<3 /••••this is pretty much how parents feel about their children. If they (the children) had any idea how very dearly they are loved they would surely be more careful with that which was in trusted to us & we hold so very precious as they're trying to pry our griping fingers from their arms as they struggle to escape our clutches (which is as it should be) and become young adults.
I certainly have no problem here...it's much better to share your feelings and not fear rejection or being hurt. If him/her doesn't feel the same wouldn't you rather know now than later?? So let those feelings be known..if you don't receive the response you were hoping for just smile and back off..it's all you can do. You can't force someone to love you.
