Mary Portas One Life: Over To You

Mary Portas

Every week in Grazia, Mary Portas listens to one reader's life dilemma and gives her honest, straight-talking advice. Today, it's your turn to help out Grazia reader Sarah. She's into a guy, but it never seems like the right time for them to get together... Or is that just her excuse? Is it time she faced up to her feelings and tell him how she feels before it's too late?

‘Have I lost my chance with Mr Right?’
Two years ago I met a guy through friends who gave me butterflies in my stomach and still does. But nothing happened back then because he had a girlfriend and even though he asked to meet when they split up, I avoided it because I wasn’t sure if he was on the rebound or not. I never stopped liking him though and, on a night out recently, he confessed that he’d always been into me, but knew I didn’t feel the same because of how I’d behaved in the past. The problem now is that he’s just got a new girlfriend. So should I finally tell him how I feel or keep quiet?
