Interesting! One of the priorities Fiance and I have put when we are looking at homes to rent is having enough “individual space/mancave.” We ended up renting a place that actually used to be two apartments but because of zoning they combined it, but there’s a very distinct upstairs and downstairs. Obviously it’s all “our” space but it gives me my own office and craft area and him his own workout/mancave/whatever area where neither of us have to be accountable for how we keep it.

We love time together, but it’s very important for us to get our alone time too. So I totally believe what this says!

I absolutely believe it. I love him, but I don’t need (or want, frankly) him in my pocket all the time.

We’ve been long distance for over a year now and I am absolutely certain that our ease and comfort in being our own people separate from one another and our ability to cope apart from one another has made the situation far more tolerable than it often seems to be for some people in this situation.

oh yeah I TOTALLY agree with this!

I like the analysis of the connection between infant/parent in relation to the need for proximity to the one you love…. that totally makes sense too!

I’ve been in a LDR for the past 7 years and those come with LOTS of times of extreme space and togetherness so my guy and I have developed a great taste for our own space and we give each other lots of it…

You know what they say, distance makes the heart grown fonder!

Letting each other have space is great and completely necessary!

I agree.  Me and my husband recognized early on in our dating relationship that we both enjoy our “me time”.  We love each other very much but we would not make it if we spent ALL our free time with each other.
