I recently fell out of love with my boyfriend of 8 months. He knows something is up because I've been acting really quiet and unhappy around him. He has a history with depression and I just don't know how to end things with him. Help?
It's really nothing that I can pinpoint, I literally woke up one day and just felt totally different.

Just tell him. The quicker the better in these circumstances, he will just grow more dependent on you as time goes by, making any pain you inflict on him worse. Don't do this with an audience and give him some time to react.
He will probably try to get you to change your mind, may beg etc. You just have to be clear about your decsion and stick to it. Try to leave him some dignity, tell him about some of his good qualities, but be firm that you have to move on.
These moments of rejection are very hard for a guy to share with anyone outside the relationship, but it has to be his choice about whether to do this, so don't go talking to his friends about what has been said between you.
He may or may not want to stay friends. You have to respect his choice and deal with it if he needs a complete break.
