    It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return, but what hurts even more is to love someone and to never find the courage to tell them. Have you ever been in love with a guy and never told him?

    Love is not MUTE. Love is motivational, empowering, even infuriating, but not lackluster or lackadaisical. If you really loved a guy, you couldn't be stopped from saying it or showing it (I think the latter is most poignant). You must have just been infatuated, smitten, or lusting.

    Sometimes circumstances don't always allow us to speak as freely as we would like. Mike and I met when he was 15. Paul, his father was the new pastor of the church of which I was the pianist, and I became Mike's new piano teacher. We grew very close as teacher/student and also as friends. A year later, his family decided to move from Vegas to Missouri and he wanted to stay in Vegas and finish his last 2 years of high school. I was approached and asked if it would be possible to have him stay with me. I agreed and for the next 2 years we lived together and I was his 'surrogate parent'. When he graduated he immediately went into the Air Force and was transferred to Korea and I never saw him again. So even though I did show him in many different ways, I was never really able to tell him.

    That's DIFFERENT. It's hard to pinpoint mutual love if your love is illegal or a trespass. I'm guessing you were not 17? In this case, if it really was love, you showed it best by not pursuing a physical love with him. He saw you as a teacher, father, religious consult, and friend. Are you sure it wasn't just an infatuation; teachers aren't immune to them.
