How to Cope with Unrequited Love – On Either Side of Rejection

With Valentine’s Day in the air, unrequited love can be especially painful this time of year.

So here’s some help from Dr. Lindsey Doe of Sexplanations. Whether you’re the one loving or the one being loved, you’re not the only one who’s had to deal with this tough situation – unrequited love is nearly universal.

If you love someone who doesn’t reciprocate your feelings, these reflections can help you understand what’s going on and take care of your broken heart. And if you don’t feel the same way as someone who loves you, Dr. Doe also has tips for how to figure out what to do about it.

We love Dr. Doe’s vision of how we can be healthy examples of rejection, and create for our communities “permission to be loved without owing anything in return.” This video can give you some healthy strategies to make that vision a reality in your life.
