to call me or text me and when he doesnt, I freak out on him. I know clinginess is a turn off. I dont know how to work on it. Im starting a new job soon but im not going to school, so all i think about is him..
