Taking a Break, is healthy for sure, @NichG4, and if there is problems in Paradise, this will give you and the SO a chance for a new romance with your relationship, should you decide as you take this ride, that you Both... Are Missing the Kissing and the history you both shared.
Keep in touch, however. However long you decide to make the 'Break,' I find it also 'Healthy' and advisable to not put one another totally on a back burner but keeping in contact a bit during the week, at least keeps the Open lines open for convo and on top of This... Nursing and nurturing something more special.
Good luck. xx1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

My girlfriend and I went on a semi-break that lasted 6 months. I say semi because we still texted everyday and had catch up dates about every other month. We had been together for 3 years at that point and there was a lot of problems throughout that we both needed to sort through. Ironically enough, I asked about it on this site too. After it was over we decided to "start back over" but with better communication this time. So coming from someone who went through it, only do it if you want to be with this girl for the long haul. At your age, I'd be hard pressed to say it would be worth it. Once you get to college that's a whole other animal, especially if you go to different schools (which we did). It worked for me and my girl so people saying it never works out are just being pessimistic. But again, unless you lucked out and found "the one" at 17 then I'd say just try to move on.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
