Open discussion post:
What does it mean to you to be “in love” with someone?
Do you use that term, and if so, what's the differentiation between loving someone and being in love with someone. For the sake of discussion, let's presume romantic interest / attraction – so we're not just comparing “I love my friends” to “I'm in love with my spouse”, per se.
No right or wrong answers, just had a chat on the topic so I figured I'd open a discussion post to get others' thoughts. I'll chime in with my own thoughts later.
