- Does he often choose to go out with “the boys” to places where you are not included?
- Does he have a long list of short relationships? Because if he has, yours may be the very next one to join his list.
- If he keeps mentioning that he needs his space, take it seriously as another sign that he is not thinking about his commitment to you.
- Also take note if he starts to complain that you are too demanding without being sufficiently specific. But make sure that he doesn’t have a genuine case against you before you are tempted to accuse him of being unfair.
