I was dating this guy for 4 months. We hit it off realy well. About 2 months into dating he told me he wasn't emotionally ready for a relationship. At that time I wanted to take things slow so this wasn't an issue for me and I told him "that is okay for now, lets see how things go and just have fun with it". About 1.5 weeks ago he signaled he needed space; I somewhat gave it to him (come on being honest). About 1 week into hime needing space I tried calling him 2 days in a row (I needed to talk to him about a mutual friend VERY IMPORTANT) with no response and eventually got mad so left him a voicemail stating I thought he needed time to be alone and I feel that I wanted to give it to him becasue all I wanted was his happiness. I realize that the message might have come off as more angry than caring especially since it was left on voicemail. I now realize (3 days later) I made a mistake and instead of ending it I should have just given him space.
Can I get him back? How should I proceed?
I tried to keep it brief there is more to the story if you need more info ask.
We were never "in a relationship" but we were exclusive (yes we had this specific conversation)
