Answer"Taking a break" could mean that this is a permanent breakup. Some people do not have the guts to come right out and speak the truth.

THE OPTIMISTIC POINT OF VIEW: If this was a serious relationship of a year or more, then you will have to trust their words to some degree. Give them their space and respect their wishes. Maybe they just have some personal growing to do before they can commit. Absolutely under no circumstances should you call them, contact them, cry to them, or beg them to get back together. This only makes things worse and prolongs your heartache. They will be so annoyed and only thinking negative thoughts rather than missing you. They have to realize it for themselves with no persuasion on your behalf.

Otherwise, if you do get back together with your ex, they will have the ultimate power over you. You will be relieved that you are back together. However, after some time, you will feel like they are only with you because you forced them, and they will end up resenting you for that. This will cause major problems and fights. Believe me; you do not want to feel this way. Ultimately, you will want to be with someone who truly wants to be with you, and you should not compromise that feeling for no one. The best thing to do is to be strong. Improve yourself physically, intellectually, and mentally. Even if you don't end up getting back with your ex, you will be a better person. This relationship could be a stepping-stone and a learning experience to prepare yourself for the one you are truly supposed to be with, even if that person is your ex.

Sometimes people need to experience life on their own and realize that the grass is not always greener on the other side. I do believe that people get back together. However, you need to give it a sufficient amount of time. And this does not mean two weeks because within that time you are only thinking about the breakup. Sometimes it could take months. If a lot of fighting occurred, you will want to begin again on a clean slate and get rid of all the built up anger inside.

If and when they come back around, do not make it easy for them to walk back into your life. If you do not feel strong enough to do this, then you will need to keep your distance until you truly feel you are able to resist them. You need them to chase you. If they love you, they won�t give up. Re-enter with a clear mind so that you can make rational decisions. Without this levelheaded state of mind, you will find yourself back in a downward spiral all over again. Just take your time and be careful. It will be hard, but this may be the only way to save your relationship. Nonetheless, if nothing progresses after six months, let it go.

The point of my response is to give the person the benefit of doubt, do not lose hope too quickly, and remember, �Everything happens for a reason.�

Answer"Taking a break" means he wants to break up with you. It doesn't feel good to hear that, but it is the truth.

It's best for YOU to assume that the break up is permanent and that you won't ever date him again. It's hard to get on with you life if you keep hoping he'll change his mind, because often that doesn't happen. Even if he did, the problems that caused you two to break up will resurface again.
