Usually it means your partner wants to either not see you as often or completely break-up for awhile. They may feel hemmed in or not ready to make commitments. It's important that you communicate well with your mate and ask them to simply "spit it out in plain English!" Good luck Marcy

If it is hurting your relationship, tell him so. If he still insists upon doing it, tell him you want to take a break from the relationship for a while.

If he doesn't, then you should find someone who *does* care about you enough to take your feelings into consideration.

It means he doesn't want to see you for a while It means he doesn't want to see you for a while It means he doesn't want to see you for a while :( sorry This could mean so many different things! In my experience, when a guy says that you need to take a break, it usually means he wants to break up. If you have a very hectic life (example: you both have busy work/school schedules, extracurricular activities), then he may just need a break to focus on his life in general. I would talk to him and see what the deal is!
