Yeah, I like using cheerfulness in reply to someone who's trying to incite you to be all worked up and worried. Find whatever grain of truth is there, agree with it, and ignore the rest.

Do you think you love him?

THis may be a different thing, but when I experience this sort of not-getting-love pain, I interpret it as wanting love/approval from some source where it's just not available. I never thought to believe I have an excess of love for that source. It's just such a needful feeling to me. Surely love is something else? But I'm not that good at identifying loving feelings in myself.
