Nameless revealed that they took a step back from their relationship at some point. He explained that there came a point when they questioned whether they were contributing to their problems.

This decision led Nameless to move out temporarily. He however, clarified that the move was consensual and aimed at allowing them to focus on their individual growth and address their issues.

"At some point, we had to take a step back and ask ourselves if there was something we were doing wrong...I moved out at some point, it wasn't as dramatic but it came at a time we could focus on things..

"It forced us to focus on our issues. It helped us focus on ourselves. We didn't define it as a separation, it was just a time-out," he said.
