I'm one click from sending a simple message to a friend.
"I still miss you dearly..."

The relationship never took off. Despite both agreeing that we should stick as friends, they never explicitly said that nothing could ever occur and that nobody could predict the future.

I want to send it. One part of me whats to express myself, the other half wonders if this'll be a burden.

Suggestions? Keep it tucked away?

um.. I'd say if you were never involved it's not entirely appropriate. esp. the dearly bit.

If you really need to send something, then I'd go for a more casual, hey. long time no speak, how you been? x

but really, what are you trying to achieve by sending it?

The message is so wonderfully worded that it would be a crime not to send it.

There is no achievement in sending it. It won't change minds, it's a simple message that's an expression of myself.

It's not that we weren't involved, it just never took off.
This is a friend that I've known for five years, we did like each other.

Give it a go.
"What if" is a hell of a thing to get over.
If you try things and they dont work out you cant say you didnt give it your best effort.

I'd find it really sweet if I got that off a guy.

Go for it!

I vote send it. You've known this person for 5 years so you're entitled to miss them.

If you don't do it you'll never know...
At least if you send the message you'll be in a better position to know where you stand.

Send it. You're making her feel wanted, and apparently women like men who can show their emotions, so it's a win-win. Even if it didn't take off before, it might make her come around to the idea that you're boyfriend material.

The "dearly" bit makes me feel vaguely ill.


Still, send it, just perhaps worded a tad more informally.

I'll remove it. You're probably right about it being too much.

I was writing it in a solemn kind of mood with Dear etc. We occasionally write with that so it didn't seem so odd.

Dearly sounds a bit over the top, but it's a nice thing to say
