    Do you regret not telling him/her how you truly feel?

    Does anyone else have serious regret even till this day, that you never told the person you like/love them because of fear of whatever sort, only til they are gone. Doesn't it hurt?

    Dammit.

    I regret it. I mean I didn't know him too well.. I regret not telling him that I like him. Even if he would reject me. I regret it and I really don't know what else to feel besides like huge * * * * .

    Damn my slight shyness and fear!

    Yes. The guy I loved now I've loved since I met him over 15 years ago. He had let me know then he wanted me but I was scared (though I fantasized about marrying and having children with him). Now we reconnected and he's so scarred from a bad relationship he never wants to get serious again. Had I told him then I wanted him he never would have met the one who scarred him and I wouldn't be alone at 39, hoping he comes back and trying to go on with my life.

    That is so heart breaking ...

    So hopefully if I ever see him. I must say something?

    Yes because you never know. I keep hoping that in my case it does work out, but if it doesn't, I'll always feel empty. Sort of reminds me of those movies where a couple loves each other but can't be together for whatever reason and marry people they don't really love. That's my biggest fear.

    I consider myself fortunate to have never been in that situation. But, if you have feelings for someone, let them be known. Even if they don't feel the same way, at least you know and it's better than going the rest of your life wondering "what if".

    See I always believed in that statement.. But it's hard. I am afraid of rejection. But now I know it's now or never.

    Me? no, but am going to start dating again. I just keep hoping he comes back but he hasn't called me in over 5 weeks so I'm kind of losing faith that he will. I keep asking myself why didn't I tell him this years ago? Maybe we'd be married and have kids and I wouldn't be spending time on a dating advice website.
