I think you've come to a very mature decision. You clearly thought this through immensely and came to this conclusion by trusting your heart. A part of you was silenced, like you said. And the one part that remained is what your heart really desires. I'm proud of you! You are a very mature and wise woman!!
As far as your fear of not being able to come up with a good reason to give Justin, that's completely understandable. I have dealt with that before. I go into the situation thinking I know exactly what I'm going to say, but then when I start talking I realize I'm completely blindsiding him, he has no idea what's going on, and I feel like an idiot because I can't offer a better explanation. All I can tell you is to maintain your composure, tone of voice, and sincerity no matter what his reaction is. Don't get defensive if he disagrees with you, and don't get really emotional and sobby if he does. You may feel heartless, but it will be over with before you know it. Plus, like you said he might already be on to your intentions and that's what he wants to chat about tonight. Just be honest with him and tell him that even though things started out very well, you feel as though they're not really progressing into anything more. I wouldn't tell him you want to date other guys... that will only make him feel worse. You can leave that part out! Just tell him you don't feel as much of a connection as you thought you would, and you had a lot of fun with him but that it's turned into more of a platonic feeling.
Unfortunately, breaking up with someone is never going to be easy. Someone almost always gets hurt. I actually find it harder to break up with someone than to be broken up with myself! At least if THEY do it, I know it wasn't a decision I made and had to live with. It was out of my control, and that makes me feel less responsible if it turns out to be a bad move.
Well good luck to you, Stacy. I am very excited for you as you start on your journey back into the dating world! Can't wait to hear about your experiences! I am going to live vicariously through you, so you'd better keep writing!!
