  • Just say it's a woman thing. There's not much a guy can say about this. :)

  • well first of all do you have kids? either way tell him you need your space everynow and then and that you love spending tie with him but sometimes you want to do girl stuff like do your hair , nails, shopping etc...

  • This is THE BEST WAY. explain all the things you want to do alone, bakini wax, manecure, shopping, hair, a whole bunch of stuff he'll hate doing. but don't tell him you don't want him there. guys would rather die then come along on those outings, oh n tanning. lol.

  • I don't think it is wrong but I also don't think it is something that should cause arguements unless it is the way you are putting it to him and what you are doing with your alone time. Maybe he is insecure and thinks you are with someone else.

  • He feels threatened by it. He thinks your alone time may turn permanent. Any time something like that changes in a relationship, it is very normal for the other person to feel threatened or worried. Sometimes the SO get suspicious about the alone time too....I would geta bit suspicious if my SO was all of a sudden requesting a bunch of alone time. It would hurt my feelings.

    Just being the devils advocate here....

  • I'd go nuts without my alone time. He needs to listen. You know what you need.
