Boyfriend Won't Let Me Break Up With Him

Group Therapy: Boyfriend Won't Let Me Break Up With Him

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

No, literally, he won't let me break up with him. I have been thinking about this for probably the past month (out of the three that we've been dating) and I am 94% sure that there is no chance that my bf and I are going anywhere. But I am a pacifist and am only 82% sure that I want to break it off with him.

He is a really great guy and I still want to be friends and all of our friends think we're a great couple and all of that jazz . . . but I just don't feel anything for him and although we are technically in a relationship he has always just acted like a friend toward me.


So for the past two weeks I've been trying to get some time alone with him so we can talk about just being friends again, but I can never get time alone. Whenever we get together he always wants to go to some event that a friend is having, or play games with his little sister, or just hang out at some very public place where we are very likely to run into some mutual friend.

I'm a fairly private person and feel like we should be by ourselves (or at least around people that we don't know) to have this conversation, but (I don't know if I am being paranoid or not) he seems to be trying to prevent this. This isn't necessarily a bad relationship, it just isn't something I want right now. What should I do?
