“A lot of people walk around not saying how they feel about each other. But every so often you'll meet someone who is brave enough to admit there is something between you two. Because the chances are if you feel it so deeply they do to. You just can't let fear get in the way of it. I can promise you something, the only thing worse than rejection is finding out years later when it's too late that they felt the exact same way about you.”
