Seriously, what the hell does that even mean? For some, a break means ripping off the band aid slowly on a failing relationship. The problem is you have to set some ground rules first. Does he really make you happy? Have you become better since being in the relationship? What do you like and dislike? Sit down and seriously think about what you want from this relationshipwhat you can change to get it and if the relationship is even worth saving.
Set a deadline. The moment you decide to take a break, discuss a solid deadline. Take at least a few weeks. After that, set whatever deadline is best for the two of you. Choose how and when to communicate. Most of us have no clue what a break means in terms of communication. Is it taboo to still text your boyfriend? How many calls are too many?
I know you might not be in the mood to talk at that very moment, but set some communication guidelines. State whether any communication is allowed, what type and how often. Avoid dating at all costs. Do you realize how many breaks turn into breakups because of this? Take care of your own urges. Look at 4 again. Remember, no dating and no sex with others. Both parties need to agree. Both of you need to agree to the break. Spend some time apart. You do know what a break means right?
At least the basic concept. A break means you spend time apart. Consider your future. Think about your own future. Remember, you need to be happy too. Take time to calm down. Take the break as a chance to calm down. Let go of your anger and think about things more clearly.
Is is possible you jumped to conclusions? Did you read too much into his words? Could a little work on both sides fix things? I think this is the biggest rule during a break. Are you happier or not? Leave others out of it. The two of you might not be talking, but anything you tell your friends and family could still reach their ears. I know you want to bitch about what an ass he is right now. Go back to 9 and just breathe. Just remember to do what feels right to you in the end. Get your own life together.
It might seem that way, but sometimes it actually about one or both of you needing to get your own life together. Make a final decision.
The entire purpose of a break is to figure out what to do next. Do you want to stay or go? In the end, it all boils down to one decision. Figure out what you want and talk to your boyfriend about it when the deadline comes. Think of it as a possible new beginning to your relationship.
