Love that is not returned is?

“The love that lasts longest is the love that is never returned.”

–W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)

love-chart.png According to my small-sampling, unscientific poll, 77.78% believe it! (At the time). Now it has flopped: 22.22% believe it!

However, one respondent described unrequited love as “an infatuation, totally irrational love.” Another person pointed out that “…a love relationship between two people is one that is mutually shared; one could go on ‘loving’ someone who was unattainable forever because there is no real work to be done to maintain the relationship; that being in an active, two-sided love relationship takes some effort.”

Well, duh!

I still dream about Karen.
