Unrequited love is Hell. All you do is spend your days thinking of someone who will never think of you. You'd do anything for that person, and they'll do nothing for you. You can't forget them, and there's tearing you apart.
Unrequited love is like waiting for an airplane at a train station.

May 12 Word of the Day
When someone goes to the gym and spends 90% of the time on their phones scrolling through social media
Looks like its thumb day again for Jimmy with his usual routing... 3 sets of 5 snapchat selfies and 10 sets of scrolling through facebook until exhaustion

Its the feeling of being completely, hopelessly, desperately in love with someone, all the while knowing that your feelings will never reach them.

Its contradictory in that you feel incredible because you love someone so much, but also at the same time you feel almost overwhelming despair because you will never know what it is like to hold them in your arms, or touch their face, or kiss their lips. You will never know what it is like to wake-up next to them in bed in the morning, bodies entwined.

It can be masochistic in nature- it causes such heartache, but you enjoy loving the person so much, you willingly let your heart go through the agony, so you can hold onto something- I don't know, maybe hope?

In any case, unrequited love is a very sad thing.

Possibly the worst emotion ever felt. Makes you feel unbelievably sad, and nothing, not even chocolate can make you happier. It also sucks that you try to get over them, but you can't get your mind off them. It's especially harder when they are one of your good friends and they tell you who they like.
Susie has an unrequited love for Thomas. Susie is Thomas' good friend. Susie likes/loves Thomas. Thomas likes someone else. Susie still talks to Thomas even though deep down inside, she still likes/loves him.

Loving someone in ways that are unexplainable. Although, your "spouse," or "love interest," makes you feel they are incapable of providing such love in return. It's waking up with them on your mind, sending text messages that seem like it takes an eternity to get a response to. Its loving someone so much, you allow them to hurt you, in hopes that they'll realize how much you care. It's having someone consistently tell you I'm not in love with you, but I have love for you, after a moment that to you felt so surreal. Its having hopes of a fairy tale with this person you love, yet having them feel as though they could never play that role in your cast... Its doing all you can to prove your love only to feel like it's still not enough and its still unappreciated. It hurts at times when you think about what's missing. But in those moments when you two are laughing or sharing a sweet moment, those times you hear them call you "babe," and "bae," you feel a connection and an undeniable emotion for this person, you feel a joy and excitement to have such a connection, and then you remember this person refuses to claim you or your heart. You feel lonely, in love.
Loving you leaves me secluded, almost suffocated and blue, I don't understand this unrequited love, its hurts, but I can't be through.

A love that is one-sided, malnourished, and weak.
It is felt only by one person for another that does not return the same feeling.
It is desperate, frustrating, and out-of-control. I am personally experiencing it now with a boy I am so deeply in love with. We are together, and his love for me was warm and all-encompassing a couple of months ago. Recently he revealed to me that he does not love me anymore. It feels as though I am suffering as much as if he passed. The grief is immense. He has told me that he still wants me around as his best friend. There is no light in his eyes when he says this. He is distant, detached, gone. I am neglected by his presence and his lost feelings for me. I feel absolutely lonely.
Now, I must do one of the hardest things of my life and tell the boy I love, the one I thought I would get married to and love endlessly, that my love has to end for my own sanity. I have to tell him there is no place for him in my life. A life I had always pictured with him in it. I must tell the one I love that I cannot live like this anymore.
"How can someone fall out of love with me and still want to be together?"
"That sounds like a unique case of unrequited love."
"I just cannot believe I still am so in love with him. I'd rather be in love with a stranger than in love like this."
