Here’s What Happens When You Love Someone More Than They Love You

It’s no fun being in a relationship that feels unequal in some way, and that includes when you seem to love someone more than they love you. Relationship expert Alexis Nicole White says people who’ve been let down by love repeatedly may be more willing to be in this uneven type of relationship, saying “[They’re] more likely to accept the lack of reciprocity for the sake of saying [they have] someone. Regretfully, [they] inevitably end up settling.” She says if you believe you are in this type of situation you should seek couples counseling which can help you “see if your view of the relationship is accurate or healthy,” and says sometimes these types of relationships can be saved. However, she adds, “It is never okay to just accept the bare minimum from someone.”
