When I see him, I feel kind of fake in a way, like I have to force compliments, smiles, and laughs out of me to please him. He’s a good guy, but not necessarily when it comes to relationships. Sometimes he’ll be rude to me all week long, apologize over text by saying he’s “been a bad boyfriend”, but then turn around and act the same the next week.. he’s also misscalled me by his long term crush’s name last night. I feel like I’m going in circles and missing out on something brighter and bigger in my life. I do love him, but I think it’s more in a friendship sort of way.
How do I let him down? I want to talk to him about this during summer vacation so I don’t have to deal with the awkwardness of sitting next to him in class. I’ve never broken up with someone before except when my ex cheated on me.. so please, do you guys have any tips? I don’t want to be insensitive, he’s a good friend.
