When I was younger I was always told to: “Not express love for boys in any form, because it would backfire. Or they wouldn’t get the thrill of chasing me.” I’ve learned that isn’t true at all? People like knowing you care. If you truly love and care about someone, it’s ok to let them know. The right person will just be thankful to have your support in general. I wish I had realized this years earlier, because it would have helped me out a lot. Bottom line: just tell people you love and care for them. It’s better than bottling it up.
