You sound too young to know what you want. Let them both go, and break the news to your family. Surely they won’t take it too badly.

I think you need to put your big girl panties on and just tell your parents what happened. You are an adult, you’re allowed to break up with or go out with whom ever you want. 

I would also suggest breaking it off with this new guy, you started dating him while you were still engaged? Not cool.. Not a good start to that relationship if you ask me. You need some time alone to figure out what “having a life” really means.

IMO you need time to gain independence and decide what you want out of life. I would go ahead and have fun with the ‘friend’, but hold off on any life long decision right now.

It sounds like you got engaged because you want to be free from your family. I think that you’re making a smart decision here to break it off and experience your life before settling down.

 As for your parents it sounds like they weren’t crazy about him anyways. Just tell them that you’ve talked to him and decided to end the relationship because you weren’t ready for that committment.

I’d give it a few months before telling them you’re dating someone new.
