'as long as' can meat: 'if only', 'if', 'intill' but we can understand it also literally with 'long' as an adverb, don't we?
I think it also can suit: as long as=as for a long period as?

many thanks

Hi, Mr Micawber,
I just wanted to say that for me it would be also correct:
I bet you don't love me as long as I love you.= for example: I love you for a longer time than you love me.?, excluding that real love includes the same time for both persons -how it should be and it is.

what do you think?
thank you
Saneta

I bet you haven't loved me as long as I've loved you. --Yes, this is fine, Saneta.
