You're an enigma, a strange combination of amiability and detachment. You're everyone's best friend, yet does anybody really know you?
You need space - to think, to wander, to dream, and to absorb life's sometimes hard lessons. At times that means distancing yourself emotionally and physically from others.
Space gives you (and any partner) time to breathe and center yourself so you can return as affectionate as ever and ready to forgive and forget.
Take care that your alone time doesn't lead to isolation. You can have a partner, spend quality time together, and still respect one another's independence.
