Well, its hard to tell it directly to her boyfriend the truth but it's the only way to break up with her boyfriend. I can't say if that will end up to a friendship still but I doubt it! Well, it is also depend on how their relationship flows before. But your friend needs to tell her boyfriend about her feeling.

I agree, I don't think it would end in a friendship status, but she does need to be honest with the guy. If she doesn't love him then she shouldn't continue the relationship. He needs to know how she honestly feels about him.

Maybe she can make a conversation with him sincerely and tell him the truth. To be honest is a good idea and will make things much better, do you think so? To tell him that you don't love him any more and make a wish that he can find a gril who loves him more and forever.

Well i had a guy who loved me and forcebly took out that yes from my mouth, but from that time i was never happy and content with him even if i tried to be with. After being hard times with him in carrying out this sick relationship.One day i had to tell him the water was over the brim, i just end up calling him and telling him that i am no more intrested in continuing the relationship.because it made me suffocated, tied, and behaving fake.it is better to be direct and clear rather than just struggle.

in the first place, why did she say yes to him during the time he courted her, and she never love him anyway.? well, i think she should be honest with him and say the things she wanted to say! yeah, true it will hurt him but it will hurt him more if she continue to pretend that she love him. I think they can be friends but there is now this " gap " between them. Anyways time heals, if he cant forgive her now, then maybe just wait for the time when he's ready.

Well she should probably just be honest with him. Sit him down and just let him know that although she cares for him deeply she doesnt feel like they should be together because she doesnt feel that way about him anymore. And that she hopes that they could remain friends.WHich is something she shouldnt count on.. I think remaining friends after breaking up is very difficult to do. Good luck to her
