A break in a relationship is when you agree to have time to yourself in the relationship when things either get confusing with each other or you need time to figure out yourself. Some people ask for a break instead of breaking up as they still love the other person and want to make sure they love them back. A break shouldn’t last over a month or two and when ready they two people should talk about getting back together. A break IS NOT the same as a breakup
“ I think we need a break, not to break up because I love you but I need time to sort myself out so I can love myself aswell as you”

( two months later )

“ hey can our break be over? I really love you and I know it was the wrong thing to do”

When someone in the relationship wants to break up but they’re being a scary bitch about it and dont wanna say it straight up so they use “lets take a break” so they can talk to other people while the other person is waiting for them to “figure it out
