A gradual dissolution of a relationship, that is usually sexual in nature, instead off quickly and completely breaking it off.
Shit was getting crazy serious, but I wanted to hit it a few more times, so I told her we are just cooling off.

Kind of like a break up, but both of them (the couple in a relationship) are going to get back together.

In other a words, a temporary break up that only lasts for a period of time.
Joseph broke up with me while I'm under medication for my Syndrome, but he says we're gonna go back together after I'm done. Which makes this whole thing only a cool off.

Becky Ball: No you haven't done that right
Me: Yeah I have
Ball undoes all my work
Ball: Oh yeah that's fine
Mark walks off to take 10 seconds
Ball: Did you just go 'cool off'????

There are multiple people who look really cool, therefore, cool is not a good enough word to describe them.

However, you try to compare the cool people.
Ben Barnes and Henry Cavill have a cool-off, who would win?

You can't do that, they both are too cool.

Cool off period, cool off duration, or simply known as ‘cool off’ is a set or indefinite period of time, you impose on a friend, significant other, colleague or family member. Cool off is generally applied when another has wronged, disappointed, upset, annoyed or irritated the imposer. During the cool off period, the imposer will remain silent fur the duration, giving themselves time to compose themselves and time for the imposed to think what they have done. If the imposed tries to contact during the cool off, they shall be ignored or furthermore may result the cool off in being extended. Cool off is an effective strategy and more than often results in making up after the period is lifted.
