I think the person undergoing unrequited love is in more a comfortable position, than the person on the receiving end. Think about it.
It's all about the intense emotions, and the feeling that their world will never understand your love. What happens when all of that deconstructs? When you do get what you want, and realize that one thing you always wanted isn't exactly what you thought it would be?
So there is no question of putting you on a pedestal, really. Or my situation.
You know what your problem is though? You're looking for a muse for a companion.
Aside- Somebody go tell him they are separate phenomena and cannot be moulded into one?
I am not asking you to think the way I do. But I am sure, the day you see what you searching for doesn't exist in reality, you will realize what I am around for.
Stop looking for a miracle to hit you. And start giving reality a chance.
