Update: I decided I will eventually tell her, but I'll wait and see what happens first. I did ask her out a few weeks ago and though it felt awkward, she did say yes. Something serious came up though and she had to cancel.
It's up to the individual. In some cases telling does more harm than not telling. Gotta look at the particular situation and figure out what's the best thing to do. I personally have done it only once, I knew he wouldn't like me back, but I just needed to get it off my chest. No regrets there.
I would, you never know Not saying anything would drive me nuts
It depends on whether the person is a friend or not. It's a risk you take. It could cost you your friendship or heart.
I was friends with a guy and I decided to tell him i had feelings for him. To be honest, I thought he felt the same, but I was so wrong 😞 he didn't at all. I felt embarrassed and humiliated , but I hid my hurt and just carried on as usual around him. He gradually distanced himself and now we don't speak anymore. I regret telling him because I miss his friendship
In your case , you think she may not feel the same way , but you could be wrong and hopefully she does feel the same as you. If not, maybe you won't feel as humiliated as me because you don't seem to think she likes you anyway.
So you have to decide if you'll feel more hurt regretting not telling her , or more hurt if you were rejected by her 😊
I normally don't take risks in this area I try to find out if they like me beforehand even a little. I only ever blindly ask if I really like the gal or feel she's worth blindly taking a risk on which isn't usually.
Yes, but you may end up like I did, go from talkative to shy in 2.2 seconds. Avoiding me won't intiate a hello, sitting away from you at lunch table, blocking you on all social media and at work messenger. Well hey least you will know...
