Feelings are not sinful if they go no further. If you have fantasized or something like that, I recommend going to a different priest. If, however, you do go to this priest for this kind of confession, it is not necessary that you tell him he is the one.
Just a word of gentle caution: Be careful not to walk where you're tempted to harm someone you care about--or yourself. God bless.
Been there, done it. The thoughts I mean, better clarify. Didn't act on them but struggled with them. I told a different priest and didn't name the other priest. He told me NOT to tell anything like that to the priest you have the feelings towards and it's best to get a different confessor. I never confess with him and the feelings went away. I was lonely, going through a divorce, and had just returned to the Church after 9 years so it was a lot of confusion. Don't give it power, focus on the Lord and talk to a different priest. Keep distance. Pray for him and for yourself to see that this is probably a crush and don't entertain fantasies.
God bless you.
