There's nothing wrong with expressing a certain feeling that you may have about another person to that very person.
With that being said, there's definitely nothing wrong with expressing a feeling that you may have had about another person to that same person...
Since it is something in the past, mentioning it isn't as effective as if it was something in the present...but even then...like..if it was in the present...what's wrong with telling that person?
The only thing that could be "wrong" is if the person who admits something is very concerned with ... how that other person may react to what is being admitted.
If the something that is being revealed is certainly a positive thing...something on the lines of being complimentary... there shouldn't be any remorse..you know...there shouldn't be any reason to hold back from saying whatever it is.
To be concerned with how the other person may react to what you are saying...when what you are saying has to do with something that is going on right now...well...that concern is definitely understandable...
but still -
it is noteworthy to consider how the person who you are telling...may NOT be concerned with appearances...instead..encourages one to speak what is either currently in or has been on...their mind.
With that being said - I apologize if ever I have disappeared off the face of the earth without fair warning...
there's a war going on outside no man is safe from, it doesnt matter if you're 3 foot or 8'1.
