I feel sorry for the poor guy. I can't understand that if you really are in tune with your feelings then why is it so hard to come out and tell him how you feel and break it off? Why continue to waste time? He may be floored but life has to go on. He's just going to have to get over it. A lot of us out here have been rejected so it ain't something uncommon for him to have to face. That's life. Just end the relationship and move on.
