Why do you feel the need to hide your affection for someone? Are they in a relationship already? Are you in the "Friend Zone" or Do you fear rejection? Either way (you) are torturing yourself by choosing to stay around them silently. If it not's worth going after then you need to distance yourself. Rejection is better than silent torture. Thankfully there are over 7 Billion other people on this planet!
i undersand what your saying 100%. we are not in the friend zone just we slept together a couple times kinda like a "fwb" thing but of course i got more emotionally involoved than they did and now im paying for it!
