basically I've been with someone for 3 years, he is the most perfect boyfriend to me and an amazing stepdad to my 5 year old i could ever ask for but over the last 18months i have been fighting with myself over wether im happy or not in the relationship, we have spoken many times together about this aswell. weve had probably about 6 breaks that have lasted about a week and he really is like my best friend but im just not physically attracted to him does that make me shallow? it hurts me so much to see him cry but does that mean i should stay and be unhappy just to make him happy. i really dont know what to do :(.

No, sweetie, you have done the right thing. By staying where you are 'Unhappy' is only going to make you Both Miserable and That is Certainly not a healthy environment for anyone, especially your 5 year old.
Although it breaks your heart to 'see him cry,' don't let it tug on your heart strings. Give yourselves this Break Up barrier now and perhaps in time, when things have calmed down, you can come to some comfy compromise of just Being----Friends with No benefits.
You can't make everyone happy. And to be in a one sided relationship, even if it was the Prince of England, doesn't work if you are Not Into it... Perhaps your heart is telling you it's time For----Changing of the guards in time.
Good luck. xx
