I Love You and In-Love, What's The Difference?

There are two questions which swim around in my conscience today:

1. What is the difference between love and in-love?

2. Why don’t men get this?


My girlfriend and I had a long discussion about these two topics when we first got together. I have an audio post of gift giving that explains how much my past relationship taught me.

I was trying to explain to my girlfriend that there is a difference between having love for someone and being in-love with them. She was astounded that I knew the difference. And though I hate to down-play the romantic intelligence of men, it’s true. Most men don’t know, and frankly, don’t care about the difference. Yet, it’s this difference that can cause a long lasting relationship or heartbreak.

Women are often told by men that they are rushing into a relationship because he is finding love for her while she is falling in-love with him. This is a subject that could use some feedback. Let me know what your answer to those two questions are. Maybe we all can learn something new.

In my experience, there is no difference. A man is a dog and he'll lie and say anything to get in those coochi lips. Sorry its so blunt but its true.

That was so damn negative. Now, what if a guy said that in his experience, a woman is a bitch and wants to take a man for all his money. You would be insulted. Not all men are "dogs" and not all men set out to hurt women for selfish reasons. You really need to let down that wall. It seems like someone has hurt you in the past and you are sticking with the hurt instead of letting it go.

Check this out, Demitri, while you are staying bitter and not getting any sleep at night, the guy (or guys) who hurt are sleeping soundly. Don't make a future and potential men pay for the old guy's mistakes.

Try and be more positive about the male race. Keep in mind that we need each other to procreate, to love and to build. You'll find that guy that fits your style and personality. Just believe it.

Remember: You've got to see it before you see it or you never will see it.

Love, peace and empathy.
