This subject of "a break" has come up with several friends lately. No, this has nothing to do my relationship - it's perfectly fine. But they are questioning pulling the plug, moving on or fighting through their difficult times.
However, apparently I'm the only one who doesn't understand "a break."
To me, "a break" is for people who can't pull the trigger to end a relationship. One really wants to end it, but you don't want to end it because you will hurt the other person's feelings. Or, you simply see a hot piece of ass they want to try on for awhile, but still keep the you hanging around when they are finished with the newbie.
What does "a break" really solve?
It's a free pass to slam everyone from your coworker to the bartender, have girls/guys night every night and increase your chances of catching something ugly.
However, I'm told that it's "to figure things out and really determine if you want to be with that person. It's a chance to step away and decide what you want to do."
No, sorry, Fantasy Land doesn't exist.
