    I've been dating a nice guy for almost 3 years. We have a good time together, get along well, etc., but I'm not sure if I want to continue in the relationship. (You know, sometimes you like someone without wanting to date, right?).
    Anyway, what is the best way to end this? I'm afraid I'll stay in the relationship simply because I don't want to hurt him but that's not fair to me or him.
    Thanks for everyones help and direction.

    I feel that there is no right or wrong way of approaching this situation...

    either way it will be hard for the both of y'all

    I would set a day, for the both of us, to talk at a confortable place and start by telling him how I really feel and hear what he has to say. Maybe you guys can work something out together... just be there for him until he is okay to be on his own.

    Exactly what type of relationship do you have? A dating relationship only? Or something much more intimate? Are you wanting your freedom to date other guys? icon_wink.gif

    You sit him down and tell him how you feel.

    At first he might get upset and not want to spend any time with you. Things might stay this way or over time me might come back and be ok with being friends but there will be a time of hunt that will have to let it take its course.

    YEs, brake it off before you cheat on the guy and cause more pain on him. Do him a favor

    In my experience, if you're going to break up with someone it doesn't matter how you say it, the reaction is going to always be the same. Their reaction is 95% dependent on how they feel about you and the relationship and only 5% dependent on the nuance you use to dump them.

    If he's going to get mad and flip shit on you, it's already baked into the cake. Best advice: face it head on and just tell him how you feel.

    The OP is a fucking pussy if he can't grow the balls to end a relationship he doesn't want.
