If you really care about someone, just not in a romantic way anymore but you are trying really hard not to hurt them, is it okay to lie about why you need to break up with them?
For Example: "I really just need time to figure myself out.." rather than "I just don't love you the same way anymore.."
would you rather have the truth? think about it..

Truth is always best... it might be hurtful...but if you lie, it'll bite you back. Suppose you do say "I just need time" ... what'll you think happens in the future when he finds you dating another guy? At least with the truth... the only thing that can offend him... is... well... the truth,lol. But with a lie, and if he finds out one way or another... you are then "a liar," you are then someone who "doesn't care about feelings," and will have hurt his feelings by both making him feel untrusted and not worth your sincerity to be straight forward with him. Now I'm not putting those in "quotes" because that's what I'm saying, but because that's what he may say... and you don't want that floating in the air either if he tells people. Telling the truth won't be easy, and it may lead to an argument, or it may not and things might work between you... but at least he can't accuse you of lying or not being straight forward with him. I think you can find a way to be truthful, but use tact. You just "don't feel like you ("I") did when you met. You've always seen him as a strong friend...but it just seems to have stopped there." Or something like that.0
