I told my bf that we need to go on a break but instead he took it that we have broken up.

It means, to me, time apart to re-evaluate your future together. You need that space to think about the possiblities and also whether you miss the other person or not.
I had one for about four months with my gf, we decided that we wanted to keep trying and so did, and were together for another ten years.
