It can be difficult to remain level-headed after an argument.
We tend to get emotional and irrational when we get into heated arguments.
The more intense the argument was, the more likely he will need time and space to recover from it.
The keyword here is “recover.”
The chances of him recovering from the argument and coming back in due time often depends on how long the both of you have been in a relationship.
If you have been together for a short period of time, you are on shaky ground because you haven’t established enough of a foundation in the relationship for it to survive a heated argument.
Hence, the likelihood of him not coming back is stronger than if the both of you are in a long-term relationship.
However, what you shouldn’t do at this time is bother your boyfriend.
You shouldn’t start calling or texting him incessantly.
It’s crucial that you understand this.
To do this will only set him off even further and may cause him to either decide to leave the relationship or take longer to recover from the argument.
You don’t want him to have constant reminders of the argument.
That is the goal here.
Give him time to separate himself enough from the argument that it begins to dissipate into the recesses of his memory.
Giving him this time to be by himself and take some “me” time is good because it will also allow him to reflect on all the good things that the both of you have going in your relationship.
This is naturally what happens after he has had enough time for the bitterness of the argument to dissolve.
This is why it is so important to give your boyfriend this time and try your best not to contact him in desperation.
He will have to see the good in your relationship.
The only way he will be able to see this good is if you allow him the time to reflect on it.
Then he will be back and your relationship may become stronger than ever as a result.
So, it is important that you don’t panic.
Panic will only cause you to do things that may annoy him.
It may also make you so stuck on what is going on that you don’t continue to engage with others in a positive way.
This would only make you that much more desperate because you would feel isolated and desperation would turn your boyfriend off.
