    Does this sentence make sense to a native speaker?

    "I just asked for her love in return for all those that I did for her."

    I have just created this miracle sentence (miracle for me, because I don't think my English is good enough for me to make such long sentences.) on an instant messenger program when I was so furious and now I want it to be checked to see if it sounds OK to a native speaker . Thanks in advance.

    "I just asked for her love in return for all those that I did for her." >> [all those what?] "...for all that I did/had done..."

    Your English seems pretty fluent. Apart from the full stop in the brackets, you have written a good long sentence.
