Do You Love Someone Who Doesn't Love You?

Parul Solanki
What do you do when you love someone who doesn't love you? While moping and trying to hang on is usually your first reaction, the best course of action in this case is to accept the reality and try to move on.
"If I never met you, I wouldn't like you. If I didn't like you, I wouldn't love you. If I didn't love you, I wouldn't miss you. But I did, I do, and I will."
It is the pain that rips you apart, the feeling of being unloved by the one whom you love with all your heart. So do you love someone who doesn't love you? Well, then you will know the dire, helpless feelings that are associated with a situation where you love someone that you can't have.
These feelings are especially aggravated when you know that the person you love is probably the ONE for you. Most of the people hang on with the hope that they can get the other person to love them back and yet these hopes never materialize, leaving you distraught and teary eyed.
Unrequited love is something that all of us experience and yet it does not always work out the way you want it to. Waiting for the love to be reciprocated can cause a lot of heartache. Difficult as it may sound, the best course of action is to thus, move on with your life.

What To Do When the Person You Love Doesn't Love You Back?

Accept the Reality

When we are in love with someone it feels like he/she is the only person that will make us happy. What we fail to realize is that we can never be happy with the person who will not love us.
So even though you might be ready to commit for life, the person you are in love with does not share the same feelings. So instead of sitting around moping away, accept that the love is not mutual and try to move on in life.
Do not invest any more time or thought or energy in this person. Acceptance and realization of these facts will allow you to change your focus and take the first steps towards moving on.

Move on

As easy as it may sound, a relationship breakup is probably the most difficult part. Cry your heart out and then start by throwing away any of the photos and mementos that may remind you of the happy times that you spent together.
Stay away from places and things that might remind you of him/her. Instead do things that will keep you busy such as spending time with friends, doing the things that you like to do and which make you happy. This will make you stop fantasizing about the person and make you look at other things in life.

Fall in Love

If someone doesn't like you and is still with you, then they may not be putting a lot of themselves in the bargain. A willingness to accept little in return while hanging around and moping after someone who isn't available shows how you value yourself and your love.
Instead stop torturing yourself about how inadequate you are and how great the other person is and move on in life. Pay attention to yourself and do not dwell on unnecessary things. With time you will learn to forget and fall in love again.
True love is when two people are able to emotionally and mentally share the feelings for each other. This makes the love healthy, balanced, and just right for a person. So if you have expressed your love for someone and he/she does not seem to love you back, then do not waste your love who does not care for it.
Although you love someone who doesn't love you, remember that it is not the end of the world. In time you would surely meet the person who not only makes you happy, but loves you to pieces as well.
