Nano Fiction 19 : Unrequited Love

Unrequited love or one-sided love is the love that is not openly reciprocated or understood as such by the beloved. The beloved may not be aware of the admirer's deep and strong romantic affection or consciously reject it. It can be carried on forever, with no hope of being loved back. 

One sided love seems more like a punishment than a happy state of being. To love someone who doesn't love our back seems like a disaster. With no hope of the love being returned in some measure some day. Not even admired in return.

What good is such love? That cannot be indulged in, celebrated, danced or sung to? A love that cannot enfold you securely with your loved one? Lonely love of this kind then feeds on itself, resulting in frustration, obsession and emptiness. It becomes a painful emotion. 

You may glimpse your ideal in someone, but it may just result into unrequited love. It is continued love without any labels and bonds that define a relationship. 

One cannot relate for Meera's one sided love for Krishna. She lived a divine life. But in reality, you reach such an emotional stalemate that your feelings no longer can die, you are forced to stifle them.

It only depends on the strength of your personality whether you handle it and let it energize you or fade you away like Devdas?

Dear Cupid, I wish you always hit both sides equally! With this here's the next Nano Fiction! I have loads to study for now, but I am working on some interesting posts to come out soon. Till then, love yourself first, stay happy and motivated. :D


  1. Jilted lover throwing acid is one of the worst consequence of one sided love. But there are many advantages as well, like you learn to care for others , you start liking and understanding their religion as well. You become a better person. I have myself experienced this, although not everyone may agree. Nicely written post , aysh. I respect your opinion on one sided love. Keep writing :) Love :)

    1. People throwing acid are no examples of lovers. Because you do not harm/destroy the people you love.

      Anyways, "understanding religion"!!? Wuhu, you seem to be one example of such one sided love, it seems. But you know, it's okay, because many of us wished we were somewhere else, with someone else, but in life, we will and are always somewhere, with someone we always deserved to be with. It all tallies in the end! :)

  2. Hahahah :) I'm so in love with your never ending positivity :) Yes, I do like someone , but I'm not sure if this is love or just another attraction.

    1. All the best. :P

      Although I write about love all the time, sometimes it does seem to be a waste of time, altogether. :P

  3. Okk. I think we should take our talks on DM. Your blog gets too messy, I feel.
