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.

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.

Love for a person who does not love you back.
Usually a close friend/past lover. You get to know that person, think they are brilliant, fall for them and can't get over them. It can affect your drive for finding a relationship.
However, if you are a sufferer of unrequited love, usually this is because you wouldn't want a partner that wasn't them. Similar to oneism.
Unrequited love can be one of the most emotionally painful experiences to go through, even worse than a break-up, because you will have never had the satisfaction of ever being with that person in a relationship.
Unrequited love is usually not linked with sexual desire, as the sufferer feels what could be considered a genuine obsession and love for the boy/girl in question.
Almost everyone on the planet will have experienced unrequited love at some point, and many will have been the subject of unrequited love.
Many sufferers of unrequited love do not tell their desired partner of their feelings due to fear of losing a friendship with that person. After all, it is better to be friends and be able to talk to them and see them than for them to block you out completely.
An anecdote from the popular Disney film Alladin helps to sum up unrequited love. Alladin can wish for all the money, power and fame in the world, but he will never be able to make Jasmine love him.

Unfortunately, the likeness stops there as Alladin and Jasmine end up together in the film. More often than not unrequited love amounts to nothing.
I love you, but you won't ever love me back.

Why don't you love me?

I'm getting depressed about you because you won't love me back.

Why do you only see me as a friend?

It's when a block of ice makes you melt.
Poet: When you give someone your whole heart and she doesn't want it, you cannot take it back. It's gone forever (ie. unrequited love sucks).

You: Holy fuck!!! Now what? It´s not even like I wanted anything!

Friend: Stick by her, if she´s worth it... One day she may get that this shit is for free.

You: Cool! I´ll try that...

Is when a person is madly in love with someone, and the one she/he loves does not return the love. Often, the person in love tries desperately to show her love, but to no avail.

The person may feel rejection, depression, mania, or anxiety, because her love isn't returned, but it doesn't stop her from devoting all her love anyhow.

She may feel like she's going crazy!
Euphoria Godsent, wrote a song about unrequited love called, "Maybe You"ll Love Me."

The lyrics are, Why do you hate me? Always reject me. Seems like everything I do, it's never enough for you. Why do you neglect me? I feel like I'm nothing....
