How to break up with online boyfriend

This is a really sticky situation so be prepared. I have a transgender ftm boyfriend over the internet whom i have never met, i dont really know how we became a “thing” but it happened and i regret it :s. I want to break up with them but i have no idea how, its a really tough situation because they have self harmed in the past and i do not want to be the cause of it if i break up with them.. I have nothing agains transgenders but it just feels strange, i dont know I just really need help to stop this before it gets out of hand. Thanks.

    [Hmmm…. that is a bit of a sticky situation. Well, first of all, there must have been something that set this thing off. Did you always know he was transgender? Did you make your apprehension clear from the beginning? Or did you get caught up in the heat of the moment and not really think about it until the flames had died down and reality set in? Either option is ok, I’m just curious here.

    I would have an honest conversation with him. And I would try NOT to do it over the internet. The facelessness of the internet can make things actually hurt worse, and that’s the last thing you want to do to him. It’s obvious you care about his well-being, so make that CLEAR. You can’t force yourself to be attracted to someone you’re not, so don’t try. But be very clear about your intentions, and watch for signs of impending self-harm. Call his parents (?), friends, something if you have to.

    Whatever you do, don’t just wander away or break it off abruptly. Because you will wonder for the rest of your life what happened. Tread lightly and be honest.
