How can I change a relationship from fuck buddy to just friends?

I've recently delved into the world of casual sex. After a recent breakup, I slept with the first guy I was remotely attracted to. We've gotten together a few times on "fuck buddy" terms, but my initial slight attraction has dissipated into none. The thing is, he's a cool guy and I'd like to try to keep him as a friend if possible. How do tell him I don't want to fuck him anymore? Saying straight up that I don't find him sexually attractive seems too cruel, especially if I want to keep the possibility of being friends. He is not the most attractive guy in the world and he told me it's been years since he's been with someone so I don't want to damage his self-esteem any further. Help?
P.S. If anyone well-experienced in the trials and tribulations of casual sex, fuck buddies, friends with benefits, etc. would like to be someone I can email with questions as they come up (and they're coming up right and left as I meet more men!), please email me at email@example.com
