Yes, I get what you're saying. I just define it a little differently.
Comparing love to treasure implies that it is fragile and easily breakable.
Instead, I like to compare my love to meat. Delicious, tough, consistent (most of the time), and essential to my daily diet (vegans/vegetarians, just give me this). I value it very much.

Wow . . . people on AF are so calculated.
But I guess I already knew that.
Anyway . . .
1. I don't think it is.
2. No, I don't believe so.
3. Well, I'm not sure about others, but I do.
4. You weren't wrong.
5. No. Not after what you know, now.
6. No, not really.
7. I didn't do anything since it's never happened. >.<
Mmkay, answered all your questions.
Now for story time!
I'll start with the one my English teacher told our class.
He has a friend who started dating this girl in seventh grade.
After (sorry I forgot the number of years) years,
they are still together and the happiest that he has ever seen a couple.
They have 5 (I think) kids, and haven't had one break in their relationship.
And then my parents . . .
My dad asked my mom to marry him when she was 19 years old.
She was Christian, and he was Lutheran.
Even after my mother was cornered in the kitchen and yelled at by his family, she still married him.
My mom gave up smoking for my dad because he didn't like it,
and my dad stopped drinking and coming home super late after drinking.
No one thought they would last, but they did.
They're still together today, and go to each other when they have problems with work or something.
They've been married for 30 years, and I know that they haven't cheated on each other.
The End. ^_^

As it is already mentioned that there are more than 6.5 billion people in this world, I'm sure you would find a perfect woman compatible to you, whom you can trust, for whom you are willing to do anything, and who also shares the same feeling about you, if you search harder or if you just keep on living your life.
Just think of all the home-made cookies your loved one would happily make for you in the future. You HAVE to become more decent, more faithful, be willing to do anything to help your loved one, and ulitmately get out the dark side of the force for the sake of all those cookies.

NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY
Well thanks for that...rather intresting perspective!
Umm i do have to say that i agree with one thing that you said though...
"...for there's hardly such a thing as a one-sided love." and sometimes people really dont understand that at all...
Love is a really valuable treasure, if you only say "i love you" when you really mean it, and out of your true feelings for that special person.
it's a very nice feeling, dreaming hours and hours a day just about that person!
But too bad, most people are only interested in sexual activities, and they forget the main point why these things are in the world!
Hell, this world is so destroyed!
They're hours and hours spent on something wasteful. They could be spent getting an education and studying. Make those hours have a legitimate purpose. Finding love does not earn you money. Graduating college gets you plenty, though and everybody loves money.it's a very nice feeling, dreaming hours and hours a day just about that person!
We don't forget the main point. We ignore the main point and just indulge in the pleasure of sex without the high-maintenance relationship garbage. Why do you think there is such a thing as a friend with "benefits"?But too bad, most people are only interested in sexual activities, and they forget the main point why these things are in the world!
Destruction is a rather unorthodox means of creation. (That's speaking in terms of art, though.)Good lord! No! I said get CREATIVE, not DESTRUCTIVE. Though, I know that most people have an inexplicable urge to consider destruction as an integral part of creativity, it is wiser to adapt more restraint.
I don't know about that. You should see who makes those Entenmann's cookies.You HAVE to become more decent, more faithful, be willing to do anything to help your loved one, and ulitmately get out the dark side of the force for the sake of all those cookies.
...and you wonder why people get lured in. I joined 2 weeks ago. I got a Leia clone to have my way with in addition to a cookie.

There is such a thing as "friends with benefits" because people like to try new things, or just not be involved in all that "relationship garbage" which requires an actual commitment.Originally Posted by Dr. Hax
Also, when you say "we", you only speak for half of the men out there, not all. A lot of men actually know how to respect the person they are with, even in a friends-with-benefits scenario.

I like how you're implying that I don't respect the person I'm with. I may not see things in the same light as you or anyone else but I do know how to put forth respect. You can be as skeptical as you like on that statement. It doesn't mean I will acknowledge it nor does it mean I will accept or ignore your possible attacks toward me.A lot of men actually know how to respect the person they are with, even in a friends-with-benefits scenario.

Not that you can't be all those things a friends-with-benefits scenario, but that takes a special kind of person.
Wut?Originally Posted by Dr. Hax
I can't possibly be "implying" such about you personally or "the person you are with", because no where I read, did you say anything about the "person you were with." There is no way to imply something about someone you did not even know existed. Sorry.
Also, I was speaking in general to different parts of your post, not about you directly. I don't see where I "attacked" you.
You do!Originally Posted by Dr. Hax
But really. Love is great when you have it. Even better when you know how to keep it.

Eh I'm not saying it's gone. But It's definitely much harder to track down. Like most marriages now days end in failure, which I guess is practical. Because why stay in something if you're not happy? But still I digress. There's a whole new dimension of shallowness when it comes to dating and hooking up now. I remember when I was in grade school and stuff hooking up meant like meeting up with people! Then when I got to middle school it was like "Did you hook up with anyone this weekend?" and I was like Oh yeah tons of people. Now there's this whole casual stuff, then there's "facebook official" (which is ludicrous) but still whatever I mean. I guess I'm a hypocrite cause i've had just random hookups and also real relationships when I care but the shallowness of either me or the other party really gets the better of you. I dunno I think we should all just be celibate.........I mean not really but yknow. Hyperbole and whatnot.
All The Ways You Wish Could Be? That's me
Anyway, love is the most valuable thing to me. I've spent my entire life searching for "the one", and I can't wait till I find her and she is mine (ie we are in a committed and healthy relationship, and married would be great too). For me, sex comes after love; it just needs to be in place before I can be intimate like that with someone. It's not that way for everyone, and while I respect their beliefs I also feel sorrow (not sorry) for them. But some people just don't understand any of that, and while that's their prerogative you shouldn't let it get you down. Follow your own morals.
Back, by popular demand! Now with new avy.
You have no idea how WONDERFUL you sound...I kno the girl you get will be truly blessed! Your LOVE lvl is off the charts and not only that your willing to wait for love first...love...hmm!
I think most people take love for granted because they look around and see that no one else treasures it anymore...if not everyone then majority of people! Love...some people never experinced that love that seems to stop time in its tracks, that love that causes everything to be seen in the light of happiness, and fairness! Love...that beautiful creature that tends to bless only a few with the special sight to even know love when we see it...
Love is different with everyone; some live for it while others can barely grasp the concept. I know that the "real" love can exsist, but it depends on other character traits a person has whether or not it lasts.
I tell you this though, it can be a big ugly game. They say in a relationship one always loves more than the other, and if you're the one who loves more...be prepared to have your heart ripped out.
A MaruDashi Creation
Hmm...just a thought!
Is loved treasured anymore?
Love has never been a valued treasure by the general population, we just go by what society accepts.
I'm not saying people don't seek it, but with arranged marriages and loveless marriages, you can't treasure something you've never had.
And I don't see how its any harder to find someone that you love now than it was before, considering our population is exponentially rising and has been since... the 1500's? More variation for ya, dearie.

On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
Probably via hax.
Regardless! You won!
So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.
And the grand prize was not dying!
I'm gonna have to agree with many of the responses above mine. I can't really say love has ever been a valued treasure, or even a treasure at all. Sadly as M Mori said, people who never had love can't value it regardless of other's feelings.

To respond to your possibly rhetorical question, if I wish to be respected, yeah, I will respect on the first hand. I expect disrespect from people because I am skeptical of whether or not they mean what they say.
