Maybe it's not so much whether you admit your real feelings (after all, why play games if you have "real" feelings). Maybe, instead, it's more a matter of making sure he knows that even though you have those real feelings, that doesn't mean you necessarily approve of everything he does and thinks (because if what you have is real you'll see that he's an individual, respect that, but also be honest about acknowledging and voicing differences (in a positive way)). It just seems to me if you play your cards right (which means not playing any games at all), it won't matter if there's a chase, because then there will be the "how to keep what he's found" factor. (But maybe I don't know what I'm talking about anyway...... )
As strange is it sounds, a part of the enjoyment for some people is "the game" which is trying to get what you believe you can't have. Then once the person tells you their feelings, the game is no longer there and the person leaves. At least, that's what I've noticed during my youth.
If it's a true love, then the person will stay anyhow.
ps. Just because men usually do the chasing, sometimes it's nice being chased (from a man's standpoint). It makes the man feel wanted and needed too.
