Poll: When SHOULDN'T You Tell Someone You Like Them?
So I'm just wondering what everyone thinks about this.
I'm a firm believer that if you like or are falling for someone, even if you don't intend to act on it, you need to tell them. I'm not saying you should tell everyone you have the slightest crush on that you like them, but if that crush develops into actual feelings (like or love), I think you have to tell them.
Even if you don't expect a relationship, or you are already getting over those feelings, I think that the other person can always sense them, and not coming clear or clearing them up will lead to an awkwardness that can't be overcome. You can tell them everything (including that you're not actually interested in a relationship) but you should tell them.
What do you think? Is there a time when you SHOULDN'T tell someone? Let me know your thoughts :)
