Fell In Love But I Don't Think It Can Work

I met someone that has completely changed my outlook on life. But I'm older and she's younger and despite it being one of the most cathartic experiences I've ever had, the signs tell me that what existed only existed that night. I'm completely heartbroken and I think I just want to get over this. I would ideally like the person to know how I feel, and then move on knowing at least I was open and honest. I've had a long time to think about this and I know it is not lust, infatuation or obsession. This is love, and I wish I could figure out a way to get over it.

1st in love age don't matter and yes open up and be honest girls like honesty

thank you so much for your reply. Well, a couple of weeks on and I'm still just as perplexed. I have thought about just saying how I feel, and let things pan out the way they will inevitably. I think there is a part of me that is still scared of the rejection - although I know it must resolve itself somehow. Some part of me, perhaps a very small part - believes that she may feel the same way. Being friends, in the vague way that we are now, doesn't seem to be helping at all. If anything it is making it harder to move on...

If you want to get over it, there's no reason why you shouldn't tell her what it meant to you and move in. But that could have a huge impact on her, and make closure very difficult. <br />

If it doesn't then at least you can move on. Maybe hearing her say that she doesn't love is what you need, as harsh as it seems. <br />

Who knows, maybe she feels the same? If not, well, time really does heal all wounds, I promise.
