Do you think when two people are growing apart it will make them realise what they need to get back closer? If you get what i mean, do you get what i mean?

I think taking a break from a relationship could go either way. People are able to grow apart from each other even when they are with each other every day. Other times the saying "Absent makes the heart grow fonder" can apply.
If you feel like you are being suffocated in the relationship then maybe just limiting how many times in a week you spend together would be more effective then just 'taking a break'. However if you strongly feel 'taking a break' will strengthen your relationship for the future then you really need to discuss what exactly does 'taking a break' mean to each of you.
Using this method is a gamble, if 'taking a break' means you both are allowed to see other people then both of you are risking that you may find someone else out there that just totally sweeps you off your feet. If you 'take a break' and then later on get back together and either one of you find out that the other person did meet someone and dated them no matter how short the time period and maybe even had sex with them how is that going to make you feel? Is it a risk you are willing to take? Are you ready for a conversation of "Well that person didn't count as cheating because we were on a "break" at the time".
Just because one method worked well for one couple does not mean it is the right method for all couples. The key to a strong relationship is clear communications, and trust. Honesty is most important, being able to explain things and listen to the other person whether or not you like what they are saying. It is a natural defense people do when they hear something they do not like to defend themselves as to why it isn't true. But you need to be willing to listen and communicate honestly.0
