nope i dont, i think, but dont shut up! :p:

it sounds like you 2 just need to talk about it and what exactly is going to be going on

If your both in love go for it! tho i think he might be hideing it because he doesnt want to risk the friendship. Like i said, just talk to him and it should be fine

I used to be in love with Britney Spears, and then with Micha Barton...I've learnt to supress this love though.

This gets me too. I used to have a friend who "was in love with me" :rolleyes: but when he realised nothing could happen he said: "would it just be easier if i stopped myself likeing you??" And that totally messed me up, i couldn't understand how you could stop yourself loving or liking someone, i mean if i could do that my problems would be solved!

But he was adamant you could push these feeling to a part of the brain where it kinda stops being prominent!! I really dunno how that works tho!!! x

yes.
he can suppress it.
if he doesn't think of you all the time and has his mind cast on something else then he will be 'suppressing' his love. don't ask me, but i compiled this reply from the dictionary...

It's 'conceal', not 'suppress'. You may conceal love, by suppressing any and all expression thereof. Love, as an abstract concept, cannot be suppressed.

You can pretend it isn't there and live trying to forget about it. Then it tends to come around and come back at the most inappropriate times.

The ideal recourse, for me, would have to be a cathartic one:

That particular collection chronicles my progression throughout various points along the emotional spectrum, with respect to one girl. Enough said.

yes you can, love is not just an abstract boun, it also refers to feelings and thoughts, which is is perfectly possible to supress within oneself

'Love' as a collection or amalgamation of various thoughts and emotions; still abstract. I fear that this whole discussion will devolve into a semantic argument, but emotions have both internal and external facets. 'Love' is, to me, a state of mind, of which many subordinate emotions are symptomatic. One might only venture to suppress the visible manifestation of any such symptoms, but self-actualisation extends only so far. Certainly, under the given pretext, this lad probably means to internalise his apparitions until such a time as when his feelings for her fade in accordance with her memory, and expression along these lines is no longer so imperative; that is, so long as he can withhold from placing her upon a mental pedestal. I may confess to having done that once, and much to my cost; whether he is able to refrain from doing likewise, remains to be seen.

You can, but it eats you up inside.
