Alot of people seem to confuse the 'needing space' part with being an easy excuse to split up. There are many different reasons that people may feel as though they need a break or space away to sort their heads out. It all depends on the situation. My partner and i went on a break a couple of weeks ago (his decision) which i was totally mortified about. I couldnt get my head around why he wanted to be apart, but i began to pull myself together and look at the logical side of things. He has alot on his plate at the minute, not just regarding me; which i must respect as i love him a very lot. I understand that he needs space to pull himself back together and get back on track, and the last thing he may need is a girlfriend.. at the minute. We went out the other day and spoke about us reuniting and stuff. We are still very much in love but have decided to take things slowly and see how it goes. So honestly, dont stress out if your partner asks for a break. If they have a genuine reason and still love u, the likelyhood is that you may get back together someday. xx
