I think it's just a way for someone to beat around the bush because they have no idea if they love someone or not.<br />
In a relationship .. you're in love/you love someone .. it's all the same thing. You might not like someone all the time and still love them .. but loving and being in love .. same thing IMO.
I think the difference is being in love with the person... and just loving the idea of the person, having them around, etc.
Well put. Although I'm stuck cuddling my teddy bear lol
lol No I don't... at least not on purpose lol
"Love" for a person is more about care and concern as I would feel for friends and family. <br />
"In love" would be a deep romantic, passionate feeling I have for a partner. <br />
Sometimes that in-love feeling fades away to just love, for some partners that's good enough but it wouldn't be for me.
It means caring for the person vs having a sexual/romantic interest in them.
story of my pst 5 years...to me the diffrence easily said..inlove -you feel special just being around them and they make you happy sometimes butterflies and all....love-you would be hurt if something happend to them..stuff like that..
I f*cking hate that saying. what the hell does it mean. "I love him, but I'm not in love" The law states I'm allowed to hit somebody in the nose with a Barbie when that's said.
Yep sounds familiar, I still love my ex but not in love with him, passion is gone
The only prob is that we never really had much of it from the beginning ha, so what to hold onto but it's ok
The dreaded moment when you love someone and they respond that way to let you know in a "friendly" manner they don't love you in the same way.
I love many people but I am in love wth ony one..There are many levels of love such as love for your family ond love for your friends being in love with your parter is a love all in it's own
Just as you can fall in love with a person you can fall out the thing is I was married for 21 years and at one time I was in love with him...He abused that love and even tho i'm no longer in love with him I can't just stop loving him somewhere in my heart
i think it is so true, there are time's i a deeply in love with my husband of 26 years and then there are day where i love him<br />
when feeling IN LOVE there is a much more intence connected feeling
In love indicates a desire for sex in the relationship. The statement is usually made to attempt to communicate a candidate for sex is loved but not desired sexually. It is rarely believed by the recipient of the message who tends to have insight as to why the sex intends to be avoided and just agrees to the sentiment.
It's only a good relationship with a mix, that's for sure.
