Ok, I am opening this up for discussion because I really don't know what to do. In March, my brother brought two of his friends to visit me. We had a great time and I knew the girl that was his friend because she is from the same small town. Well we hung out the whole time and she for some reason made a real impression on me. I love being with her right from the beginning and I arranged for us to be alone one day because I just wanted to explore what that meant. Well I knew that I was falling for her somewhat. Well I didn't say anything and they went back home. I remained in touch and we emailed each other almost every day. I still didn't tell her how I felt. Well I had a vacation and went to visit my brother, other family and her. I spent almost all of my time with her and it was wonderful. I just couldn't get up the nerve to tell her how I felt because where we were brought up and raised people don't have open minds. You are a girl then you are to marry a man and have kids. That's it-end of story. So now I have left, but I think I need to tell her anyway. I would hate to lose her as a friend, but I have to tell her. She lives 2,000 miles away and nothing will happen I am sure, but I have to tell her how I feel. Do you think I should tell her?
