I've been seeing a guy I thought was really great for a few months now, and we were pretty much exclusive from the start. He's been going through a lot recently though, and we had a bit of a spat (about silly stuff) and he sent me a message saying:
I think we should not talk for a little while. I still like you more than anything but I don't want to see you get hurt. I really apologise if I've hurt your feelings but I think its best for now.
I tried sending him an iMessage telling him I'd respect his space etc. but it never went through... either because he switched off his phone (he's skiing in the Alps right now) or because he hasn't had reception... though I know its probably the former. Ordinarily we'd talk / text daily but now its been two days, which feels like an eternity.
So, guys (and girls) - was this a breakup or just an 'I need space'?

It sounds like a break up. Not replying and not giving you the opportunity to have a decent closure is a dick move though, sorry if that's not my place to say. I just know how it feels and well, it's selfish.2
