My girlfriend and I have been dating for almost two years now. As things have been going downhill these last two months and as much as I try to get this relationship working, nothing I do seems to change things for positive between us. So I asked her to take a break, on which she agreed as this would give me time to work on my personal issues and hers as well.
To put you guys in the context, we had a huge fight over useless stuff 3 weeks ago and I went too far. I grabbed her arm. (It left a tiny bruise on it) and I felt horrible and ashamed of myself. Alcohol was a factor in my behavior and since then, I stopped drinking and went to counselling. I still feel horrible and I honestly DON'T want this to happen again. She has a hard time getting over the thought of me doing it. It left her frightened and scared. This is the first time it happend and I truly, sincerely told her I was sorry, and want to regain her trust that anything like this won't EVER happen again.
She has been distant these last few weeks since it happened and I don't blame her either. It came to a point that I couldn't deal with her being emotionally distant and suggested we take time apart so I could work on myself, which she painfuly agreed and she said that she would do the same.
We haven't set a time frame on the break. Any thoughts or advice on this would be greatly appreciated!!
