I say do it now. If you wait until after his birthday, then he'll realize it was over before he even got the news, that you were waiting to break it off.
If you do it now, he'll have his birthday to pick himself back up.
Plus you guys don't even live in the same state, so you won't have to deal with seeing him in the aftermath of it.
But who knows, he may be thinking the same thing. But yeah, the sooner the better3THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Keep it light and semi sweet Until the Birthday boy's Big Day, @Tjf14. You don't want to feel you are this party basher by smashing his heart when you know that Next weekend... Is his birthday.
I don't find you a party pooper because you are feeling this way in a LDR. It takes a special person to be in this kind of relationship and if only One is making the effort and taking the time and the patience, it can go and grow dead in the water like a dead duck.
After the Fact and his day has come and went, have a talk with him on Skype or even on the phone. Tell him you can't continue to be in this date mate phase of things because Texas isn't a stone's throw and you would just like to be Friends for now so you both can spread your wings and do other things.
As sad as he may feel that his party is Over, friendship is something that doesn't have to end at the End, my friend.
No need to give him all the lame duck excuse, be honest.
Good luck. xx0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
