Basics of Taking a Break
When someone says they want to take a break, in essence that is a really wimpy way of breaking up. Here's the issue. If you are in a relationship, then you talk with each other, spend time with each other and nuture the relationship. If you are NOT in a relationship, then the relationship has time to stagnate, you have time to drift apart, you can get close to another person. If you are 'taking a break' this is the state you're in. If you want to work on the relationship and problems, then work on it. This is the whole point of a relationship, to work through issues. If you do NOT want to work on the relationship, then break up. It is not fair to keep your partner around as a safety net in case you want to go back some time in the future.
