when a certain unnamed person tells you that despite everything you've ever done for them they just need some time away from you even though when her car broke down two hours away from anywhere you drove all the way over just to find out that she wasn't pushing down the clutch enough and then you follow her all the way back to her place but she doesn't even invite you to spend the night so you drive like three hours back home and then the next day you find out that she's been seeing some other guy and you tell her you really don't think it's fair that she would do that which really sets her off and she starts screaming at you about how you always smother her even though she's the one that always comes crying to you at 2:00am in the morning when you have classes the next day but you stay up talking anyway and end up doing really crappy on your final exam and having to retake CS401 which is your LAST REQUIRED CLASS TO GRADUATE so you have to stick around an extra semester and you end up missing a job oppotunity and the whole time shery is busy making out with your friend but you never even knew it was your friend but now it makes sense that the whole damn time she was just playing with you to get to him and goddamnit shery HOW COULD YOU DO THAT TO ME AFTER I SPENT SEVEN HOURS OVER THE PHONE HELPING YOU WITH YOUR PROJECT AND NOW I HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT BUT A GRUNT POSITION AT BK BECAUSE I MISSED MY CHANCE AT THE GREATEST JOB EVER AND YOU WON'T EVEN RETURN MY CALLS EVEN THOUGH I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU WHY, DAMNIT, WHY!?!?!!

A Break when your girlfriend thinks that she needs time away to sort things out. Which is total and utter bullshit. It really means she is too scared to get serious and she just wants to show her ass and whore herself to as many dudes as possible cuz she's just like that and she swears thats not the case but you later find out that while your just jerkin off, she makin out with other dudes. Then you realize you don't need this shit and you grab ur balls or whats left of them and tell her that we should just be friends(really means you broke my heart you dirty bitch now you will play my game) and when you do break it off she will say thats sucks and feel really stupid and blow ur phone up and she will ask you why u cant it be the same like it was and u say NO POCKET BULLSHIT and get back ur swagger and then you ask for your gifts back cuz she's got a new man and she will get so pissed and you say you don't want her mind to stray like it did when we where together and she will be really mad and thats what she gets and she will realize she lost one. and tell her ur not one of many.
Perfect Example:
She might write u cuz she can't face u cuz she knows she wrong: but read on

So I just wanted to write you to tell you that I still like you but I think we should take a break. Everything we talk about is still true but I think I need some time to get myself together before I got to serious because at first I wanted to jump right in but now I think I want to not jump into a serious relationship just yet. So we should still talk and stuff, I hope you can somehow somewhat understand where I’m coming from and not like throw me out completely, like its just a break you know? Like I don’t want to like give up, so YEAH. I think you know how I feel and you know I’d do this so I hope you wont be mad and you’ll understand. Please call me.

And that came from my ex ^^^

The real "urban" definition is to leave quickly, run away. it's not all this, "we were on a break" you guys are thinking too literal.
Let's break!
I broke outta there with the quickness...

When a couple decides to spend time apart without actually breaking up. The duration of the break is decided at the time the break begins. During this time their is little or no communication, and the couple spends absolutely NO time together. It is considered rude and nosy to check on the other persons whereabouts or activities and neither person has the right to do so. "Breaks" are usually taken after a number of problems within the relationship become to serious for the couple to stay together. Instead of braking up it allows for the opportunity to sort things out and to think about the relationship with the possibility of getting back together. Sometimes breaks are used as an excuse for one person to date around without having to give up the other person. In some cases the parameters of the break are established in such a way that neither party is allowed to date or spend time with someone whom they are sexually attracted to. If the break doesn't include such a rule, then it is each person's option to date and ''see other people'' as they choose. If this is the case then neither person needs to account for their time or actions to the other person in relation to any part of the "break" even after the break is over. Essentially the idea of a "break" is to momentarily cut all communication that isn't absolutely necessary so there is time to think and decide what needs to happen next: brake up for good, or get back together.
John: I think that we need some time to think about things and decide what it is that we really want. We are miserable right now and maybe time can help us figure it out.

Jane: Ok, lets take a break then.

John: Ok. Do you wanna talk again in a month then?

Jane: Ya, I think that would be good. Maybe dating some other people would help us too. I mean don't get serious with anybody but just go out.

John: Ya thats a good idea. I'll call you in a month and then and we can see where we are.

Jane: Ok. Bye.

John: Bye

Break 1. noun; to tell your girl/boyfriend that you pause your relationship to "sort things out". it usually ends in a beak-up, because it is a lame excuse to get with another girl/guy on the side for a quick hook-up.
After the date, Pam and David went on a break. That same night David slept at Stephanies.
