I am in need for some advice. I have been in a relationship with a great guy for the past 8+ years. I love him dearly but it has come to the point where I see there is no future since we want different things from our lives. I know that letting the relationship go on can only make me miserable in the long run and, no matter how much I do not want to admit it, I know deep inside that I should end it. This has been my only relationship and I have no experience in such things. Being honest and open and making clear the reasons why I cannot go on seems right. However, I do not know how to do it. I am afraid that it will be easy for me to get pulled back into the relationship because we truly love wach other very much. Do you have any past experience in similar situations? Did you find a way to make things a bit easier emotionally?
