motif: You don’t love me as much as I love you, you don’t love me as much as I love you, you don’t love me as much as I love you… From David Levithan’s novel, The Lover’s Dictionary.

When I read that part in David Levithan’s book, I realized it might actually apply to my life.  Maybe I did love G. more than he loved me.  I definitely needed him more than he needed me.  Last night, at the Dan Savage show, we were invited to write down questions for Dan to answer.  I coudln’t think of anything to ask him until midway through the night, I had one: What if you’re with someone who you love, but feel that they don’t love you as much?  What do you do?  I’m trying to be objective about it as I can, but I don’t think there’s a right answer to that question.  I think no matter what you do, you’re going to get hurt.  That being said, of course, this theoretical couple could work things out and be happy, so it wouldn’t be all bad.

I think I might send this question to Dan and see what he thinks.  Anybody have any thoughts?
