63% of you said “yes”, and while I want to side with all you positive people, my personal experiences have proven otherwise. Maybe it was me, or maybe it was the other person, but every time I took this turn in a relationship, it eventually crumbled apart. The “break” created baggage, a baggage so large it inevitably lead to trust issues. As for passion…yes…I think a “break” can spark passion, ever heard of the “fighting and fucking” phenomenon? But it’s probably not the healthiest way to do it.
If you need a break, maybe what you really need is to move on.
