1. Getting Space

One of the most common benefits of a relationship break is getting the space you need.2

Everyone needs space.

If you're not used to being in a relationship or if your partner is very attentive and you're not accustomed to that, you can get antsy.

You might just need some space to yourself.

Finding Yourself

Yes, it is. I know it's hard, but you need that time to figure out if you really want to be with one another.
Is it better not to talk to each other during a "break"?

With that kind of love in the relationship, I can't imagine that she won't still be with you, even if it does take a while. That does happens, and it hurts very, very badly, I know, but sometimes during moments of serious change, a person really does just need time to get in touch with herself again. Have faith, don't be afraid to let her know your feelings and fears, and try to be as supportive as you can be -- but not to the detriment of yourself. You deserve to be happy and loved.
Well just yesterday my girlfriend called me and told me that she was going to the National Guard. I didn't know what to think, but I told her that if it makes her happy then I'm 110% behind her... but then as we started talking more about it I asked if we would still be together even though I'm in Michigan for school and she'll be in the National Guard, and she told me she doesn't know. So she said that she need time to figure out her life and what she wants in her future, but yet she still wants me to be apart of it even if we dont get back together... I don't know how to feel right now because we've been so faithful and caring to each other. we never cheated, nor talked to any other girls. It scared me that she was telling me these things, because I never thought me and her would ever have this issue. But between her family problems and us arguing so much lately I can see why she needs time to herself... We still love each other very much, and we've known each other for a long time but have be in a relationship for almost a year n a half... I just hope her heart leads her back to me...
