RomanceClass.com Advice
Since you are such good friends, you should be able to sit down and talk this through. Explain gently that you really care about him but that your feelings have shifted from romantic to just very close friendship. Let him know how much he means and that you think it's time for you to both branch out and try new relationships. Understand that he may be very hurt by this because it will probably be news to him that you want out. But if you handle it properly then you both will come out the other side in fine shape. A little shaken, no doubt, and there will probably be some tears too, but it's for the best.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.
