    How can I tell him I don't love him anymore without hurting his feelings?

    we've been a relationship for almost a year now, the we broke up for 3 weeks but we've recently fixed things I guess and we're back together, but the problem is I just don't feel the same way I used to feel about him because I don't think he's changed from what made us depart because he always make me feel as if am in a relationship alone or he's making me a favor that we're together and i've tried speaking to him but he doesn't take me seriously.

    You can't. Rip the band aid off, and just tell him how you feel.

    I agree with Lisa.  There is no way to avoid the heartache that comes with breakups.  Separation on any level is painful.  Don't worry about hurting his feelings.  You will hurt too, but the sooner you cut the ties, the sooner you will get over it.  That's life.

    I agree with Lisa and Dora. I was once told you are doing the other person a favor by letting them go. They can then move on easier since you told them the truth, and it makes it easier for them going forward.

    I agree with the other responses in that it will hurt no matter what you do.  however, if you value yourself and him (even if you do not love him) you will be honest so that you can both move on. what hurts the most is if you drag this out. Holding onto someone in case nothing better comes along is awful

    He'll recover.
    If you've only been dating for less than a year and were broken it up for 3 weeks that's not exactly a "long-term" relationship.
    In addition if he really does make you feel like he's doing (you) a "favor" by dating you I'm certain (he'll) have no problem moving on.
    Too often people think it's "romantic" to breakup and makeup.
    Sometimes it's time to just call it a wrap.
