U is for Unrequited Love

The funny thing about unrequited love is that Snake and I both started in that position. We were both dating other people and were friends. Nothing more.

We danced around the subject of dating for almost 6 months. We would tease about how we should date, how the other partner just wasn’t right, parrying and then stepping back.

When we finally decided to give it a try, it clicked. And excluding a rare time in college, we have stayed firmly together.

But unrequited love doesn’t always mean romantic love. That’s the first place most people jump when they think about it, but it can also be family or friends.

I found this quote that really summed up unrequited love for me:

“Why do you look so sad?”

“Because you speak to me in words and I look at you with feelings.”

Leo Tolstoy

Isn’t that unrequited love? Having someone speak to you in words when you want the rush of the feelings that you feel for them? That can be any relationship. And it hurts no matter what the relationship is.

  1. It seems to me that this situation happens very often in real life. And the person who experiences these unrequited feelings undoubtedly suffers. But you won’t blame someone who doesn’t love for what he doesn’t love.
