I have been dating my boyfriend for 2 years now and lately we have been fighting a lot. He tells me he loves me but he needs a "break". A 2 month break to be precise. I don't like the idea.. I'd prefer it to be 2 weeks. I told him that we should just break up if it's going to be that long. We both love each other and he says he still wants to be with me but he needs some time to find himself. We have gone through a lot with each other and I can't imagine him being with someone else. I'm afraid he'll find someone new during the break. What should I do? I can't force him to stay if he doesn't want to.

It is hard when someone wants to leave but if that's what he wants then be brave and let him go. But please don't wait around for him. It is very unfair that he is asking you to wait around. If it is to end then that's it. It ends. No waiting. No promises of getting back together. It ends there and then. You need to be free to able to allow someone else into your life if that was to happen. Tell him this. You've got to be good to yourself and look out for you. Good luck!!1

It's heartbreaking when you realise it's the beginning of the end and you don't know how to stop it.
If that's what he wants then that's what he wants but I agree with you. Two months... Why two months apart? If you truly love each other then two months apart will be heartwrenching for you both. I'd ask him to be honest with you. Tell you how he really feels because I don't think he is being honest. It sounds like he is having doubts about the relationship, not about his own self realisation.
Don't agree to something you aren't happy with, if you think two months is too long then say no. After two years of dating I wouldn't be happy if my partner needed two months away from me...
Sorry I don't have any real advice for you.1
