What are the signs that men are scared of a relationship and need space and how long before this happens in a new relationship?

Every man is different. What are his past relationships like? We all need space at one time or another so asking for space shouldn't be a big deal, unless he is wanting to just get away from you. Trust your instinct, and go with your gut feeling. Deep down we know when someone likes us, and also when someone doesn't like us.

Answer

For some men that never happens. It all depends on the maturity of the man. It sounds like you need to find someone more mature.
