Difference between "like" and "love"
From reading throught the "relationship thread" I started to wonder what love and like really is.
Well, "like" I can explain. But what is "love"? It's not something you can touch, see, or smell.. so it's hard to describe it. Even harder to know what it *actually* is.
"When you like someone, you like him/her because he/she makes you happy. It's basically self-indulgence.
But when you truly love someone, you are willing to sacrifice everything for that person.
You no longer care whether you're happy or not, as long as that person is happy."
This is how my friend explained it.
I personally don't really know what "love" is.
Although from time to time I might have thought I had it all figured out, now I'm a bit lost.
What do you think?
Share your thoughts/ideas. Compare the terms, discuss.
But try to keep it a bit serious. I didn't make this thread as a joke.
