I Won't Say This To Your Face

I love you. I am completely in love with you. I know you don't feel the same way, and you probably never will. I see you almost everyday and it just makes my urge to tell you so much stronger. But I won't, because I fear you will reject me, that things will become awkward between us. You're the closest thing to a best friend I've ever known, I can't picture my future without you by my side. But I know you won't be there, and I will never know your gentle caress, the sweetness of your lips and the warmth of your embrace. You will move on, all I can hope for is that you find someone who will treat you right, who gives you unconditional love, and sticks by you no matter what life throws at you. As for me... All I want for myself is the emotional strength to get over you.

Oh my gosh I really feel your pain.. I do... I've been there so many times..., but even though this might sound like a cliche... it's far better having her as a friend in your life than not having her there at all, but I do however hope for the best for you! Good luck and hang in there. If she is really a good friend she'll have comprehension for your feelings and you should be able to talk it out even if it does not result in a romantic connection. I am sure it will help you get the closure you need so you both can continue on having a healthy friendship based on trust, communication and mutual support!

Not really, although she doesn't seem to eager on a relationship. By which I mean I don't think she'd wanna touch one with a ten foot pole. I can't point to example x, y and z, but I've been around her long enough to know.

has she told you that she has no intrest in you? romanticaly.

Thank you again for your advice. Since I am so scared to confess I do try the subtle approaches, I believe actions speak louder than words. I suppose time will tell how this turns out...

Thanks for your advice Joatjackson, it means a lot. I don't want to lose her as a friend, and I've read and heard all too often about people confessing their love to a friend/close friend/best friend, the end result being a swift end to the relationship. It's really eating me up inside but I really don't want to mess things up between us.
