But loving someone lasts longer because it is a conscious decision that you make to stay with this person even after the initial rush has gone because you love them in totality for who they really are and you are willing to put in the time and effort to nurture them and see them grow.
4). Being in love is needy; loving someone is wanting absolute best for them
Being in love is falling in love with someone because of what you can get from them because they make you feel better about yourself or help you to overcome your loneliness. You fall out of love as soon as the other person does not give you what you want in the way you want.
Whereas loving someone is wanting the absolute best for them and wanting to see them happy wherever they are in their lives even if that includes being away from you.
“When you truly love someone, in a clean, unattached way, there is an overwhelming sense of wanting the absolute best for them. True love is wanting the absolute best for someone, even if what is best for them is to not be in a relationship with you,” – Jordan Gray.
5). Being is love is about ownership and loving someone is about a partnership
Being in love is about possessiveness or ownership. You basically view someone else as a way to fulfill your needs and you want to own them because your happiness is based on them. You will just fall in and out of love based on what you can get from a relationship. It is all about “I” and no “We”.
But loving someone is like working together as a team. You want to share your experiences and growth and move forward together. It is all about “We” and not just “I”.
