Question by J. Z: Whats the difference between being in love and loving someone?
I’ve been around the block a few times and it’s still hard to tell. I’m in this situation again, Love,lust,like just friends give me some opinions about all. How do you KNOW.

When you’re just friends, you have no feelings of attraction for that other person except maybe emotional attatchment, like you care for them a whole lot. If you’re in lust, you might think you’re in love, but you’re not. You just want to be physical with them.

When you “love” someone, you care for that person. They make you happy. They make you feel safe and belonged. They are your close friends, family, parents, a good close friend, etc.

When you’re “in love” it’s like having a best friend, but you also have feelings of lust (wanting to be close to them all the time) and love (your heart beats faster, you don’t want them to get hurt, etc)

You can just love anyone. You can love your mom, dad, siblings, friends, dog, etc.

but being IN love is when you love one person and want to be with them every minute of your life. (corny, but true)

If you’ll do ANYTHING for a girl (because you truly care) you love her. IF you couldn’t live without her, you love her. If you can stand thinking of losing her, then it may only be the in-love phase, which only lasts about 2 years btw…. takes a lot more work after that point. If you think about a LOT, you may only be in-love. You have to feel a TRUE, DEEP connection with someone to LOVE them… :)

I’m a girl. I know because all I want to do is be with him, not just kiss him. I like his hugs. I don’t care what anyone thinks about him. I basically picture what I’d do if he died. Right away, my heart sinks. I think about how I’d feel if we broke up and I had to see him everyday. Right away, I want to break down in tears.
Just loving someone is when you know that you wouldn’t want to deal with them in twenty years when their complaining and whining about something stupid.
To make sure that I was in love, I pointed out the flaws of my boyfriend and made sure that I still wanted to be with him.
