I don't think it's your choice to make. I was told many times that I was only a friend but I never took it as an end. I just remained friends. It was awkward after the initial confession but I really liked the girls I liked and I just chose to keep them in my life. It was my choice to decide that. But I suppose if it doesn't look good, well then maybe it's best if you leave him. Never been in that situation much though.

It's up to him. Tell him you're giving him the choice. Some guys can stick it out. Some can't.
