Since an early teenager my relationships have failed. I used

Since an early teenager my relationships have failed. I used to be very clingy, now I'm completely opposite. When it comes to a relationship I like to have alone time...a lot, and the guys I'm with don't understand that. I simply tell them up front when a relationship starts or they think they want a relationship with me. I tell them that there are times I want to be completely left alone, that means don't call, text, or try to come see me. Does anyone else feel like this in relationships?

I think alone time is a really important part of the relationship we have with ourselves, I don't think it is a problem until it starts becoming a problem and hurting the way we function in the world. What are your thoughts? what does the group think?
