I don't really want a relationship right now, so how do I tell my boyfriend and still be friends with him?

we're in high school and we've been together for three months but I've only known him for four months but he's really sweet but the last thing I need right now is a boyfriend...someone please help!

Why did you get with him in the first place? One thing you have to understand is your own feelings and if you didn't know that you weren't ready for this then why'd did you start this relationship in the first place? How is this in any way fair to the guy/girl your breaking up with? I don't think not having time for a relationship is a good excuse and if whatever the reason is that you don't have time for a relationship, talk to him about it! I'm almost certain that he'll understand and try to adjust the relationship to your needs. And if he doesn't, then wasn't worth it. And if you don't try to fix it then you never really like him as much as you say you do, cause love always finds a way, which sometimes includes sacrifice.

Well it was really rushed into the relationship but that's what I thought I wanted at the time. But things got confusing and I don't know what to do

We'll whatever you do dont make the same mistake as the relationship, don't rush it, take some time to think about it or talk to someone you trust.

I just went through the same experience with my girlfriend... Only we've been bf/gf for 9 months already.
You have to explain how you feel. Be completely honest and explain how much you want to be friends.
My girlfriend still cries, and has made several attempts to persuade me to "give her another chance". But she doesn't want to let me go completely and neither do I. So we are going to be the best of friends.
It may not be that hard on him. He's a guy. We bounce back quick. Even us "sensitive" guys.

Here is an exact quote, of what I said to my girlfriend LAST. (Though the actual conversations have gone on for several straight hours... About 12 now)
"I want you to know that I didn't "loose interest" in you. If anything, my love had grown greatly for you since we met. But I know where it stops... And I've tried to wait it out, see if my feelings towards you changed... But it's aparent that I have and always will only be able to see you as my best friend, whom I would do anything for."

I'm no one to talk bc I'm one of those guys that rush into a relationship but iv been dumped pretty hard and that killed me then later on down the rode I would find someone " hotter " then once my ex saw I moved on she would want me back. Don't get me wrong I'm no stud but u seem attractive so a guy would b hurt if he lost someone who is nice to him most importantly.
