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!?!?!!

In pool, to hit the cue ball first, and break the triangle of balls. Usually determines whether a person is playing stripes or solids.

Also means to give change for a large bill.
1. Brad's gonna lose anyway, so you might as well let him break.

2. Kathy: I need your $3.50
Cj: Can you break a ten?

when a girl puts all her love and effort into a relationship, and a guy simply blows her off by saying "you dont vid chat me every night, even though you're at college." when said guy expects the girl to say "i'm sorry", even when she has no idea what she did. when the girl is expected to send the boy packages and letters and say i love you every 5 seconds. basically, a break is employed when an immature guy cannot handle a long distance relationship, but doesn't have the balls to say just that - that he is unable to handle such a serious committment.
taking a break is: "taking time off to sort things out because i can't take this anymore"

When a guy is being danced on by a girl at a club or party and he cannot keep his composer and starts to become noticeably aroused. It is very embarrassing if you don't know the girl or when she stops dancing other people can see that she 'broke' you.
Most guys get broke the first few times they ever get wallies, lapdances, or grind with someone but learn how to control themselves and focus but sometime if they are extremely attracted to someone they still get broke.
Guy 1 (at party): omg i want to dance with that girl over there she looks so good

Guy 2: go dance with her! she gave like 4 guys wallies she'll give you one

Guy 1: no cause she looks so good she'll break me and i dont want anyone to see. Im just going to dance with her friend, she's pretty but not bad enough to break me.

Girl 1 (at club): i broke that boy over there sooo fast omg i know that must have been his first wallie and his friend got broke too and the song had just started

Girl 2: i dont know girl you look mad good tonight i think you could break anyone of these guys in here

A short reprieve from your duties at work. Usually 15 minutes in length. How many of them you get depends on how long your shift is and/or company policy.
I'm going on break ... be back in 15

A time when you tell your boyfriend (or girlfriend) that you need some time to figure things out. This does not mean, contrary to every guy's thinking, that you are with someone else. If you are with someone else and you are asking for a break, you're a cheating, indecisive whore. This is, instead, a time when you think things have gotten too serious too quickly, or a time when you have some serious shit going on, and need time to figure out what's best for you. Usually your partner won't give you this time and instead will be insecure and thereby ruin the whole notion of the break. Probably, if this person is so insecure that they can't recognize what's going on in your life, then you won't work out anyway and you should break up with him or her, instead of taking a break which will ruin things anyway. really never understood me, let's just break up.

A really dumb idea that is supposed to save the relationship but only causes more problems and tends to result in the end.
Instead of actually working on stuff, we took a break. So when we got back together nothing got fixed so we broke up. She ended up meeting someone else while we were apart.

When two people who are in a relationship decide they need space from each other. They are not broken up, but they're not necessarily together still. Usually one person will expect the other to not flirt or do anything with other people while on the break. They also have intensions of staying together. Also known as being in a relationship, but it being complicated.
Girl 1:"Yeah, we're on a break."
Girl 2:"Oh are you two gonna get back together?"
Girl 1:"We're still in the relationship, it's just complicated.."
