What is the difference between loving someone and being in love? We often times loosely use the word “love” and mix up loving someone and being in love with someone. This article may help you understand how you feel apart your partner, and allow you to have a better understanding of the difference between loving, and being in love.
Being in love with someone is very different from loving someone. While both are strong feelings, being in love with someone can step from infatuation and from an obsession of sorts. You feel incomplete when you are not with your partner, and you constantly crave them.
On the other hand, loving someone goes beyond presence. You want to see them grow and you see past any flaws they might have. Go motivate each other to be better people.
Loving someone requires commitment from both sides of the relationship. You need to give what you want to get to have a healthy relationship. It is impossible to receive the love you do not give because loving someone means giving without condition. You need to understand your partner to love him / her, and vise versa.
Overall, it is important to love someone not for what you can get, but for what you can give to your partner. Ensure that you love your partner completely – for the better and for the worse, embrace each others flaws and work together to allow your relationship to grow and prosper into something bigger than it already is.
