I broke up with my boyfriend on Sunday. We only dated a week, but he says he's so into me and wants another shot. He's a little older than me, he doesn't have a job, and he drinks way too much. I don't want to turn him down AND make him feel like a bad person. So what should I do to turn him down nice enough to where we could still at least be friends?

First of all, you should have gotten to know him better before getting involved. Remember this lesson for the future.
Secondly, think of yourself first. You do not want this relationship to continue. Period. As long as you don't mistreat him or make condescending statements to him, he has to handle his own feelings.
So, just tell him that this relationship is not working out for you. Don't give any reasons. Don't make him feel that you are leaving him for someone else. DOnt give any excuses. Just be matter of fact. Don't offer to remain friends. Just break it off.0
