16 Heartbreaking Confessions That Prove Unrequited Love Is Hell

The greatest loves are undeclared.

"The ultimate love I believe to be secret love," wrote Jōchō Yamamoto in Book I of Hagakure, the 18th century book of Samurai aphorisms. "Once shared, love shrinks in stature.

These confessions of unrequited love on Whisper speak to that bittersweet truth: the longing, the ache, and the agony of unconfessed love.
