    Differentiating Love someone and being "In-Love"

    Is that an American thing?

    Do you immigrants use the term "in-love" in your native country?

    lol @ the emotional handicap of WI people
    you ALL AGREE with my opinion, which is why NONE of you ever EFFECTIVELY DISPUTE IT

    you ONLY have faith in the WOMEN'S ability to ELEVATE which is why you only FOCUS ON WOMEN...you ALL have long given up on Black men

    you just don't have the BALLS to OVERTLY AGREE....rather just do it INDIRECTLY

    weak men only can deal with weaker women

    in the presence of strength you diminish...

    it's not just a yanky thing the greek have many words for love..

    agape( true love/sacrificial) , philia(virtuous love/ friendship), eros (intimate/ sensual desire- lust), & storge (affectionate/family)...

    take a wild guess at which one is the one people use the most when they refer to "love" this day in age
    And keep your money, I got my own
    Keep a bigger smile on my face, being alone

    The only love I am talking about is the enlarged. The others do not fall into this discussion.

    It's a yankee thing! It's either yuh love somebody or yuh don't. That whole 'I love you but I'm not in-love with you' is Hollywood bullshit.

    Nah agape refers to love between friends.. Like If I tell you I love you as a friend as opposed to me telling my girlfriend that I love her. That has always been my understanding on agape.

    that's not true....you love your father, but are you in love with him? there is a difference in love...there are degrees and categories....

    that's like saying, you can't outgrow a relationship....or fall out of love with someone....love is an emotion and a state that is constant and ever changing like energy....and it shifts, transforms and increases and decreases

    have you ever been in love before?
