You give up on love by expecting it to be handed it to you and expecting to be easy and expecting it to be pain-free. You give up on love by not trying, not opening your heart again after heartbreak and not trusting anyone you see because of your history.

You give up on love the day you stop listening your heart and who it beats for.
