Advice: Dear friends, Is it okay to not want to be friends anymore after a breakup on good terms?


So long story short, I broke up with my boyfriend a while ago. It was on good terms though and although he says he still has strong feelings, he took it pretty well. 

However, he really wants to be friends still. And not just that, he says that if we returns to just being friends, it would feel like all of our time spent together would be lost. He still wants to be affectionate, closer etc just more casually and without being serious. I was ok with this at first but lately I have been feeling extremely stressed out at the thought of it. 

I feel like i'm completely over him, ready to move on to a new stage of life. I feel like having him around will only hurt me more and bring me back into the past. I've been considering ending our friendship altogether, however, I really feel bad for him. He has no friends and he still sees me as his best friend. 

He's really struggling with loneliness at the moment and I just can't bring myself to hurt him anymore. But the thought of remaining in this situation is stressing me out like hell. I don't want it anymore in all honesty, I want a new start. Really don't know what to do
