Arielle: -My bf and I have been together for 3 years, he always want my time and attention and to be around me 24-7. What is the best way without hurting his feelings to tell him that school is important to me/career so I need some space to focus?

DY: There really is no way to tell a person who’s into you that you need some space without hurting their feelings. But, if you’re honest about why you think you should scale back a bit, if he cares about you and the long-term future of the relationship, he should understand.

I have a question for you, though. Do you really want the break because of school, or do you just kinda want a break?
