Right, I can't take it anymore. I'm gonna do something completely stupid...I'll probably be kicking myself for it afterwards but this is busting my damn gut so much just trying to keep it in, so I have no choice. I'm going to tell my ex that I'm still in love with her. Call me an idiot, I may be setting myself up for a huge disappointment but I've tried the "just friends" thing, and it hasn't worked. This will have one of 2 outcomes. Either she feels the same way, or she doesn't and then I can just finally come to terms with that and move on once and for all. This just isn't doing me any favours. Over the past few weeks we've been talking, and we've been getting along really well again. I mean REALLY well. I actually haven't felt THIS strongly about her since we first started dating....which leads me to believe....maybe.....just MAYBE.....there is a tiny percentage of a chance that she feels the same way. I dunno....this is really tearing me up inside, I don't wanna ruin a perfectly good friendship, but on the other hand I can't live like this forever. I just can't. And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, maybe Lady Luck wil work in my favour for once? I know, I know, highly unlikely, but I have to know one way or the other! I HAVE TO! I'll never be able to forgive myself if later I found out that she'd felt the same way. Guess at the same time I'm going to prepare myself for the worst. If she says no, then that's it. I'm breaking off all contact with her once and for all.....until I KNOW I'm 100% over her! I feel like I'm gonna be physically sick right now just trying to get my head around all this. Does anyone have any ideas how I could break this to her? I mean obviously I don't wanna go charging in there with "I LOVE YOU!!!" That'll just scare her away even more. I want her to take the hint, but I don't want to push her away so that she spends the rest of her life hating me. How can I break this to her gently? Without coming on too strong? Please, this is like a life or death situation for me.
