Has there ever been a time in your life that you just loved someone but were afraid to tell them? maybe a friend or someone you grew up with. If so why didn't you tell them?

i don't hold anything back personally.... and sometimes that can get me into trouble... I can be mean sometimes, unintentionally and when i'm done i am soo sorry for doing it, and i can tell people nerve racking things, like i did my husband when i knew i wanted to be with him, in asking him to be the father of my babies, it just comes out, and i don't mean to most of the time... but it happens... I never regret anything, because first off it doesn't get you anywhere, and second of all what you do is what you need to do, but sometimes i do wish i would have worded things differently... Maybe not in the case of my husband, but with friends especially.... Ash...

right at this moment, i wish i could do the same thing... but some things, your just too scared to talk about.... and it's not that their a bad thing, it's just that you can get so nervous and riled up about it that you don't know which way to turn, and what things to say, even if they come from the bottom of your heart...

Well I think you know me or at least my personality well enough to know that I never hold back on anything. But in this situation it may shock you to know that I may be a little reserved in my actions. I have had crushes on guys and was unable to tell them because of fear of rejection. I have had strong feelings for friends. But when it came to confronting those feelings I always opted to not risk losing a friendship. Sometimes a person has to look at the big picture before acting. I'm sure through the years I have missed out on a great relationship by being this way. But at one time in my life I actually believed it was better to be safe then sorry.

Oh yes...sounds very familiar!!!! I guess I never told anybody that I was in love with him before making sure the other person had feelings for me too. I guess it was the fear of looking like an idiot or something like that... I guess I was always afraid of the answer, getting "no" as an answer, I mean. Pretty stupid, perhaps...but well, that's how it was back then. Now, I'm happily married.

i did. we were friends and i guess, our friendship is more important to me than myself that time. surely if you put love between friendship, sometimes, it ruins everything. and honestly i still wonder upto now what if...

Yeah i have / do loved someone but am afraid of telling her, because first of all, she supposedly has a boyfriend (I dont know what happened between them), she is one of my best friends and i dont want to ruin that, and I dont know if she likes me too. Plus, I dont want the whole school going around saying that I confessed and she refused/accepted and stuff. Then my parents would find out and get mad since they dont believe that teens should be dating.
