How do I tell him I just want to be friends watch

    So i met a guy at uni, we get on really well, i thought i may like him more than a friend, so well we are now sort of acting as though we are a couple, although he has not asked me out a such and we dont call each other our boyrfriend/girlfriend.
    But recently ive decided i just want to be friends, however im pretty sure he wants more. I may not have always shown him i want to just be friends and may have led him on for the wrong reasons. I liked having someone close and liked the fact someone liked me, but have now come to terms this is not a good idea and the sooner i tell him the less he will get hurt.
    But i dont know how to bring it up? Sometimes iam mean to him and I dont know why, i think its because deep down i want him to not like to me then its easier for him to not like me like that.
    But hes a close friend, and i never want to loose that. How can i make sure we stay good friends and dont hurt his feelings?

    well it's not like you guys ever started anything. a relationship cannot be assumed in these circumstances, and maybe both of you definitely felt something was going to happen but you decided that you can't/won't have it happen. He's a good friend of yours, just sit him down and tell him maturely instead of over Facebook or email or text message because that's just as infantile as it can get.
