How do i break up with a NICE boyfriend

Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
Me and my boyfriend have been together over 3 years and we were living together since 2 years ago, but lately, i felt that he is not the one i want, not because i hv seen someone else, i just feel that "I don't need him" and i may hv a better future without him. My boyfriend is very nice to me, he'll do whatever i ask him to do, I don't want to hurt him, and the main problem is, he is living with me at "Mine" house, so i'm not able to move out & i know he loves me alot and it's make me keep thinking is that right for me to break up with him .....? please help. Advice
You need to tell him the truth but in a nice way.

Tell him how much you admire him as a person and that you have enjoyed being with him for several years. But that things change and you are no longer feeling connected with him the way you used to.

Give him time to find a new place to live so the break won't be so hurtful. In fact be very active in helping him find a new place and helping him move out. Promise him you will still be his friend and that you still care for him.

It's going to be painful no matter what you do, so try your hardest to be gentle with him.

Good luck! George
