But I still don't get why, can u elaborate? If u can I'm trying to understand
Because he is fighting a battle within him: to stay or go back with you or cut it off for good. He is trying to weigh if staying or leaving will make or break him. If he has no feelings left, he will tell you to just stop talking to him forever. But if he asked for space, then he is trying to process things.
Okay so I shouldn't call and ask what he wants to do?
Give him space. Cut all contact please. The more you pressure him, the more he will run away from you and shut down. Is that what you want? Trust me I have been there done that.
I know that's not what you want to hear but it is the only way right now. :(
How does this pertain to my question?
Well if you are being beat by him, and you leave then run back to him, he won't respect you. I may have also misunderstood your question.
Yea I'm not in an abusive relationship
Then why would he not have respect for you for wanting him back?
That's the question I'm asking
I think that's why I miss understand. That phrase "he will lose respect if you keep going back to him" doesn't apply to your situation.
