Our expert says:
This is a VIRTUAL relationship, conducted electronically. See a counsellor to work out your own issues. Surely ending the relationship WITHOUT telling him why would be unnecessarily hurtful ? Why not simply tell him you find you are developing more felings for him than either of you had expected, and in terms of the agreement he had asked for, you feel it'd be wise to end the relationship now, as friends ?
For you to be mildly sad for a short while would be reasonable. To allow yourself to feel DEVASTATED sounds a bit over the top and self-indulgent. Remember there were mostly good times, and you had agreed that the relationship would never become deeper or more complex than it already was, so you haven't actually lost anything you either had or planned to have.
