Do "breaks" exist? (5)

Okay, I have a question...

Now, I myself have never been on one... but do you guys believe that couples can take "breaks"?

I think if a couple needs a 'break' they need to seriously re-evaluate whether they really belong together or not. The whole 'break' concept just sounds like a 'nice' way of saying "I'm tired of being with you and want to find somebody else but don't want to shatter your fragile self-esteem in the process."

You see, that's what I'M thinking... because I've only know ONE couple that has gotten back together after a "break", and the break lasted all of 3 weeks before they worked out their problems in a mature manner.

if your significant other says "break" it basically means he/she wants to find a new fuck but doesn't want to hurt you by openly saying "i want to break up with you"

My only ex-girlfriend told me that we should take a break, and two days later she was back together with her previous boyfriend. I think >>2 hit the nail on the head.
