Is asking for a break from the relationship ok?
I am 20 years old and have been dating the same man (age 26) for almost three years. Emotionally, he is a dream, we are best friends and we have the same hobbies. Physically, I find myself losing my attraction for him because he does not compliment me or make me feel sexy anymore. (I have brought it up to him, he says that sex fades in all relationships.) We have only had sex once in the last 3 weeks, although one week I was on the rag.

Yes, as a person in general, you have every right to ask for a break. But during that break, he may just find someone else, or he may realize he doesn't want you back. So it's a risk you have to be willing to take.
If someone considers a break, it's already broken. Make a clean cut and move on. It won't get any better.
