Does a girl really love you if she says she does but that she needs time apart?
I think you deserve an answer as to why she feels you both need time apart. Perhaps things are moving too quickly for her or perhaps you are both on the young side and she may want to take time, find out who she is and what she's about before she settles down to one person. Have a talk with her and find out why she feels this way. Communication is extremely important in relationships. Good luck Marcy
