  • Definitely love.

    The experience of being adored by someone you don't care for is uncomfortable, disorienting and creepy.

    On the other hand, loving someone is a great source of elation, joy and energy --and since it never really matters to how we feel, how someone else feels toward us while we're adoring them is pretty irrelevant (think of all the famous people who are loved at, who never experience the love personally, but the fans seem to get a lot out of it) unless we're loving them to get something, which is just emotional blackmail.

  • Be loved and never love. That way I never would experience heartache. Because sometimes that can be the most difficult pain to handle.

  • Both kinda stink. I would say love someone who didn't love me. I think if you are capable of love you will eventually find someone who loves you too :)
