  • Dang :( I would say to just be honest and tell him exactly what you just wrote. Answer any questions he may have after that.

  • Tell him the truth but in a nice way. Men tend to get extremely defensive and may strike back so always prepare yourself and weigh the pros and cons.

  • OUCH!!! If you are asking how you tell him without hurting his feelings...that is not going to happen. Oh, Gosh..I am soo sorry that you are in this tight spot. Is the proposal...a marriage proposal??? take some time to think this through...maybe you just have a case of cold feet. Whenever I am faced with a major life decision of crisis.. I take 3 days to mull it over before I do anything. After the 3 days usually things are alot clearer... Good Luck to ya. Hope you work it through.

  • I just told a guy exactly that, that I loved him but was not in love with him. It wasn't that hard to say and he took it better than I thought he would.
