I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year and I'm not sure if my heart is in it anymore. I don’t know what to do. What should I do to let him know I don’t like him anymore?

Well, it depends on how direct you want to be. The more direct you are, the easier it will actually be for him because he won't need to wonder what you mean when you say, “I’m not attracted to you anymore, you shit.” Directness will also rid him of any suspicion that you still really care about him, or that there is any possibility of getting back together. You could always just be mature and sit the guy down and tell him it’s over, but that takes balls. Being really upfront with someone when you're breaking his pitiful heart is really hard. But here are some less direct, more immature ways to do it that will be much easier on you. You could suddenly become hideous or start farting way more often. You could mysteriously develop some raging endocrine disorder that makes you completely insane. Or there’s the classic, “I think I’m gay.” That happened to me once. It totally worked. But all these things require a lot of involvement for you, and time for him to realize that you're a stupid girlfriend, which means more time that you have to stay with him. So honestly, you should just tell him how you feel.
