after three years, bf suddenly said he wanted to break up.
two weeks after that statement, he said to go on a break.
since he has been telling me he can't wait to get back with me and loves me.
he wants this break to work on his maturity and improve himself.
its been 2 months now, and we are due to get back together in roughly three weeks.
why would he want a break from me?? and for this long? especially if he says he misses me and can't wait to get back together

Long story short he doesn’t love you anymore but wants to keep you around until he finds a better option . Show him that you’re not a 2nd option or someone on the side - stop talking to him completely not even when he constantly
Calls or texts you , he’ll regret it immediately

What is it you want?
What are your thoughts?
How old are you both?

Imo people dont make these announcements without thinking about it and it may have just run its course.
There is a small chance he really does have some issues, but more likely its a halfway house to ending it because he has got bored and its run its course.

He can say the sweet nothings because its part of the denial and guilt cycle and he either wants an easy time or he darent say its over because he doesnt want confrontation or face awkwardness of a break up. I'd have taken 6 months and been looking elsewhere. Dont put your life on hold now.

Why couldn't he have worked on improving himself while in a relationship with you?

I think it's more likely that he wanted the break to experience playing the field a bit without the guilt of cheating on you.

Breaks are for people who wish to sleep around and justify it in a morally corrupt way. The only response should have been to refuse and issue an ultimatum accepting the break up if it came.

He has deceived you regarding it’s true purpose in all likelihood, dishonouring himself also. He is also either attempting to manipulate you or too much of a coward to break up.

He is an inferior male, write him off and move on.

He wants to have sex with other girls, he can't just decide to break up and get back when it suits him. Drop him and find someone more loyal
