In English law, is talking about feelings for someone privately a form of harassment?
For example: John confides in Claire that he has feelings for Lucy. Lucy then breaks John's trust and passes on what John confided in her to Lucy.
In English law, has John harassed Lucy?

Don't be daft. People who like to pretend that just expressing a thought is "harassment" lack the emotional IQ to function amongst us.

Sounds like gossiping more then harrassment...... 'feelings' do not come into ANY law in the world, laws is about facts and proving facts

How is that harrassement? It's a comment that is all.

The Equality Act says it’s harassment where the behaviour is meant to or has the effect of either:
-violating your dignity
-creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment
So someone saying they have feelings for another person whether to a third party or to the person themselves is not harassment.
