    Ah unrequited love! The stuff that romance novels are made of! lol

    It's usually a young person's crush, or some innocence , mixed with testosterone. "How can this person not me crazy about me too?"

    I think gay men who seek out or fall in love with straight men are addicted to that feeling.

    Experience? Oh, just some.

    While even true love might rarely be equally shared--and I'm fine with that as it creates some interesting dynamics--unrequited love might sometimes be a bit of a misnomer regardless its romanticization.

    Sometimes you buy something that looked good enough in the store--you might even have tried it on--but when you get it home put it on and move around you realize it doesn't fit at all. Outside the store light it doesn't look right. You no longer love what you return.

    Sometimes the return of what one person thinks of as love is not love in return but that doesn't make the originating "love" unrequited.

    If someone, for instance, shows love by being abusive, as an xcousin of mine did, then my rejecting that person and their so-called love is not me being un-requiting, rather I'd be being quite requiting.

    My blocking of another person's abuse is the appropriate, requited, return of their trying to subject me to their abuse. So while they might think of their being abusive as being loving and therefore my response as un-requiting, from my point of view, I'm merely protecting myself, not being offensive at all, my blocking them from damaging me is my own love requiting.

    So what makes for unrequited love? That would be delusion, however diluted, romantically, bitter sweet it might seem.

    Probably rightly called infatuation rather than love - almost always one-sided
