Don't wait, say it. Or you will regret later.

I had a friend of mine in college on whom I had a crush which gradually became love. I waited to say "I love you" to her for many years but everytime I backed off. She also expressed her affection towards me but I was foolish enough to let her go. She got married last year due to family reasons. I cry every night for her since then but what can I do now.I can blame no one but me. Its all my fault.

I had a similar problem a while ago, in high school. The guy I was in love with didn't marry, but he has been in a relationship for a few years. He attempted to tell me something, or to "hit on me" (but that's inappropriate), but I was shocked and didn't give him a chance. However now I have a boyfriend and I don't mind what happened with the other guy. I don't regret what I did, I just think everything happens for a reason. You were two, she could have said it first, don't blame it all on you. It wasn't in your destiny to go further, but you're left with good memories and a lesson. You'll get over it someday.

People are often shy about approaching someone like that. You might not have wanted to say you loved her yet, if it was just a crush. But you could have gotten to know her better. I think it's usually fear of rejection or some kind of fear of getting involved. So we "wait" too long. There is always someone else out there, though. Maybe you won't be so shy next time.

You are right. You should have told her. I had a friend a few years ago. He seemed interested in me and I considered the possibility of us being together. But he never said anything so I stopped caring. Now I learned that he was very much interested in me. But now I would say no. I like more daring men.
