Spending too much time together - how to get more "me" time? watch

    Anon because person concerned uses TSR

    This is a different type of problem: I think my gf and I see each other wayyy too often (it's eating up my time and energy and I have so much else to do). What are some strategies/excuses I can use to get more time to myself? - apart from phrasing it like that, I've had that discussion before and it works for about one day then goes back to normal.

    Why don't you organise things (such as going out with friends) or asking for some "you" time because you need to sort x and y out and it will be boring for her...

    Keep doing that and she will hopefully start to see a pattern emerging, when you do see her, say things like "time apart is so nice because I get to miss you"....
