Tell him how you feel because you deserve the chance to move forward — or move on. You deserve to know whether it is time to take that next step with him or whether it is time for you to heal your heart and search for someone new.

Tell him how you feel because you have been dying to get this off your chest. You have been itching to get the words out of your mouth. Even though you have terrified of his reaction, all you really want is to see that reaction, to see whether you are on the same page, to see whether he has been pining after you for as long as you have been pining after him. You are tired of questioning. You just want to know.
Tell him how you feel because the timing is never going to be right. You are always going to come up with a new excuse about why you are not ready. You are always going to tell yourself tomorrow is a better day. But you do not want to hide behind your procrastination forever. You do not want to trick yourself into thinking there is a right and a wrong way to do this because as long as you speak from the heart, you are on a good path.
Tell him how you feel because it is better to risk rejection than to risk regret. Although it might hurt to hear he does not feel the same, it will hurt even more if he walks away without ever knowing how you truly felt about him. It will hurt even more if you feel like you should have done more like you should have spoken sooner like you missed your only opportunity at a love story with him. You do not want to be kicking yourself for keeping quiet. You do not want to wonder what could have happened if you made another choice.
Tell him how you feel because it is better than watching him closely and searching for signs he feels the same. It is better than torturing yourself by rereading texts, trying to figure out whether there is a hidden message behind his words, whether his compliments were casual or whether they meant something more, whether you are on your way to a serious commitment or whether he is only entertaining you until he finds someone who gets him more.
