Is it better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all?

I think the question is self-explanatory, and am curious what your own answer is on this age-old dilemma! Personal anecdotes are purely optional.

    Jan 7 2014: There is nothing more important than to love. Loosing a love can teach us how to love next time.

    What we could also learn, or except, is that the love we lost was maybe not meant to be. There is a better one waiting.

    All in all, to not have loved at all, what kind of a person is that..??
