Either the top statement needs to be
If you don’t love yourself, how can anyone else love you?
or else the bottom one
If you love no one, how can you love yourself?
This would be logically framed as two different Catch-22, since both hypothesize that you need one type of love to get another, and the other to get the first.
It might be easily attacked on the grounds the one or the other requirement is false, but not on grounds of illogicity.
