Basically the way someone will break up with you if they are trying put it nicely (see euphemism). The word "just" is the word that hurts. It's like saying, "Let's never go further than being friends. Never." Take out the "just" and it doesn't seem so bad, right?
"Hey Paul, I really like you, let's just be friends." Ehh, this doesn't work.. There has to be a "but" in there.

"Hey Paul, I really like you, but let's just be friends." Perrrfect. That one hurts more than a freight train.

Just Friends phrase - I don't just want you to mourn the loss; I want to remind you of it every day. I want you to suffer. I want you to envy. I want you to die slowly, a bit at a time. And I want you to smile and thank me for it.
Girl: Let's just be friends.

Guy: O.k. I'll still hang out with you, I guess. Hopefully, I'll eventually be able to win you over from those assholes and you'll realize that I'm the one for you.

Girl: Nope. I love being treated like shit. Later.

Don't be fooled by my "friendly" approach to this long-awaited break-up: I don't look forward to seeing you again in the near or distant future.
Your conduct during this "relationship" has been of such an annoying nature that we can never, ever be friends.
Me: "Let's just be friends."
Fool: "Ok. So, what are you doing this weekend?"
Me: "You don't get it, do you?"

Slang for "I've found someone better."
In Slang: "I'm sorry. Lets just be friends."
In English: "You suck. I've found someone better."

What a person (usually a women) says to someone who has revealed their romantic interest to them.

A somewhat passive aggressive way of rejecting someone.
Let's just be friends okay? I still want to talk and hang out with you every once and a while - (Keep you around just in case all other options fail) But I'm just not interested in you that way.

The default rejection line given to men by women. This line will almost always be followed by no other reason backing it up. When a woman says this, she really means "pleae get out of my face and never talk to me again, and you have a very small penis".
That new girl told Xioni she just wants to be friends, she must smoke crack.
