So a friend of mine, Ness, posed this question on her snapchat, and it reopened an argument that my boyfriend and I had when we first got together. I remember asking him, “Do you think there’s a difference between “I love you” and “I am in love with you?” Imagine my surprise when he said that he doesn’t see a difference between the two statements. This, of course, led us to having an hour long discussion/ argument, both trying to prove to the other that our points were more valid…. to no avail. Accepting that neither of us would waver with our opinions, we laid the argument to rest.
That brings us to now! I asked Jay again to see if his opinion somehow evolved (sarcasm) but nope! Same argument, further elaboration. So I now open it up to you all. Your opinions and insight are highly valued and welcomed. I really want to hear varying perspectives on this topic.. Let’s discuss!
What is the difference between I love you and I am in love with you?
