Also. Not all unrequited love has to occupy your day. Sometimes, when someone expresses love for you, you can discover you had an unrequited love for them that makes your heart swell. Not discovered as in, you never knew you were interested, but rather, you discover that you craved the attention from that specific person without ever having had to feel the pain. I've had that happen before when roleplaying with a so-called canon character on F-list; it's wonderful.
