How should I break up with my boyfriend?

I feel like a huge scumbag because I've been with this guy for almost 8 months and I don't love him. I fell out of love at least 6 months ago. I stay with him because he loves me and so do his friends and family. I also am starting to develop feelings for another guy but I am smart enough not to cheat. I would feel like an asshole to break up with him. How can I break up in a polite way?
