What does it mean to be together but not dating
If things were so great and the two of you were on the same wavelength, you wouldn’t need a break. Have you become better since being in the relationship? A break isn’t party time now that you don’t have someone by your side. The moment you decide to take a break, discuss a solid deadline. After that, set whatever deadline is best for the two of you. Most of us have no clue what a break means in terms of communication. State whether any communication is allowed, what type and how often.
It makes the remaining friendship awkward at best, and humiliating at worst. People suffer through this in the hope that the object of their affection will eventually buckle and reveal his or her true feelings. They keep making up excuses to hang out, hedging all their bets and waiting for God to give them a sign.
Have you ever noticed that a lot of people find love when they're not looking very hard for it?
It's usually because they're in the middle of a meaningful journey.
In most cases, it shouldn’t be that hard to agree on a break if it’s really needed.
This should be obvious, but saying you want to take a break and expecting the other person to be okay with it isn’t right. If you can’t, you either need to sit down and talk things out now or end it.
