Space isn’t a bad thing. Quite frankly it is one of the factors in every relationship that you need to have. You have to be secure in yourself as you are in the relationship and thats why I probably shouldn’t be in one at the moment. Space is one of those things where you need to do things alone to tell your significant other about. You need it to keep the relationship running good. No one can bare the other all day everyday.
You need space from your friends because lets be real.. we all get annoyed way too easily. Give it time, talk your time there is no reason to rush anything. Just make it good.
