    If i loved someone i wouldn't ask for anything in return, its a given but its seems like others do.

    idk but i think that its too broad of a statement and overly simplified question to begin with...but i think true love requires a give and take and needs trust and love to be shared between the 2 for it to work so yeah true love demands (asks)for love and respect and trust otherwise there is no relationship...

    ...the problem lies in the application of the word 'true'...socially speaking (as a realist)...id disagree...metaphysically speaking (as an idealist)..i would agree;..true love: as a hopeless, helpless form of happiness? im working on that one :)...usually when i say :love:.....:poo:

    well- taken literally; I really don't think a relationship would work if neither person were to ask for anything, ever.
    Nothing would ever get done- and I doubt a relationship where both people were agreeing, psychic, mindless zombies could be considered a 'true love'. If it was... then damn, true love sounds effing boring. -__-

    I think the asking and the giving can be a meaningful part of the intimacy...J

    I said 'disagree'
    No relationship should be all give, give, give and nothing in return.

    I also chose disagree, for the same reasons those above gave.

    False because to have true love means you need true love back off the other person, if it isnt reciprocated then its either a crush or a strong infatuation

    I wish this phrase could exist. Basic human nature will always ask for something in return.

    I think if it's true love you'll do anything for them even if they don't feel the same way. However, I think true love asks for true love back in a way.

    Disagree. Love in itself indicates that there's some unspoken mutuality and exclusivity to it and natural inclination to reciprocate and be loyal. That's asking a lot and without it there isn't any love, just one-way stupidity, imo.

    Stupidity? Why?

    Yeah.. dont confuse love with pure devotion. Love may incorporate this way of thinking, but it's not the only definitive aspect. Loves natural and encompasses many aspects, and it's not something you can write on a page. It's different for everyone and everything.

    I kinda don't like thinking about love so logically.

    Exactly.. kinda my point. But it brings that annoying saying for some people.

    You just know...:)

    Yeah, it is an annoying phrase but so true. I am a romantic at heart though and it's all feeling, logic has no place.

    I feel nothing but frustrated at the attempt of trying to explain what love is.

    Yeah i find with each word or phrase I write about it, the more the explanation unwravels.
