how do you actually walk away?
I'm in a relationship that has run its course. I'm sure of it - we've been distant, not communicating, and I'm happier when I'm out of the apartment, with other friends. However, I really, truly care about my boyfriend. I don't want to lose him as a friend, but I won't be able to keep him in my life. I can't be friends with people I've dated, it's just too hard and I'm too emotional about it. I've had relationships that ended before, but i'm really struggling with this one. I feel like I'm breaking my own heart, but neither of us are putting in the effort here, so things are just falling apart. How can I muster the courage to break it off?
