The latest woman to get in on the 'we're on a break' act? Gaga posted an Instagram of the pair recently, with a caption that read: 'Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates.Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break.In the end, taking a break just makes everything horrible. Not only does it make you feel crazy and confused, but it also opens the door for a whole new set of issues you may have to deal with, like if he hooks up with someone else or you do or you find out he was lying to you or whatever - that will make you fight more. Before you know it, you're miserable and on another break.
I can almost guarantee that this is one huge step in the direction of a toxic, on-again/off-again relationship.I can't help feeling that once you open the exit door on a relationship, sooner or later someone is going to use it.But then, perhaps staying together in the face of everything is a bit like that ultimate piece of bad relationship advice: 'never let the sun go down on the argument.' Maybe committing blindly - whether to finishing a discussion or working on the relationship - can end up doing more harm than good.He got on with his life and waited for me to burn myself out, before sending me a terse three line email asking if I wanted to end it formally. You leave the door open to get back together and it's not surprising that after a few days - the worst part of a break-up - you want that person back.The reality is, if you were to stay separated and push through the misery of the first couple of months, you'd likely realise that you’re better off, aren't dependent and that there are great things about being single.We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. We're just like everybody else and we really love each other.' Which, for a celebrity, is incredibly honest.And although I get where Gaga is coming from, but I still remain unconvinced about a break doing your relationship any good., or maybe someone in The OC, but it was all the rage. 'Either you're going out, or you're not' was my mother's perennial response.You'd go on a break with your boyfriend/girlfriend over the summer holidays so you could both snog/shag your way around Cornwall/Tenerife, and then get back together in September. Only, she was an adult therefore, so obviously understood nothing about life or relationships.Things can very easily fall apart and you won't end up back together - making you even more disappointed. Once you're on a break, you're more likely to think, "hey, I'm technically not with this person anymore... Obviously you guys weren't in a good place before the break, otherwise you wouldn't be on it. Either way, breaks don't really give you an accurate view of single life.Source: Shutter Stock The solution to all of the uncertainty that comes with breaks might seem to be a set of strict rules for both of you to follow. Obviously, one or both of you are feeling confused about your feelings - and breaks aren't any less complicated.
