    As soon as possible, tell him that you are beginning to feel that your acceptance may not have been the right thing to do. That you obviously love him as a friend and sometimes you get a bit confused about what that love means. Tell him that this isn't a rejection, but you need some time to think about your friendship and how dating might endanger that, and you think you and he should probably talk about what it would mean if you began to date.
    This should allow him to accept your backing out and also let you both do what should have been done anyway: talk about how a big change like that could affect what is obviously a very important relationship. You may end up seeing him as a love interest. Or maybe you will find that friendship is best for both of you.
    Just TALK with him. Be honest. Best friends do this.

    you need to talk to him as soon as you can. that way he doesnt feel as though hes being led on. it would be alright to let him know that you accepted his invite because you like to spend time with him but that you dont want him to get the wrong idea. let him know that you are there for him all the time but that your fortunate for your relationship as it is with him. let him know that the friendship means more to him and that you dont want to jepordize that in any way.
