It’s flat-out frustrating and even heartbreaking, just to hear the Gemini man say those words:
I need some space.
It’s not the end of the world though. In fact, it’s far from it. Let’s take a look at what it means when a Gemini man says that he needs more space, and what you should do in the process.
Do Geminis Like Their Space?
This is one of the most important questions when it comes to this topic, so I wanted to make sure that you understood this before you get any more frustrated about the situation. After all, Gemini men can certainly be frustrating at times.
If there’s anything that Gemini men put a big value on, it’s their overall space and freedom. So yes, Gemini men not only like their space but they require it.
This extra space will also allow the Gemini man to partake in activities that he likes. Just don’t be too worried that these activities don’t include you, it’s a part of who the Gemini man is.
What To Do When A Gemini Man Needs Space
There’s almost no way around it, but there’s only one solution that I would recommend to you if this specific scenario comes up.
When a Gemini man asks for space, you absolutely must give him the space that he needs.
It might be a hard thing to do, especially if you have a lot of strong feelings for this specific Gemini man. But if you don’t respect his needs, he will see you as clingy and that’s one of the biggest turn-offs for a Gemini man.
Why Do Gemini Men Need Their Space?
Naturally, the Gemini man is considered to be a free man. This doesn’t mean that he can’t commit to a romantic relationship, but he places a very value on his freedom and ability to be in control.
There can also be quite a few more reasons why a Gemini man might need his space. Let’s take a look at them now.
It’s A Part Of Being A Gemini Man (Mind Games)
If you feel like the entire thought of needing space can be frustrating, then be sure to take a few deep breaths. This reason usually has nothing to do with you and is more about a Gemini man doing what he does best.
- Gemini men need their personal space.
- Gemini men also like being in control (they tend to be great leaders).
Usually, the Gemini man wants his space just to fulfill his needs. He might even be using that time to evaluate the situation, but only if it doesn’t last for a long period of time.
On the other hand, the Gemini man is a master of playing mind games and he might be saying that just to see how you react. Yup, the Gemini man is about as frustrating as can be 🙂
All Gemini men need their space, that’s a given. However, there might be another reason why this Gemini man needs his space, and it’s something that you’ll have to consider as well.
You Might Be Too Pushy Or Clingy For The Gemini Man
If a Gemini man asks for more space, then there’s also the chance that a red flag has come up for him. When it comes to Gemini men, there’s nothing that they dislike more than someone who is being too:
- And they especially dislike clingy women.
Given the fact that most Gemini men are great leaders and like being in control, being needy will completely flip their world upside down. Being clingy also means that:
- The Gemini man has less space (which is why he needs his space back).
- The Gemini man is most likely stressed.
A Gemini man being stressed is also a big reason why he might be needing some space.
It’s important to take a look back at all of the interactions that you’ve had with this specific Gemini man. Start by asking yourself some of the following questions:
- Have you been blowing up his phone?
- Are you constantly nagging him to hang out with you?
- Do you like and comment on every photo that he posts on social media?
You need to be honest with yourself and the amount of contact that you’ve had with a Gemini man. If you feel like you’ve been going overboard a little too much, then it’s a good sign that you should start pumping the breaks.
How Much Space Does A Gemini Man Need?
This is always going to depend on quite a few factors. However, I can give you a ballpark range of what to expect when it comes to giving the Gemini man the space that he needs:
- Start by giving him 1-2 weeks of space.
Note: This is similar to the start of the no contact rule with Gemini men, except for the fact that you’ll want to follow that rule after a breakup. The no contact rule is great for getting over a Gemini man, and you can learn about it by clicking the link above.
Back on topic. After the 7-14 days, take a mental note of how he’s interacted with you during that time period (if he has at all). If he hasn’t interacted, you can give him a text or call and gauge how things are going.
If he doesn’t reply to you at all, then there’s a very good chance that he’s not into you.
