cool off is like breaking up in a week, like not being able to see each other for a week, no communication, something like that. cooling off might end up in 2 ways: 1) getting back together with or without talking and 2) breaking up altogether. i personally think cooling off is like a way of cooling things up between a bf and a gf. like if they had a fight, an argument, instead of breaking up, they would look for some time to think about the relationship and decide if they would go on ahead or break up. :)

If you partner ask for a one-year for a cool-off in your relationship, what does that mean? Is he/she trying to prepare you for a break-up? Can that still be considered as cool-off in your relationship? Will it end in reconciliation or break-up?

i think it's like fixing the problem on its own... or they're just putting off the flames before they decide to talk about it and before they decide how to fix it. you really can't do anything nice and make good results out of it if both parties have a big grudge about the situation. it's their way of saying "let's pause and take a little break, we have to think about this on our own"... something like that :)

As for me.....Cooling-off does "not" always lead to breaking up. It may seem like its the end of a relationship, because the cooling-off phase is usually accompanied by "we need space to think", a cooling-off period is basically an evaluation, and there is a 50/50 chance of break up or reconciliation. IN fact, it leads to an overall improvement to the relationship.

YUP..you are right..... all problems has its own reasons, and many things to be learned,, but the most important thing is that, after the problem, you should not do it again....

for me cool off is equivalent to break up. it is somehow giving each other a space where you can do what you want without asking permission or letting your partner know what you want. it is like cutting the strings which keeps you attached.

If that would be the situation then for sure it is like breaking up the relationships......

it depends on how long you have been with the person. if you are like me and have been with the person for years then i feel there is no need for a cooling off period, they should think about that type of stuff before they string you along and have you thinking this relationship is going somewhere when it is not.but if you just met someone and need to determine if this is someone that you want to continue seeing this person or someone else i understand. better to slow down before feelings get involve that way you can play around and do what you have to do before getting serious.

In my part there is nothing to do with my discussion and the best of it is just I heard it in the conversation from one of the topic that they have in "SIS" and I am happily married for about 10 years for now......

Ha ha another weird names on relationship. I never experienced one before but I think this means that you are still on but taking things slower, or that you are off but taking things slower? I really don't know and I find this one nonsense, why do people have to endure this phase? a phase where you are unsure of everything? why not just break up? if your partner does not want you anymore then go, and vice versa. I thin people use this to prevent their partner from being hurt, making things slower

Cool-off?.... It's giving time and space to your partner and for you to realize what's the problem between you and your partner...

In my own opinion about cool off is also breaking up.., It is hard to say to a person that, 'oh, ahmmm..you know what I think I don't love you anymore or I'm confused with my feelings because I have somebody else..so on and on.' Cool off is a way of saying that ' I don't feel the same way that I felt for you before' without saying this statement directly to a person.
