A woman tells you that she needs space. Your inclination is to back off and give her just that. BIG MISTAKE. She doesn’t want space. She wants understanding. The problem is that she wants you to figure that out on your own and you are not a mind reader. That’s where I come in. I’m letting you in on a secret. If a woman says that she needs space by all means do not get in your car and drive away for two hours. You are likely to get a hearty helping of silence when you return. If, on the other hand, your girlfriend, wife, etc. says that she needs a little time for a specific activity then that is a different ball of wax. She may just want you to know that she has something to do and you would do well to assume that she means what she says.
