Lili's belated Valentine's Day thought

I think a lot of people believe that it is a mark of empathy or maturity to be more interested in loving someone else than caring about how much they are loved by that person. We are told that it is narcissism when we concern ourselves about admiration and love from others. Actually, that's crap. What kind of relationship do you think you might be in if the other person doesn't love you much, or you wouldn't really know one way or the other, or you aren't too fussed? Whatever it might be, it isn't a relationship. It's impossible to have a relationship with a doormat.
