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"
