Is taking a break a good idea?

Taking a break... good or bad idea... does it create permanent damage and distance or can it mend fences. This isn't about me at all... I just thought it would of interest to the rest of your minions.
PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR partners who fit together with them like complementary lego pieces. When they ask for a break, what they're saying is "this is a partial fit and I'm not sure if there's a better lego piece out there for me." They're not ready to give you up completely, nor are they ready to give up on the nagging feeling that something's not clicking. So rather then ask for a break up, they ask for a break.

How it ends depends on lots of factors: why the legos aren't connecting right, whether those issues can be addressed during the break, whether people will actually address them, and what types of other legos the couple finds in their time off.

The thing to remember is that if you get replaced, don't take it personally. It doesn't mean your piece is broken or malformed. It just means you don't fit with this particular person. You don't want to be connected to the wrong piece anyway, because then you have something awkward and ugly instead of something aesthetically pleasing. Your match is out there. When you find each other, you'll both know it.
