    which would you prefer choose if you had to choose one?
    to be respected or loved?

    loved i think

    lately a couple of my friends say they don't respect me as much anymore but still love me. obviously not the best thing to hear in the world, but i know i could ask them to do pretty much anything for me and they'd still do it.

    if they only respected but didn't love me, don't think theres that sorta safety net there if i ever really needed something

    I agree.but lets say there's 2 people

    a)someone who respects you because of the current situation/circumstance
    but doesn't love you
    b)someone who loves you a lot but doesn't respect you.

    who would you choose? both or neither is not an acceptable answer.

    If you don't respect someone, I don't think you can call what you feel for them 'love' to be honest. At least not in a romantic sense.

    How can someone love you, without respecting you?

    I know I couldn't love someone I didn't respect in some way or the other.

    Love please...

    Money buys me plenty of respect.

    Money can never buy real love.
