How can I be a better partner?

My partner and I have been dating for a few months, we work together and spend some good quality time together most weeks. We are starting to notice that I have people pleasing qualities, and he feels people pleased and would like more space. My question is how do I give my significant other more space when I still want to spend time with him? How do you find a balance in relationships where people don’t have the same want match as you? How can we both use the model to meet each other half-way?
