    Say you want to stay friends with them and not hurt them but you just don't see it working out in the long term. What is the best way to break up with someone whilst still remaining close/friends with them?

    Tell them how you feel, though I think if you have been dating for a long time they will definitely be hurt.

    Be honest. If the other person still has romantic feelings for you, they won't want to be your friend at first, but there's always hope for the future.

    Well, I'd say over a year. How long have you been dating?

    be as honest and as gentle as possible. Theres no way you can do it in a "nice way" Dont do it where there is other people around keep it private and have the respect for them to do it to thier face, dont do it by text or by email or even a phone call. Have the guts to face it.

    Agreed and don't drag it out. Just be honest with them.
