I'm very much a proponent of using the language you best feel fits your situation. If 'break up' is what's comfortable to use, by all means use it. If it's not, don't.

The trouble I find with using the term 'break up' is that it feels like a very black and white phrase. It implies that you were in a romantic relationship with someone and now you're not. I find myself hesitant to use that phrase when I have a shift in relationship which falls into a gray area.
