Is it time for us to go our separate ways?

I'm 25 and my boyfriend is 23. We've been dating for 10 months now. (i'm his second girlfriend) I'm not very good at this whole breaking up/ is it time to break up thing.
My boyfriend is a nice guy, one of the nicest. I am treated like one of the disney characters that found her prince charming. He has me up on a pedestal i don't want to be on, i don't like it i feel uncomfortable. He always does what i want to do, and i don't think thats very fair. I try to ask him "is there anything you want to do?" but all i get is "as long as i'm with you" or "whatever makes you happy."
It was fun at first, but lately i feel like the two of us are just pals that hang out all the time and watch movies or play video games. We've stopped kissing other than to say bye to each other pretty much and we've never had sex.
I'll go through these moments where i'll like him a lot and then change my mind and think i only like him as a friend.
A lot things get on my nerves now that didn't use to. I don't enjoy texting him much anymore, and would rather stay at home most days or hang out with my friends who i've not seen much.
I don't see myself with him in the next year, i don't see myself married to him. He's too forgetful, he farts and picks his nose too much and i don't feel like i have enough in common with him anymore.
I started talking to a guy friend over the course of the past few weeks and i think about him a lot more than i should for someone thats in a relationship. I feel awful.
Is it time to split? How do you break it off with a nice guy who hasn't really done anything wrong?
