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.
Yeah...you really never understood me, let's just break up.

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"
