When you’re in the right relationship, it should feel like there is almost no such thing as too much time together. Almost. But even couples who have that type of crazy, once-in-a-lifetime kind of love you see in movies like “The Notebook” still need some time apart. At the end of the day, everybody needs alone time. No two humans can possibly get along 24/7, always having their moods, needs, and wants sync up. It just doesn’t happen. No matter how bonded you are, you’re still two separate entities and sometimes, you just wont vibe. This can especially happen when you live together, and even both work from home. If you have a similar or almost identical social circle, then you may barely be apart. It’s okay to admit when you need time apart. The real fights happen when you refuse to admit it and stubbornly stay in the same room when you’re about to explode. Here are signs you and your partner need time apart.

If you both want to cook or get ready for bed at the same time, it’s no longer cute or fun—it’s a nuisance. Every time your elbows so much as graze each other while brushing your teeth or stirring your food, you want to yell, “Can I just have this space to myself for ten minutes?”
