    In my last year of sixth form I was dating a guy and over summer we made it official. Since then he's gone to university and I'm on a Further Education course and we're completely different people now and all that jazz. Since starting at college I've met someone and I know I can't keep things going with my boyfriend but I don't know how to break up with him.

    There are a number of reasons I want to break up with him, but do I tell him I met someone else or leave that part out?

    I'd leave that part out. He may think you've been cheating on him, if you mention someone else.

    It's up to you.
    Though in this age, I'm sure he would find out at some point.

    Leave it out, you're going to break up with him anyway, it's not like it's a deciding factor and it seems like you'll just hurt his feelings, explain to him the main reasons you want to break up and leave it at that.

    I wouldn't leave it out. If he finds out later he will be furious and even more upset; possibly downright distrusting of future relationships.
