For me it works the other way better... the more love I give the more I receive. I think it becomes a cycle then, a beautiful circle of love and happiness created by me. Of course receiving love then becomes my drive to give more... the trick is to realize that giving love sometimes means being confident, communicative of feelings and boundaries and standing firm in ones convictions... having integrity and good ethics. If one is too flakey about their love of others it isn't believable love.
Besides this it's important to take the time to show love by being concerned, empathetic and making an effort to let people know that you love them... this means being selfless sometimes so that we can receive.
It's all so very tricky, but oh so worth the effort.
