Well, in my expereience, there are two kinds. There is the love for your family, friends and relatives. It's an intense caring for an individual. Most of the time, the people that you love comes before anyone else. And when you lose that love through death, it can take a toll on you, especially if it's a parent. If it's one of your children, you may never be the same. Then there is being in love. That has many of the same characteristics as the love I just mentioned, except that is between two lovers and includes a physical relationship. When you are in love, Just thinking of that person, especially when the relationship is new can bring a smile to your face. When you are in love, you want to be with that person all the time. The thing that goes with that is when your girlfriend or boyfriend or spouse does something that hurts you, especially cutting you down, it hurts more than if someone from your family says the same thing.
I really believe a person cannot live without love. It's been proven that just touching a child when he is young stimulates brain cells and even grows new one. Love is eesntial to ones self esteem. If no one loves you, how can you love or even like yourself?
I personally like this explanation of love:
"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.
Love is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."
- Captain Corelli's Mandolin
Love is when another person's wishes, desires, needs, wants and life become more important to you than your own.
to me i feel love is a burning fire within you. it makes you want to give all without expecting any thing in return. when the love is not returned however it gradually kills the fire and what is left is a cold dust.
Its mainly an invisible bonding of minds between two or a group of people which demands support,understanding,commitment,honesty,purity and unselfishness.Love can also be expressed in material forms like love for pets,nature..etc.

What is the difference between "I Love You" and "I am in Love with You?"Do they mean different things to you? Do you use them in different ways?

Is being in love and love the same thing? If not what is the difference?I was once told being in love and loving someone is different. Being in love carries a deeper depth.

Why try so hard to be in love, when you are already? a lot of people analyze it way too much,and it creates fictional problems for them,that they need to fix but can't because there not real.

Does being in love allow one freedom or is it a form of entrapment?I see people who seem to be in love but also seem to be trapped or stuck. What are your feelings? Look forward to hearing from you.

Is it possible for a person, in my case I'm talking about a guy I know- to be incapable of falling in love and why.Do you feel it's to be looked down upon if a person cannot show love to another in a relationship or pretends to be in love and what would the signs of that be?Thankyou
