I would just be honest and say that you just don't see a future with him. That you think he is a wonderful person, but that he deserves to have someone that is able to love him the same way in return and that you just aren't there and don't see that person being you. Make a lot of "I" statements and not "you" statements so that he understands that these are your own feelings, not something he did to make you feel that way. Sort of the 'it's not you, it's me' kind of thing.
I think for the most part you should know within the first couple of weeks if the person you are dating is someone you could see yourself growing old with. Considering you don't see or talk often it would take longer to know that. If you don't see each other that often and don't talk too often, breaking it off shouldn't be too difficult.
