Tell him, but be very honest about it. Mention the good things about him too, but tell him why you are not interested. Most men can handle it and many upstanding men actually respect such honesty from a woman. And if he is so weak he cannot handle it that's really his fault, not yours. Most can handle being dumped honestly as long as it isn't cruel or stupid. Sounds like he can handle it, plus you don't want to drag this out too long. It could make him worse off emotionally.

that so hard!if im the one in your situation, i will be honest with him...coz when you tell him that you love him only because of his condition, he will felt it somehow and get hurt and both of you will be in trouble in the end...be honest, tell him the truth, and make sure that even you dont love him the way he wanted to, he still have you even as a friend and he is not alone...
