    lol, I have a hard time believing you don't know the difference, Mr. icon_wink.gif

    But OK I'll play.

    Bill and I love each other, and we are also IN love with each other. The two ingredients I think necessary for a relationship of lovers and life partners.

    In love, that heady wonderful feeling you have with a lover.

    Love, that feeling you have for another human being, like family and friends.

    How's that?

    I feel like to be "IN LOVE" is that temporary moment when all you think about is the other person, when you see him you have butterflies in your stomach and you just can't get him outta your head.
    And for me, it's also what come BEFORE "loving" someone. When you actually "love", it's more of a mature feeling and much more intense.

    Love is not just a feeling. It is an action. It is the act of being patient and kind; as humans we are not patient or kind. It consciously takes time and practice.

    Being 'in love' is like compassion in that it is a connection between two people that have practiced the action of love. It may only truly happen for a split second, and maybe only once in a lifetime.

    I'm still practicing.

    There is a difference, you will only be able to tell if you have experienced both.

    "I love you" means I'll suck your cock. "I'm in love with you" means I'll suck your cock.


    "I love you" means let's keep this between just the two of us. "I'm in love with you" means I don't care who knows.

    To serve and be served...two folds of same cloth...keep reading young padiwan......icon_wink.gif

    P.S. "I love you but I'm not IN love with you" is perhaps the most widely used excuse for the dumping of millions of lapsed love interests in the last quarter of the 20th century.

    This expression was most commonly preceeded by "We need to talk."

    Would you ever be "in love" with your family?

    Edit:
    Actually..... I don't want to know the answer to that.

    They are the same thing! Both need to have some kind of personal benefit in it for you to feel that is "love."

    I thought I had the answer, then I read this ^

    Well said!!!

    I will grace with my first thought though. "in love" means you want them for your purpose and satisfaction. "love" means you want them for their purpose and happiness, even when it means letting them make some decisions that you don't agree with.

    I think I'm loved and I am in love with those who love me.
