  • If your gut instinct is telling you that this guy is possible danger, listen to it! If there is something wrong with him mentally, no matter how nice you break up with him, it might not matter.
    Be careful and tell someone else (that isn't virtual) about your feelings.

  • Just sit him down and tell him that after 2 months of dating him, that you "just aren't feeling it", and it isn't fair to him to have you lead him on that way.

    Then shake his hand, and tell him "good Luck in Life" and go on your merry way

  • Just be honest with him, well mostly honest. Tell him you just don't "click" and don't see a future together. I had to do the same thing about a year ago and it worked out alright. Of course there was more to it but if I had told him the 100% true reason why I didn't want to stay together I would've sounded like an extreme b*tch and he probably would have been hurt.

  • I have been in that situation before. We dated for almost two months and one day I just told him that I didn't think our relationship was getting anywhere. He was perfectly fine with it and now we're still friends. Like the others said, just be honest. Well, don't say you feel "uneasy", just tell him that you'd rather be friends than take this any further. Good luck!

  • I tell guys "this just isnt working for me". That doesn't put blame on anyone and there are no personal rejection feelings.

  • Do it on a "Post It" Remember that episode of Sex and the City. Just kidding, don't do that. Just be honest with him; that's the only thing you can do to keep your integrity intact.

  • you say you feel uneasy about it... is there a reason you feel uneasy? The reason I ask is I was with a bf that had problems mentally and I know what uneasy feels like . If you are afraid he might do something drastic, then you might want to get someone preferably a friend of his to be there when you do it, that way he has someone to turn to and you also have someone to stand in, if things get bad. If it's not like that, then the best way to tell him is by saying that things just are working out right now for you, and you would like to be friends, but that you need space to work things out for yourself... he won't feel like it's on him and that way you have time to slowing get it through to him in a nice way, that it's a better idea to break up officially.
