Post leaving gf alone, giving her space, etc.. help!

i was just given advice by my parents, and that is.. basically to sometimes stay away from my gf, 'give her room', meaning dont call her, dont talk to her too much, all that.
that was just about the worst advice ever. my dad was saying that i should not appear like i need her, or that the only thing important in my life is her. now, yea i guess i understand that, but its SO hard.
ive never liked a girl as much as this one, and we are so close right now.

specific example: right now we are both going to driving school. ive taken one more class than her, so she has to go alone. i told her that if she wanted, i would go with her to the one class to keep her company. now when i told my parents this, they gave the above advice.

is this true? i mean.. yea i guess it has to be true. but i almost feel nauseous when im not with her. and it sounds lame probably, but im only REALLY happy when im cuddling with her. so telling me this advice was like hitting me in the stomach, and i dont know how to handle it.

what should i do?

If you're going to do that, make sure you do it slowly and don't give her the impression that you don't want to be around her anymore. So often do guys do this and give their girlfriends the impression that they don't like them anymore, and they don't really care. That's the worst. If you want to give her space discuss it with her so she won't be clueless.
