why are people afraid to admit their feelings?

I cant understand why people are afraid of telling someone how they feel. yeah there is rejection but what happens when the attraction is mutual which is my situation. and why are girls afraid to make the first move when the guy is completely clue less of her feelings.

    It's a gamble and people don't like to gamble with pain.

    If I tell you I love you and you politely say 'YUCK!' Then I feel pain for a long time.

    If I don't I can go on with my fantasies that you really secretly like me. And I don't get hurt until you get a girlfriend.

    Embarrassing to admit your personal feelings about someone else, and there is always a fear of rejection.
