I'm afraid of rejection.
I'm afraid of the words losing their meaning after repeated usage.
I'm afraid of confirming/ admitting my love for someone, then having to part with/ lose him/her.
I'm afraid of obtaining overwhelming love from the other.
I'm afraid of love.

Because rejection hurts and it figuratively kills you inside :(

I feel you; just close your eyes and take your leapt of faith. And perhaps to your personal surprise, you'll fly above all others.
(went through your problem today so trust a stranger a bit :P)

And for me, it's coming out in a few days, and yes, I'm am bloody terrified. *curls up into a ball*
TheFaultlnOurStars Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I feel the same way, except the fact that it's a girl, and I'm a girl is what makes it that much harder.
RubyDaSquirlz Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013  Student Writer
I know the feeling. I eventually couldn't hold it in anymore and told her. Her response was more heartbreaking than I imagined.
I'm not even sure if I feel the same way now towards her now, or whether I'm just ignoring it/covering it up. =/
Good luck with you though, hope you have a Heaven's-load more luck than I did. ~offers hug~
TheFaultlnOurStars Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

Why? Because it leaves you vulnerable to rejection. But take it from someone who hasn't said it and regretted it many times; you will survive rejection. Chances are you already have been rejected in one way or another. :)

It's better to try and fail than to not try, at least in love. Otherwise, you're always wondering "What if?" and that is a pain you don't want. (Although you can get it over it, I still think it's better to know.)

How would you feel if that person left your life tomorrow? What if that person met the love of their life and moved on? Wouldn't you rather know?

Being rejected hurts, being embarrassed can hurt too, but you can survive them. Good luck, ST.

Rejection. I was terrified of it too. >.<
Netheru Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013
Don't care about rejection it's something normal ... maybe he/she's not compatible with your personality or maybe he/she's happy with someone else. This is life good,bad who cares ? Life is awesome and you should enjoy it!

It's hard to say "I love you" to the person you LIKE because you LIKE them. I've always found it hard to love a person before you're ever sure their feelings reciprocate. It's easy to fall in love with the idea of them, or the idea of their love, though. I've done it many times.

One day you'll be at a point in your friendship where you feel you're good enough friends that even if he doesn't feel the same way, your friendship can recover. You'll also reach a point in your mind, where it's not worth brewing over him anymore, that it'd just be better to know a sad truth and be disappointed than to run circles through your head. Maybe you're already at this point, maybe not.
At this point, you should tell him something a little less overwhelming than "I love you." Tell him you like him.
I've done it once, and since I'm kind of a reserved person, I told him I didn't know how to show him I liked him in any way that isn't concrete. I was very blunt about it, because that's what I'm good at. I told him I liked him, and I wanted to know how he felt about that, and I got my answer. Say it in a way that reflects you, in a way that's most comfortable for you. I mean, it won't be comfortable, but overthinking it just makes it more difficult. Just say it like it's normal, because it is normal to like someone.

You are afraid of the unknown. You are afraid of giving someone else the complete and honest control over how you feel. These are perfectly acceptable feelings, but letting them hold you down forever, honestly, there's no quality of life there. You won't regret it, even if he doesn't feel the same way. I've been rejected, and it's difficult to hear that the person you have been thinking about so fondly for so long isn't going to be your boyfriend, but it's also relieving, you know? You can finally stop wondering, and you can focus on healing.

Also, hearing that you like him will make him start to think about you more, he'll admire your bravery and maybe he'll start to feel the same way... it happens that way more than you might think! ;)

i was scared to confess to my crush at first because i was afraid of rejection but i ran into him by accident one day so i finally decided to tell him... we've been together for a year now and he is a really amazing guy. i think you should try telling him because you'll never know the outcome.
TiteArumi Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I agree with limeheer.

But still, trust me, to say "I love you" can be a good thing. But this is your own choice, your own life, so I can't really help you. All I know is that when I said "I love you", four years before, it was the good choice for me, even if he didn't love me...
But I learned so much thing...
MysticMykaDacora Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013  Student General Artist
To say "I Love you" kinda means alot.
I never said I love you to the guy I like, but it got to him because bullies found out.
He's still my best friend.

My advice:
Say I love you to him.
If he loves you, he'll stay.
If not-
"If you love something, let it go"
limeheer Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013
becouse you understand the meaning of the words "i love you" and if you say them you will lose the control and hand it over to the person you said it to
