Original Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
I hear a couple stories that people break up with their long-time partner claiming that they love that person "too much." Is this logical? thanks for your time!

User Submitted Advice from a 13-20 year old Male
Love requires reciprocation

What -I think- "love too much" means is that the one who feels in love with another person is making WAY TOO MUCH of the relationship (or wished-for relationship) in his/her mind, and it isn't necessarily mutual. The wisher gets hung up on the romantic ideal and tries to align it with the object of affection.

This is not "loving too much" (so what you're saying is true: it doesn't make sense), it is "dreaming too much". Love implies reciprocation.
