True love is being true to yourself, loving another person with out making false identity about yourself. This is becoming genuine and that by becoming one, you gain their trust in return. When they loved you back, you hit a jackpot. But love is not always reciprocated.
True love never asks for another person for reciprocity of their love. It is becoming happy just to love them. Much happier if they loved you back. If not, you just endeavor that thought that you cared for that person so much.
True love is also putting your loved ones first more than anything else. They become your priority and will do anything, and every thing for their happiness. Love is not selfish. It is more of giving yourself to others with out asking in return from them.
