In a relationship it’s easy to let other areas of your life slip away and a break is a good time to re-build those areas.
A guy will usually spend this time trying to get back on his A-game.
I wasn’t trying to be cold, I just wanted to focus on me.
Even if he is going through a hard time, just leave it alone and let him handle it on his own.
This will only make him feel pressured and he’ll pull away even more.
I did the break thing with a girlfriend and she accused me of being cold because I didn’t want to get into deep emotional discussions about the relationship.
She’ll obsess over what she might have done to push him away and will try to devise some plan to get him back. In my opinion, breaks are usually a big sign of trouble.
However, it is possible for things to go back to normal as long as both people use the break time properly.
