    I love you. I loved you many years ago, long before I met her, but you were taken. She and I are through. She was not always faithful to me and took so much from me. She wasn’t supportive of me in my career, which is very important to me. We’ve talked on and off over the last few years. We’ve kept it light and friendly. You are still with him and I know you have had better days, but I don’t want to cause you or your relationship any problems. I want to be respectful. I can’t help but feeling, however, that we would be so great together. We would create a comfortable and secure world together, giving us both the strength and nourishment to go out and achieve anything. I would like to jump into things with you but need to work on myself for a while. I also know that it is too soon and don’t know whether you view me the same way. I should probably tell you how I feel, but fear that it would be viewed as a very unwelcome advance.

      Wait before you do anything rash. You’ve recently been through a breakup and they’re in what looks like a strong and long term relationship with someone else. If she shows signs of having feelings for you confront her about them. If she doesn’t you should still tell her your feelings. If anything she deserves to know and you deserve to get it off your chest. Don’t come onto her though as long as she’s still in a relationship.

      @Emily – thanks for the advice. I’ve actually distanced myself from them for the moment because I feel too vulnerable. I’m honestly not sure what the current state of her relationship is as we don’t talk about these kinds of things. I don’t wish anything bad for them, but I do know that things have been rocky for them at times. She works hard and is a fighter, like me. We’ve both had to deal with spouses who take without at least trying to ensure that we won’t have to work until we’re 90 (among other things). I probably will end up maintaining this distance and just letting her fade back into distant memory.
