Hello Abdullahi,

Relationships at workplace can be tricky and can affect each other productivity levels. It is therefore important when you decide to have a relationship at workplace, you first understand what your Human Resources policy say about relationships at workplace. Also is the person you are having a relationship with senior, junior or are you at the same level. Second, does your relationship affect your work and that of your partner? Third, should you have conflicts in your relationship, how do you handle and ensure it does affect work?

Perhaps, there are genuine reasons as to why this lady want to have sometime off the relationship; talk to her get to know her reasons. Most importantly though, it is to respect her decision to have time.
