I wonder what sort of a break he has in mind --- just not being together for a while ( for a specified length of time, or an open-ended gap ? ), or being with other people ? Real love is hardly something on can just set aside for a time, like taking the batteries out of a torch. BUT if he is in a personal crisis of some sort not particularly involving you, he may both want to try to protect your from it and from his distress about it, and just to work on it without needing to think about you ?
Some people are indeed high maintenance, in the sense of expecting a high degree of attention, and it may indeed be hard for someone wrestling with some other crisis, to supply you with what you need.
