Hope.

That does not mean you should waste a lifetime waiting on someone. Part of loving someone is accepting them for who they are.

Love is an act that we perform.  It does not require reciprocation.

Romantic love is a unique type of love, with its own set of requirements for such an act of loving to be rewarding.

One of those requirements is usually reciprocation---and we hope for reciprocation much longer than is probably reasonable.
