I read in Men are from Mars, Women from Venus that men are like rubber bands, they pull away sometimes for no reason.
Fast forward 6 months, now I don't want to be alone (that much) anymore. We need to get away and get back to ourselves, and after we think we've regrouped, we're ready to dive back into finding a partner. It's like those magazine articles that claim to have both men and women figured out.
In this case, maybe I am like a rubber band, but I know a few females who are the same way.

I was tired of being nagged, tired of arguments, tired of being made to feel guilty if I refused to run an errand she didn't feel like doing (and I'd done more than my fair share of errand-running for her). I needed some "me" time, and a lot of it, so I respectfully broke it off with her.
And then they come back when thier need for autonomy is fulfilled. (Or women who have observed it.) please give examples. Or do they maybe just come back when they need some s*ex?????? Some emotionally healthy men DO want this, and are capable of handling the responsibility with the care and attention it needs. In fact, the idea that men and women don't need each other is a direct response to feminist independence, a philosophy that tells men that women don't need them, men are disposable, and we men should stop trying to fill a woman's needs. But there has to exist a balance in this and it should never dip down into the clingy, needy type thing or it is unhealthy - that's the kind of need that I was referring to.

It IS very draining when you have to be everything to her. He had a really sweet girlfriend, very pretty too, but she would not let him breathe!
