Breaks aren't always half assed boss. Sometimes you need a bit of time to figure out what you want.
I think that most breaks end up with the pair splitting eventually, but not always. Hope it hasn't got you down too bad, went through the same thing.

Good luck.

i think it's fair to say either you're in the relationship or you aren't, in a good relationship you would help each other through stressful times so seems like it's better to end it.

There's no such thing as a break, you're either together or you aren't.

Its better you break up. She wants to have fun at uni (talk to guys) in that break and your gonna get hurt so its best you break up and if you can just be her friend if you are meant to be together then it will happen.

Never make empty threats, you have to follow through.

Dump her.

Breaks aren't ever used as a 'break' for clarity or whatever. If you reach the stage where you need a break, you've reached the end.

Break up for good.

More often than not "breaks" are just ways of saying 'I want to find/have sex with someone else, but I want to keep you as an insurance policy'.

Once the mention of considering a break comes up, it's done. You either give her the break and she'll go off to some other guy, or you don't and she'll do it behind your back.

Most of these posts are utter shite.

Relationships between adults sometimes require time for either/both people to understand if they want to be together. Breaks don't often work in favour of the relationship. But at a minimum, can sometimes provide an individual time to realise they shouldn't be in the relationship; prepare themselves and their partner, rather than it coming to an abrupt end.

Enjoy the time you have together, and if it's not making you happy anymore, end the relationship.

You can give each other space while still considering the two of you in a relationship. There is literally no other reason for a 'break' other than avoiding the cheater label.
