Break vs. Breakup

Group Therapy: Break or Breakup?

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

My boyfriend and I have been going out for about two years now. We have had a rough patch recently in which I had some trust issues with him. I confronted him about this and the conversation ended up being that things have been going downhill recently and he has doubts about us. And with everything going on in his life, he feels like he needs to sort things out. He says he has been feeling stressed from work and he just doesn't have any interest in doing anything anymore.

I asked him if there was someone else and he said no. He told me he loves me, but when I ask him how long this will be he said he doesn't know. Basically he didn't have any answers for me besides the fact that a) we are still in a relationship b) we are not seeing other people. I asked him if he thinks we will work everything out and he says he hopes so.

I don't know what to make of it. He did text me last night to say good night and today is the second day. I have an urge to call him and ask him to clarify things further — like what his doubts are about us and that I need to know a straight yes or no answer. But on the other hand, I want to give him some space.

What should I do?
