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”

GIRL: so you’re breaking up with me?

BOY: no we are on a break (so he thinks you’re his and won’t get with other people)

A gap in a relationship where it is sometimes ok to see other people, taken for many reasons
He didn't know how he felt so he suggested that he and his girlfriend took a break so he could think about how he felt towards her.
