Most Helpful Guy
It's hard to let go of someone you love. He's in love with you and anything but getting back together with him is going to destroy him. It's not fair to him that you lie. Don't tell him you just want to be friends because he doesn't want to be friends. He'll always have the hope that maybe you'll love him again. Keep in mind that he loves you! You are his world right now and your about to take that away. You may not be hurting but he is. Tell him that you are sorry and that things didn't work out, you understand that he's in love with you but your just not in love with him anymore. Have a big conversation, let him ask all his questions and gain closure. Your breaking his heart at least give him one night of your life to explain why you don't love him anymore.
