Taking a break in a relationship and dating other people
A few weeks or a couple of months with your thoughts should be enough for you to figure out where your head is at.If you decide before the agreed time is up that you really want to be with them, don’t go running back immediately, as that wouldn’t be fair on them.Your relationship will either come back fighting, or come to and end, allowing both of you to move on to pastures new.

If you’re going to take a break from your relationship, it should be made clear whether or not seeing other people during the time you’re apart is on the table.
It’s easier said than done, but be honest with yourself about your feelings, however uncomfortable they might make you feel.
Then, when the time comes for you both to reassess things, be honest with your partner.
For some people, and under some circumstances, having no contact can mean they have a chance to really see things clearly and gain some perspective.
Contact can cloud your judgment, and distance can be pretty revelatory.
