It’s very common to believe that they are both the same, the passion may feel the same, but what is different is the intentions. So if you are searching for that warm, bubbly feeling, you need to recognize the difference between the two


With that said, below are the top 8 examples that illustrate the difference between loving someone and being in love with them.
