Ask @mellokeme:

To love or be loved, having to choose one. Which would mean more ?

Loving means more—although I emphasise the balance of importance in both—because to love someone is an indescribable feeling of joy and contentment, albeit my self-conceptualised theories and works about hedonistic happiness.
Loving means more because it's harder to find someone whom one could love wholeheartedly without feeling an urge of infidelity, and perhaps partially because I have personally given up on being loved.
This assumes that the love referred in this question is about romantic love.
Family love is the same concept, except that it's unspoken unconditional love that warms the heart and brings tears to the eyes just by feeling love and putting in the extra effort to love.
