Dating and a man needs space
The "one foot on the brakes, one foot on the gas" routine will make you act neurotic and over-emotional, and you won't feel in control or proud of your actions in the relationship.
I want you to feel good about yourself no matter what he does.

Don't act on them, but feel them; be a witness to them happening inside you and respect them without self-judgment.
You can also make a conscious effort to learn some self-soothing skills, so that you're less inclined to call him and are better equipped to deal with rejection and uncertainty in other areas of your life.3.
Also ask yourself if you feel, on a gut level, that he truly loves you and wants a relationship with you.
If you feel confident that he's an emotionally available man and is in love with you, then this space could be a good thing.
Or he claims nothing's wrong, but he just doesn't return your texts and seems to be a LOT busier than he was in the early stages of dating?When a man pulls back, it's natural to feel like your world is suddenly shaken up.This feeling can bring up abandonment issues and it can make us panic about losing him. We start to express love and profess devotion, and we apologize for past injustices on our part. You don't want to give a man more attention when he needs space; do this when he's trying to please you and is available to love you.Talking to him about this when he comes back to you and is more clearly available to hear you and respect your needs will give you a chance to feel empowered and will help the relationship heal.Don't make him test-out or tell him that he has to work hard to earn your trust again.
