Spending more and more time with your partner is a surefire way to trigger a multitude of arguments and disagreements. From not taking the trash out to spending too much time in the bathroom, your little habits will create big dramas if you spend too much time together.
Conservation is drying up
If you only ever talk about work and banal things, and you feel that the spontaneous and fun conversation has totally dried up, then the solution could be trying some time apart to pump some life back in to your relationship.
You are distant
Although you spend lots of time together, you never really actually interact and do things together. You can’t remember the last time you went out to eat or even did something fun together. You are essentially living separate lives.
You barely text
The cute text messages stopped a while ago and you barely talk when you are apart simply because there is nothing to say.
PDA is over
The spark has definitely gone and aside from a sweet little hello kiss, you barely even snuggle. Giving your partner some space will inject some affection in to your relationship.
Little things are bugging you
Little things that ordinarily wouldn’t annoy you are suddenly bugging you and wearing you down. If you can no longer deal with your partner’s signing in the shower then you need to give each other some space.
You feel suffocated
If you spend so much time together that you actually feel suffocated by your partner then you need some time apart. Not being able to be yourself in a relationship is really unhealthy.

Spending all of your free time together will more than likely have a negative effect on your relationship and may force you to start thinking that you aren’t right for each other.
