If you feel you need a break:
1. You must make sure that you truly feel like there is a possibility that you want to be with the person. If you feel like your problems cannot be worked out it's pretty obvious that a break isn't going to help. You should probably just eject yourself from the relationship, 100 percent.
2. You need to let the other party know the ground rules of your break. Are you still communicating? Are you seeing other people? What do you plan to accomplish? What aspects of your relationship need to be sorted out, and most important, how long is the "break" for?
3. While you are on your break, truly determine if how things are is really what you want.
If you don't want to take the break:
1. You have the option of letting them know that a break is not what you want. But you have to know that you run the risk of losing them permanently, not just for a period of time.
2. Do not start obsessing over them. I know it's hard, but focus on you and examine your role in the relationship.
3. Do not call, text, email, Facebook or Tweet them. Give them some time to realize what they're missing. Give them some time to miss you.
