• I love you on my terms.
  • I love you because of what you do for me.
  • I love you because you’re famous.
  • I love your success! If your success makes me a success, then I love you even more.
  • So long as you serve me, I love you.
  • I have loved you, look at all I have done for you, you owe me.
  • I love you because you do everything I want you to do.

If love is not given freely, but has conditions or expectations on it, it is not love at all. The relationship is nothing more than a business transaction where love is a merely a tradable commodity.

Love should be given freely, with no strings attached, unquestioningly and unconditionally; expecting nothing in return.
