I have been in this situation before, and it may seem you'd like to make HIM happy. But in order to make someone happy, you must be happy yourself. You're obviously not happy... and if he likes/loves you as much as he says, then he enjoy seeing you happy. Explain it to him. If it breaks his heart, let it. It will make him stronger. And it'll make you a stronger person for being able to be honest. Honesty gets you a lot more places than lying. Just remember you're selling yourself short by making someone else happy before yourself when it comes to love.

ashley, you should just break up with him. he'll get over it soon enough, if youre feeling uncomfortable or just dont wanna stay in the relationship then be true to yourself; you are more important then him. break it to him gently and just say that you're always gonna be there as a friend.
if he starts harrassing you or begs, ignore it..
it will all work out.

you would sacrifice your own happiness for someone else?

end it.
not only are you hurting him with this. your hurting yourself more.
