Yesterday I received an email saying, "I did something everyone says us, girls, shouldn't do. I was the first to say 'I love you' to my boyfriend. I spent several days prior overcoming the overwhelming desire to let my boyfriend know about my feelings, coming up with multiple excuses both for and against why I should and shouldn't do this. Eventually, I decided to go through with it, for we've been in a relationship for over a year now and, from my point of view, doing something like that shouldn't be shameful. Several days later I regretted my decision very much. He never said he loved me back and to top it off, things had gotten really awkward," wroteEmma.
