I experienced this personally. She said she needed to take a break so we could have "space." I agreed, two months later I found out she was seeing a bunch of guys and broke up with me for one of them. Never again.
"We need a break" is code for "I want to sleep with other people, and not have you upset about it in case it doesn't work out."3THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

My boyfriend asked for a break last week. We were both unhappy in the relationship but we both want to make it work so we’re taking time apart to reflect on what we’re doing wrong and how we can improve it and come back better (his words and his idea), however he did say that he was unsure of wether he feels ready to be in a relationship. Skip to a week later, we’re inbetween a break and breaking up and he says he’s not sure if he wants a relationship, but if he does then he wants to be with me and I don’t understand what’s going on. But I think he has good intentions0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
