When hanging around someone for a long time, do you end up getting irritated by them at some point for no reason? ex:(b/f, g/f, friends, wife, husband?)

Everyone needs some personal space.

I have found that Even a soul mate can grate on nerves if there is no personal space.

I think everyone needs some private time and time for significant others,so if you don´twant to become iirritated let them be free and let ourself be free too.

My answer is yes. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, space is amazingly important. If someone is bugging you, get away from them for a bit. It’ll probably do wonders.

space could also be found in gently identifying and expressing the very thing that annoys you… i’ve used this tatic with an overly chatty co-worker when i couldn’t get away.

Totally! My husband has learned not to take it as an insult if I tell him to go out without me – it’s just me needing a bit of time and space to myself.

You just have to find a good balance of together time as well as alone time. The best relationship is the kind that you can sit in the same room and not say anything without it being uncomfortable.

My husband and I try to give each other space on the weekends while we’re both home. We take a few hours to do our own thing before doing something as a couple. Otherwise, we start getting on each other’s nerves after a while.

Everyone needs a little alone time.

Let me add one more yes.

everyone needs some alone time to reflect on life.

Too much time with anyone will result in some kind of conflict may it be minor or major.

Of course! No matter how much you care for a person, they can become annoying if you spend too much time together. Everyone needs a little room to breathe now and then.

I get extremely annoyed and sick of people if I hang out with them too often. I think it’s just part of my personality though.

Unfortunately, I also have a tendency to want to hang out with someone every second of every day if we get along really well, but then I end up getting sick of them eventually.

It’s a vicious cycle.
