My girlfriend said she needs space. Does it mean that she's breaking up with me?

Our relationship is just 2 months old. We had good times together and I did not see any signs of problems when we were together. Recently she has been different. She no longer tell me that she loves me. But we still communicate and share stories about our day. She told me it doesn't matter if she say I love you or not. I told her that it matters to me. After a few words she said that she is confused. She did not say that she no longer loves me, she just said that she's confused and needs space. I told her that it hurt me badly but I understand. That was our last conversation. What does it mean when she said that she needs space? What should I do for now? Is it time to move on? or Should I relax and try to wait and see? If I have to wait, for how long should I wait? Please help...I really love her so much. She's my first real love that's why its so hard for me. I'm 23 and she's 20 years old.

I am going to be completely honest. I am a female, therefore, I think like one. Usually when a girl says they need space, they are breaking up with you in the nicest way they can. I'm not saying that you won't get back together, but give her time alone and you HAVE to act like you don't care. Trust me, that will make her want you back more than anything. Since the relationship has only been going for 2 months, maybe you were moving too fast for her and you were making her feel a little uncomfortable. Show her that you can give her some room and maybe she will want to again have a relationship with you. I wish you luck!

Hello princessem, thank you for the response. I see, so she is really breaking up with me. Oh man. I was expecting that she just needs time to think if she's making the right decision before she tell me that its over. I'm afraid to act like i don't care I might lose her that way. But still i will follow your advice since you're a female. I don't know how to tell if we were moving too fast though. One thing i observe about her is that every time i try to talk to her about an issue, she try to avoid it. How can we clear things if she try to avoid them? thanks for the luck. i'm gonna need it. ok i will give her the space she needs but until when should i wait and move on? it might take a month but it could also mean forever...
