My boyfriend and I are going through issues right now. I suppose I'm not giving him the trust he deserves, and so one night, he had enough and said "it's over". Then when I contacted him, he said he just needs "space" right now... and he still called me "babe"... so I am giving him his space and he can contact me when he's ready. Until then, I'm losing appetite and trying to keep busy. Any of you guys (or gals) have gone through this same situation (or similar)? If so, how was the outcome? Thanks in advance.

absolutely been in this situation. Guys fear losing their freedom and independence in relationships. We also worry that women will keep testing us to expose our quirks and flaws... and then they will point them out in arguments.
This is the biggest reason I broke up with my last girlfriend. She wanted more intimacy but she was starting to pick up on my flaws. I really don't care to be nagged about my little quirks and shortcomings. That is why I wanted a healthy distance.
He still loves you, but I recommend you give him some space to freshen things up a bit. Whatever you do NOT nag him about his problems. It's not your job to change him.2

Space in my opinion means he needs to evaluate if he really wants to stay in this relationship and/or if he can find any better fish in the sea. Usually its not a good thing. If you keep yourself busy though and focus on yourself, and DO NOT contact him again he might come back to you. Let him come to you.1
