There are people who are able to hide their true feelings towards someone of the opposite gender while in public, or even in situations where others can barge in. While thinking on this subject I remembered a friend of mine. We studied at the same college in Cambridge (UK). He had a girlfriend, a former school mate, but nobody knew about this. For some reason he told me a lot about their relationship. Before he left for Cambridge they accidentally met in town. They agreed to have a chat at her home. They went back to their village using different routes, Four months in Cambridge and he contracted a rare pneumonia virus strain. He passed away after a few days in hospital. His body was sent home. The villagers only realised something was going on when she fainted after hearing the news. For months she visited his grave on a regular basis. I met his uncle during the summer holidays. He told me part of the story and stressed that nobody had an inkling. He asked me if I knew anything. Have any of you done the same thing, cloaking your feelings and remain true to the one you care for? Or do you have any comment?

Personally I do not know why they hid it. Presumably it was due to a conservative society. This was way back in the 1970's, when my country was beginning to be exposed to the world. Maybe at that time teenagers in their village were not supposed to show their feelings towards the opposite gender without parental approval. Things have changed a lot.

Oh sure, I've done this before, particularly if it's pertaining to a family member or a close friend. I guess as you say it's a hidden form of love. For example there are certain people that are in our lives and in my eyes they can do no wrong. I know it's not the right thing to do because when somebody is doing wrong, we should speak up and call it out. But this is one area of weakness where I will have to learn to work on getting better at. I guess my way of smoothing it over is by convincing myself that no one's perfect. Happy mylot!

When it comes to those close to us it becomes difficult for us to make certain decisions. This is true for most of us.
