He's very sensitive though so I tried to be as gentle about this as possible. Turns out I was too gentle and he didn't quite get that I wanted to break up.
I felt sorry because he's had a rough week and was going to the hospital to treat a bad allergy crisis after we spoke so I didn't have the heart to explain that I was trying to dump him. He asked me to watch a movie with him today and I panicked and said yes. What do I do now?
