I have no other real reason other than feeling like I'm being tied down. As bad as it sounds, I feel like I'm not relationship material yet. I feel the pressure and expectations. My boyfriend would always expect me to go see him or he see me every weekend to every other day. He doesn't understand that I'm exhausted from work and school. He would expect me to always look appealing even if I want to have a lazy day. He'd down me for wanting to hang out with friends. I honestly can't take it and I'd rather be single. People keep telling me to talk to him but I've tried and honestly I just want to be single. However, I hate that I have to feel like a jerk in the end because I know that it'll break his heart.

No. If you're not ready for a relationship then break it off. To continue when you don't want it is only going to create problems anyway. Just break it off as gently and nicely as you can, but also be very honest. Say "I'm not ready to be in a relationship right now. I'm sorry, I like you but I have to end the relationship"0

Nope! You only have one life and you never know when your time is up. You don't get to go back and do it over again. So you might as well make choices that are going to make you fulfilled and bring you harmonious joy!
Having a boyfriend (or girlfriend) can be hard when you are ambitious with goals and primarily focused on working towards a certain type of future because they require attention, focus, energy, and time. Plus his whole whining/nagging thing where he throws fits if you want to enjoy the company of your friends too is going to start making you resent him. That ish is annoying. He doesn't sound like a very realistic, good boyfriend anyway. He sounds like one of those guys who thinks real life relationships are suppose to play out the way they do in the movies.
You gotta do what's best for you which sounds like leaving this relationship. His heart will mend in time.1
