You say that “... it's very easy not to feel 'loved' the way you want to be loved, while the other person thinks they are doing a good job. Why? Because they think their way of love, is how you want to be loved”; and the reason you give for this is: “Since both sexes love differently...” Another take on expressing and recognizing love is explored in the 1992 book “The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate.” This book explains that the differences between how people express love are NOT divided along gender lines, but rather according to how people like to receive love—that there are 5 different “love languages,” and men AND women express love in the “love language” that they like to receive.See my question on this: Which of the 5 “Love Languages”—Acts of Service, Gifts, Physical Touch, Quality Time, or Words of Affirmation—is your preferred way of receiving love? ↗
Wonderful thoughts. If I may express some thoughts. Love is a very loaded word. It baffles some, angers others. Even kills. Drives people to do things they would never rationally do without that feeling present. The word love is used to express and gain. Unfortunately as it may be harmful as well as uplifting. Take in example. 3 things children who are most important and impressionable need to hear everyday. 1: I see you (im paying attention to you)2: im proud of you3 the most important (i love you)Children make a great example of how love is expressed, absorbed and abused. Without hearing i love you humans tend to have more mental problems and physical problems in the long run. Love can be expressed in many ways, a simple hug for 20 seconds can eliminate and elevate stress. The birth of a newborn is both violent and love. The first skin to skin contact for a newborn actually creates a bond with the newborn that relieves stress from the change of physical environment that has happened to the newborn. I recently dated a woman who told me her mother never told her she loved her. I find it hard to believe yet her actions do express that she has some deep seeded emotional problems. I called her like an hour and a half before I had decided to go eat at shucks. Texted her as well. I wanted to simlle treat her out, like I had been doing. Nearly an hour later she called me back. I was well into my meal, alone. No worries right? She asked where I was and I told her, eating crawfish etoufee at shucks. Her replies were way off the mark! Why didn't you call me. I said I did. Several times and texted you like 2 hours ago with no reply. (Well what are you bringing me?) I said, I'm having a drink after this and going home. Like 10 minutes later I get a text, bra and panties only with the captain... no shucks no fucks! Pressed the issue, that if I was any kind of man I wouldn't deny her food. Well im single now!

I'm glad I'm not alone, but I'm sorry you're going through this too. Wouldn't wish this on anyone. Your situation is basically what I meant when I asked this question. For me, I love my boyfriend but I'm scared go tell him that being LDR makes me feel like I'm missing out on things. Plus we already have a age gap and it sucks. I want to be able to be young but have a steady relationship where we're both working towards something. He'll probably never be able to provide for me. I'll be the one to do it if we even make it that far. I love him too much to let him go. I just wish things were different and his love was enough for me. But in the back of my mind I know it won't be at some point and I'll have to tell him.
Sometimes I just feel like the one who loves more is always in a loss. I loved this girl so much from heart but I don't know still she left. I dont see any reason for that. She just left me in pain.I did everything which makes her feel happy even she doesn't do it to me. I really don't know what girls really want. T-T
