The Shores of Alone
Hi, I just thought I would add my two cents, even though there has been lots of good advice. I think a lot depends on if he is really in love with someone else. Sometimes people are dating, or have been together for awhile, but are not that close anymore. Maybe he thinks of you as more than a friend, in that case, but you may never know, unless you tell him. That is my romantic side speaking. On the other side,though, he probably will disappoint you if he is involved with someone else and why hurt yourself for nothing, by giving him a reason to reject your love? I have done this to myself far too often, and it hurts more than saying nothing. Right now I am struggling not to write to someone that I know, because he has told me..does not want me anymore. Yet we were friends for 10 years, amongst the times we were more. And it kills me to let go of the friendship, but I can't just be his friend, and we both know it. Don't ask me why I think that will help you, I have just confused myself, too.
Anyway, good luck. This is something that is very hurtful, no matter how you look at it.
