  • I love God, my son, my mother, my brothers, my whole family, my boyfriend. I'm "in love with" my boyfriend. Loves is non-romantic, "in love with" is romantic.

  • "in love" is something you feel...."love" is something you do. There are times I am "in love" with my children and times when I can only "love" my husband.

  • The difference is you LOVE your children, but in LOVE with your husband

  • being "in love" is associated with the person you're romantically interested in.
    you "love" the other people in your life.

    I love my baby, my parents, my siblings my friends.
    but I am IN LOVE with my husband, and my husband only.

  • Love is an emotion that we can share with may people for many different reasons; it's a real and natural emotion. Being 'in love' is a label that is given when you unconditionally love the person who is your other half. This person makes you feel complete, whole and you love in a romantic sense.

  • I love many people. i am in love with DH because I am committed to him. Being in love is a commitment not a feeling.
