Isnt it so painful when you know that the one you are loving is just so many miles away from you. He seems so near yet unreachable. how would you bear the idea? it just hurts so much. you can do nothing but wonder why, ask queations that nobody can even answer, cry the whole time and never be seen. How painful is it? Have you gone thru the same thing?

Yes it has happened to me before. My father always used to tell me that you should always find someone that loves you more than you love them. I never understood what he meant until I fell in love with someone that didn't love me back and that was a hurting feeling (believe me). I was a little depressed, but then I realized that there are other fish in the sea, so there's no need in pining away over this one guy. I got over it, and found someone who does love me as much as I love him. :)

Please donot adopt give and take policy.Give and forget and then one can enjoy. In this situation,one will be the happiest person and if by mistake unknowingly somebody reciprocates the return back and then you will feel luckiest person in the world. What do you think?.......

I'm going through it right now as well. The one I love... and who professes to love me, divorced two years ago... then turned around and went back to the ex! He's been in and out of that house over and over again... yet each time he goes back! We'll stop talking for a while... then he'll feel like he's ready to have a relationship with me... he'll move out... we start seeing one another... then he moves back! We've recently decided, yet again, to stop seeing each other... of course my world is in pieces... but I have to find some way of moving on and letting this go once and for all!

Forget and forgive such people and start afresh with someone else. Why you break your head, spoil your mind hankering on a subject which has no reciprocal arrangement.

That is an extremely painful situation to be in, adversitycity. I don't I could keep it up very long. If this person doesn't love you back, try to move on. There is someone near you who will love you. I know that doesn't sound helpful, but I would think you are just breaking your own heart waiting for someone who doesn't love you.

if i loved someone that didn't love me back, i would learn how to find other people to occupy my time and hang out with. there is always someone else out there for you....no sense on wasting time chasing someone who doesn't feel the same way.
