I've gone out with someone a few times, and I liked hanging out with him, he's a good guy, but I honestly don't feel anything more for him than friends. I have to break things off... so should I tell him that, about not feeling more than being friends, or what? Because I feel like guys hate hearing that, and yet, that's just the truth of it. If there's a better way to say it or something, let me know please.

I literally just dealt with this same situation. Great guy, we have tons in common, he's funny and smart, but I just don't feel any romantic or sexual attraction towards him.
I told him that. I just said "Hey, so after giving it some thought, I've come to the conclusion that I'm just not feeling a romantic connection with you. I think you're a lot of fun, and I like hanging out with you, and I would like to be friends, but only if you're okay with that."
And he seemed to take it well, if maybe a little coldly, but that's fair enough, I guess. Maybe we'll hang out more, maybe we won't. But at least we both know that the dating thing is off the table.
Frankly, I think it's best to be honest. He deserves that, especially if he's a good guy.1
