HomeRomantic Relationship QuestionsMy girlfriend wants to take a break. What should I do?
Rila Thomas Staff asked 5 months ago
My girlfriend and I have been dating for six months. We're both in college and things have been getting pretty serious. Recently, she told me that she wanted to take a break. She said she needed some time to figure out what she wants. I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to lose her, but I also don't want to be pressuring her into something she's not ready for.

If your girlfriend wants to take a break, it's important that you respect her decision. This doesn't necessarily mean that the relationship is over, but it does mean that she needs some time to herself. Try not to take it personally and give her the space she needs. In the meantime, stay busy with your own life and hobbies. Keep yourself occupied so you're not just sitting around waiting for her to come back. If she does come back, great! If not, at least you'll know that you did everything you could to make things work. Either way, remember that you deserve someone who wants to be with you just as much as you want to be with them.
