He Needs Some Space

I'm in need of your help. After a night of going out to the movies and a drink after we get home, my man tells me that he doesn't feel the same anymore and that he has been feeling like this for over a year now. It's been bottled up and he exploded.

He says that he still loves me, but he is not in love with me. And that he just doesn't feel anything for me anymore. So basically he is saying that it is over.

He is done with me and we have two kids: 4 year and 2 year old. It seems like they are already acting out. I don't know what to do so I am giving him his space.

I've moved out and went to my mom's for a week and we are taking turns with the kids, but I just need to know ... do you think he will come back? He has asked me if I have found a place to stay already? Please help.

Give Him Time
by: Spiritually-Minded

I feel for you. Let him have his space and take this time to do some soul searching. Were all the signs there and you just didn't want to see it or was this a complete surprise? Sit down and have a heart to heart. Tell him how you feel and listen to how he feels. Don't read between the lines, hear, and try to understand what he says. For the sake of the kids people always say, but you are your best for your children when you are whole, focused, and confident with your love for yourself. Focus on yourself, your kids, and tell them the truth as much as possible without putting them in the middle. You can't hold him hostage and please don't pressure him.

Space, for the good of your kids.
by: Anonymous

If he needs his space, he needs his space. What you need to do is sit down with him, just you two and talk ask him what's changed and tell him he will always be in your heart. Tell him also to think of the kids. As a child with separated parents myself, I know it sucks to have them apart. Wat you need to do is talk and if he doesn't come back, don't get mad, just ask to be friends and be very close friends but whatever you do, don't make things difficult between you two. Stay close for the kids.
