On Love and Sufferring

What happens when "I love you" is about wanting the other person to love me? I can't control whether the other person loves me or not, so I suffer when she doesn't love me the way I want her to. The more I want her to love me, the more
I suffer.

Is it possible to love someone without needing them to love me back? Parents love their children this way - unconditinal love. What if I love my wife unconditionally? If she doesn't love me unconditionally, will she suffer?
