I'm sorry. I was too afraid to risk our friendship for what I really wanted. We both went into relationships with other people. Now, years later, I think back on some of our conversations, and the times we spent together, and I know I made a huge mistake in never telling you how I felt.
I know you ended up in several painful relationships over the years, and it hurts to think that I might have been able to prevent that if I'd shown you what a man that really loves a woman should treat her like.
I haven't met your husband. From what you've said, he sounds like a great guy. And I do smile a little when one of our mutual friends (who has met him), says that he reminds her of...me.
B, it's been a long time, but to this day I do love you.
