I need to be alone right now.... →
Say you're a person who needs a lot of alone time. But say you spend a lot of time with a person who isn't an "I need down time" person.
When it comes to blows, when you really need to spend 48 hours by yourself and you have to extract yourself from this person, how do you phrase it so that the other person isn't offended? (And assume that the other person would automatically take it the wrong way.)
This is hypothetical, by the way. Just something I've never really figured out.
