    I need help guys.... I've started a romantic kinda short story and iv let it get away from me.... and now i have totally no idea how to take it forward... I need an idea as to why you would tell someone you didnt love them, when in fact you do.. What would you be trying to protect them from?

    Hope this makes sense

    He is in love with someone else and you're trying not to interfer and hurt him because you love him so much.

    He's leaving to live in a different country and you don't want to comlicate things.

    You're scared of what could happen.

    If you're together it could be because you find it hard to express your feelings. Maybe you've cheated / done something and you feel guilty so you can't say it.

    - You're scared of rejection
    - You know that you are not good enough for them, and they would be miserable with you
    - You are a dangerous person (Eg: involved in crime) and they would be in danger if they were with you
    - You know it wouldn't last. (Eg: You have to go off to war, you are dying, etc...) and you would just end up bringing you both sadness and sorrow when it ended.
    - It is forbidden/taboo (Eg: you are gay and you love someone of the same sex but your family would disown you if they found out).

    etc...

    Ok so it goes like this yea? He may be feeling guilty about something he has done to his ex partner like maybe he killed her and people had thought it was an accident. and he'd got away with it. then he meets a new partner and the same old feelings come back to him. he feels guilty about what he has done to his ex. He wants to say he loves this person but does not want the same thing to happen again? Oh i dont know.lol. but good luck xx
