    Because true love means you cannot make someone else love you back

    Because majority of the time the person you love doesn't love you back, or doesn't love you enough.

    Anytime you feel that strongly about someone, there is also the possibility of great pain--even if they do not mean to inflict it.  When you love someone their words hold more weight as do their actions.  But when both people are on the same page with regard to the relationship it is wonderful and worth the risk.

    It may be simply semantics but I would suggest that it is the absence of love that is painful.  Otherwise, having unrequited love would not be painful.  It is the absence of love from the object of yours that is painful.

    Love can be painful only when you either 1) love someone who doesn't love you back, or 2) you are both in love, in a relationship, but trust is missing. When someone cheats on you, leaves you, abuses you, that is an abuse of your trust towards them.

    Love is not painful. It's the lack of love that hurts! To love and be loved in return is to experience joy!
    If loving someone brings you pain it's because you are with the wrong person. Each of us selects our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
    Hopefully with time comes wisdom and we become better at choosing people we open our hearts to.
