That makes you true soul mates....go for it. I don't know if she feels the same way but if she does, you are on your way to a good marriage.. After 20 years, and the romance is there..propose..You have spent enough time being friends..time to meet your soul mate and lover. Can't get a better combination than that.I married my best friend..Over 30 years now..He is the best..All the best:)
I don't know but your in trouble. She may not want to be in love, or maybe she does. What do you want? If you want to be in love with some one and have them love you then stop wasting time and tell her how you feel. If she does not love you back then at least you are free to find love elsewhere. If you are okay with remaining friends and love at a distance because you cannot bear losing her friendship then keep things as they are. either way there's turmoil ahead, but thats what makes life exciting.
she may also have fallin for you and is waiting for you to mack your move so go for it tell her how you feel if she feels the same way then great and if she dusint then at least you wont have to wonder if she feels what you feel for her
I think he should tell her, because she may also have loved him from a far for 20 years.. :) yet she might not know how to tell him that she feels the same.. as she may not want to scare him away, by telling him how she feels..?
I am in the same situation, I have loved a guy for 20 years from a-far, but been unable to say anything, as I don't know how he feels about me.
I have no idea how he feels, yet he likes the sound of my voice and talking to me on the phone everyday, night, lots of times throughout the day.
I cannot read him, as I have not seen him for so many years.
But do tell her, as then at least you'll know. (hope it went well)
