Want to really get my attention? Let me how you did something nice for someone else. Or something nice for the environment. Or something nice for the disavantaged. Let me know how much you care about your family...or how you volunteered..saved someone's life..walked someone across the street that was nervous to do so. Compliments only briefly get my attention, generousity catches my heart. This is not a request to hear your sob story or how you did 1 nice thing for someone else and you didn't end up getting the girl's attention, this is a request to listen to honest intentions of being a caring person, someone who brings more to life than what they take. I think this is my view on love, the capacity to care about someone more than you care about yourself, regardless how how that person treats you back, the willingness to do something for someone else with no intent to receive something back for it.
