I used to think that Teddy Geiger song was the most romantic thing in the world. As a princess, what could be better than someone who would do anything? And just like that, if you guys have read/watched The Princess Bride, you'll recall the part about Westley insisting that with every "As you wish" he uttered to Buttercup was embedded an "I love you."
So apparently love is about sacrifice. Self sacrifice. But I can't expect a guy to lay it all down for me when I won't reciprocate. Just as important as it is to love yourself before you can ask for love, you must first be willing to give yourself up in hopes one day, someone will put it all on the line for you.
