Many people think that there is no difference between like and love but I certainly do believe that there is a difference. Like and love are two completely different things. When you like somebody your just getting to know that person and trying to figure out if there is something more between the two of you. Like is not as deep as love is, Like is just like making friends. You don’t know if the two of you are going to grow to be the best of friends or discover that you really don’t like that person as much as you thought you would. I don’t really think that you can lump together like and love because they are so different.
Its one thing to like a person but its quite another to love that person. Don’t get me wrong, I mean like is a wonderful thing but when you find love its a spectacular and beautiful thing that two people can share with one another. Love will make you do things that you never thought you would do and like will not. When you love somebody you love all of them even if some of the things they do drive you crazy. Finding love can be difficult and finding to like somebody comes a little bit easier because you know that if you don’t like those annoying little habits its easier to get rid of and discover that they are not the one for you.
Love is a different thing because love runs deeper than like. Love is more forgiving and more giving than like. You wouldn’t just give anything to somebody you liked, but you would for the person that you love because its more special and precious. Like is a precious thing, it just doesn’t get put into the same category as love because they are so opposite. Liking somebody is just liking somebody but loving somebody means making more sacrifice, being more giving and being a little bit more honest with somebody.
When you like somebody you don’t really see a point to being as honest than when you love somebody. Like doesn’t mean honesty it means friendship and for a lot of people it will always mean just friendship. Love is more than just a friendship and its more than just honesty. Its about giving, sharing and most of all its about commitment to that one person and nobody else. Love and like are different the only thing is love goes a lot deeper than like ever will.
So, which one are you in now? in Love or in Like?
