If Your Boyfriend Wants To Take A Break Can You Get Him Back?

One of my parents friends’ daughter was going through some relationship problems not too long ago. From what I understand her boyfriend told her that he wanted to take a break from the relationship which left her puzzled. She then proceed to inquire from friends, family, and even on line websites about advice fixing her relationship.

If you find yourself in a similar situation with your boyfriend here are a few tips that may assist you through this situation so both of you come out unscathed.

First of all you need to understand that when a guy says he wants to take a break it could very well signify something else. More often than not what he’s saying is that he’s quite sure he doesn’t want to be in a relationship with you anymore, but isn’t certain yet so “I’ll keep her around until I figure it out or find someone else”.

I know this may sound harsh but basically when someone says they wish to take a break it’s all about them. They want to selfishly “keep their options open”. And that’s egocentric irrespective of the way you try to justify it.

It’s nearly impossible to take a break and work on fixing the mistakes in your relationship at the same time. To really mend the issues there generally must be some discussion between the two of you. That is why a break is not about fixing a relationship, but more about easing out of it.

Quite often, but not always it implies they’re interested with someone new, but doesn’t want to totally end it with you till they’re sure this ‘new thing’ will work out.

Should you’re boyfriend says he wants to take a break do yourself a favor, don’t cling. Do not beg him to keep you informed about everything he’s doing or what his issues are, and then try to fix all of them. Whatever is going on he’s proven that he needs time to get things figured out. Give him space, but do not put your life on hold while he’s making up his mind about you. That’s a little unfair isn’t it?

It is essential you just maintain living your life. Go out with the girls, go to movies, shopping, or whatever you enjoy the most. Don’t sit around and how or when hes going to get it all figured out. Just live.

You can also use the break as an opportunity to determine what you want. Do you need this relationship? Are your needs being met? Is he the kind of guy who values this? Now is a great time to do some soul searching and turn the attention inward towards yourself. You may be surprised with how you start seeing things from a different perspective, and much more clearer than before.

If he was getting sick of the relationship there’s a good chance you may have been as well, however you either decided not to face it or just suppressed in some way. This is also a good time to envision what life would really be like with or without him.

So if the phrase “my boyfriend says hes wants to take a break” is still fresh in your mind just keep in mind that there are two of you involved. Take this time to fix your life, do not mope round. Time will only tell if he’s really the guy for you. Things have a way of working themselves out.

If you want more help about your ex boyfriend and want advice on how to get him back then you could use focused advice specific to your situation. Luckily this help and advice is out there Discover how to get him back and then keep him this time from the blog dedicated to women going through boyfriend problems.

Take X-Girlfriend Back On Your Line

When you broke up a girlfriend that it can be not easy to bring her back. I am sure, by now, you have tried every tips in the book, internet or friend’s advice. You’ve bought her flowers, you’ve bought her chocolates, you’ve even stood outside of her window and read her love letters – nothing has worked. You find yourself asking questions like: Am I good enough? Does she still care about me? What I am I doing wrong? You have to understand the problem is not you, the problem is that your approach is not the kind that works with her.


The first thing you need to do, if you have any shot of getting your ex girlfriend back, is to come up with a plan of action. If you are serious about getting her back, then you will need to literally write out the steps you are going to take to do this.


Start out by making weekly goals, such as…Step 1: By the end of this week I will have established physical contact…Step 2: By the end of this week I will have gone on three dates with her…and so forth. Your plan of action will be your battle plan as you get closer and closer to getting her back.


After you have created a plan of action, it is imperative that you make her realize how important she is to you. If you have recently broke up with her, then this step will be a little easier to take. However, if you were the one who got dumped, you are climbing a much steeper mountain. There are a few ways you can get her attention to let her know how you feel. One of which is to write a letter – sounds corny – but trust me, it can work wonders. The reason you write a letter, and not an email or long text message, is because a letter is one of the most tangible and sensitive things you can give a woman. In fact, it is what I like to call, and object of permanence (OOP). Other examples of OOPs are jewelry, stuffed animals, tickets to a concert, and photos – basically anything that she can physically hold that reminds her of you. The more OOPs you send her way, the more likely she will be back in your life.


While you are following your plan of action and dropping some OOPs her way, there are a few things you should do in the meantime. The first, and most important, is to listen. Listen to everything that comes out of her mouth. Even if she is yelling at you, listen. At this point in your relationship you have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, so open your ears and close your mouth. The second thing you should be doing is figuring out why it didn’t work the first time. If you can figure out why something broke, you can fix it and prevent it from breaking a second time. Another basic thing you can do is be pleasant to be around. If you are trying to get back with your ex, you want her to value this new time you are spending with each other.


Going through a break-up can be difficult for anybody. At the very least it makes sense to try to make it work out. People that don’t, often regret it for years (if not the rest of their lives). That is why George Bachmann has created a resource that looks at many ways of trying to bring that special someone back into your life.

US gov’t raises air bag warning by 3M vehicles; efforts clouded by wrong info, faulty website

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration



Potential danger to drivers and passengers.
BMW, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota, Honda Accord, Saabs, Subaru, 2003 to 2005 Pontiac Vibes.

Most of the 7.8 million vehicles are subject to existing recalls. But manufacturers have limited the recalls to high-humidity areas, excluding cars and trucks in states to the north. NHTSA says owners in Florida, Puerto Rico, Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Hawaii and “limited areas near the Gulf of Mexico in Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Louisiana” should pay special attention to the warning.

General Motors, which sold two models with the faulty air bags, planned to notify about 10,000 customers by overnight mail. The models covered are 2003 to 2005 Pontiac Vibes in high humidity areas and Saab 9-2X models. The cars were made by other manufacturers — the Vibes by Toyota, and the Saabs by Subaru.

Rats cause thousands of fires each year, will your home be next?

Rats can be prolific breeders. In a very short time, a few of these rodents can multiply into hundreds. Within a few months, they can increase their numbers by 20 times or more. And, as you might imagine, the more of these rodents that are in the structure, the more damage that will be caused. This is not opinion, this is fact, and this is why rat exterminators must be brought in as soon as possible.

As mentioned above, rats are known to cause an alarming number of fires each and every year across the country, and this includes structures in Orange County and Los Angeles. It has been estimated that these pests cause upwards of 50,000 fires each year. The dollar cost for these fires is staggering, but the loss of life caused by these fires is beyond reckoning. Professional rat exterminators can remove this threat as they remove the cause of the threat.

Many homeowners will call in rat exterminators simply because they are concerned that the pests are contaminating their food. It is common for rats and mice to leave their droppings and urine on food that they burrow into and consume. It is also a known fact that many rats carry other pests such as mites, lice and other vermin which can cause their own problems once they take hold within a home. Again, professional rat exterminators are the best option for ridding the home or business of these unhealthy pests.

Some homeowners and business owners may attempt to rid the property of these pests on their own. While this may work in a few cases, it normally results in failure as do-it-yourself techniques only work when there are one or two rodents to handle. A better option that can actually cost less than repeated DIY treatments is to hire professional rat exterminators who know how to get the job done the first time and get it done in a timely manner. It is also important to work with professional rat exterminators who follow the Center for Disease Control Guidelines for Rat Cleanup.

Professional rat exterminators can offer a variety of methods for ridding a property of these pests. In many cases, trapping the pests and removing them alive is the best option as this prevents pests from dying and decomposing between walls or in other hard to reach places. At other times, baiting may be the best solution. And finally, rat-proofing the structure is an excellent method for long-term control of these pests. It basically entails ensure that the new rodents cannot get into the structure once the current rodents are removed. All of these methods have been proven to be effective, professional rat exterminators can suggest which are best for your situation.

Learn how rat exterminators can rid homes and businesses of these dangerous pests and do so in a safe and effective manner.
