Once we realize we like someone, we quickly try to hide it, most times. We think that secrecy can protect us, from what? Once our object of affection knows about our feelings, we feel vulnerable. And we are, aren't we? Funny how some of the time, liking someone is dangerous business. It's not unlike putting yourself out on display and saying, here are my feelings, look at them--and having people gawk at you then walk away one by one, saying nothing. And you're left there feeling like so much has been taken from you even though you're essentially intact.
