A break up, but not truly a break up, i.e. both parties still feel an obligation towards one another, engage in frequent phone calls and "meetings", and feel guilty about beginning to date other people. It is a psychological way of coping with the difficulties of a relationship by both parties distancing themselves from the relationship itself and allowing one another breathing room.
Person 1: Hey, I just saw Leland and Lisa together last night. Didn't they break up because of school commitments?

Person 2: No, that was just a fake up.
