my definition of "feeling in love" includes a feeling of a thrill in seeing the other person. i like doing tasks like tending chickens, chores, painting, going for walks in the woods, going shopping, etc with the people i feel i am in love with. i feel "in love" with lots of people.

my list of people i am "attracted" (sexually or not sexually) to usually overlaps but is larger then the list of people i am "in love with". i feel "love" for most people.

my feelings of being "in love" lasts over time, as i recall it rarely significantly diminishes over time and. i have noticed that as opposed to the definition here: Limerence that i from the beginning see the person as a whole, flawed being and have not the "a remarkable ability to emphasize what is truly admirable in the limerent object and to avoid dwelling on the negative or render it into another positive attribute."

i sometimes wonder / fear if i have Unrequited Love.

I feel genuinely the same way
I feel "in love" with people, even if it isn't a sexual thing. It is extremely rare for me to stopping loving the people in my life; even if they have hurt me and things had to change for our relationship (whatever that was - friend, family, lover).

I don't think it is the same as unrequited love, but it is something that I find is unusual in most people. For many, once the link is severed or the pain feels to much they stop loving. It is actually harder to continue loving a person in spite of the pain than it is to just go on loving that person despite it all.
