If you give love ,you receive it in return. Some people, however,take the other party's love for granted. While they wish to be tenderly cared for, they are reckless in their own behavior.They act in a way which shows that they do not care about the possible bad or dangerous results of their actions.

I think you should always take your time and get to know the person you think you love. Love is not a game and the love must be shared. Some times there is more love on one side that the other and these relationships do not always work out. Take your time talk alot about what each of you expect out of the relationship. Then you need to understand that even though you are a couple you are also individuals. If you give up who you are to be what the other person needs you loose yourself.

Loving someone never guarantees that they will love you back, that's a chance we have to take and a risk that we must be willing to take in order to find true love. That's also how we know it is true love, if we take the chance, and love is returned. I also think that no one should take love for granted because it can be taken it away. My ex husband is an example of that, he wasn't around for myself or our children, then when I told him I wanted a divorce, that's when he wanted to try to make it right. I had tried to get him to marriage counseling for years, and he always said, if I wanted to go I could but he didn't need it. Then when I filed for divorce, he realized that he had taken my love for granted, he thought I would always put up with his awful ways, but when I didn't, he wanted to change, too little too late. Now, I'm married to a great guy and I try not to take his love for granted, and he doesn't take mine for granted either.

Well, I may not agree with you. ^_^ If you require to receive love in return, it may not be a true love. I believe true love is unconditional, when you give it away, you don't require to receive it in return. Moreover, it's not necessary when someone loves you, you will love the person. Of coz, you can't take it for granted too. It's just my opinion. ^_^

Yes unfortunately some people truly are ungrateful and take advantage of another person's love. Some people mistake love and kindness for weakness.

That is so very true. And the ones that take the love for granted, always wonder why they are constantly ending up alone in their lives, with no one to care for them and love them.

You are right that some people do take other peoples love for granted. And the sad fact is they don't always realize what they had until that person has had enough and moved on. I always say in situations like this what comes around goes around.

Yeah, I totally agree with you on that. I have been there on both sides and it sucks when you're the one who is so in love, and the other person doesn't love you the same way.
