When I'm at my best, I like to think I am infusing love into all of my relationships -- those that are platonic and those that are a little more.

This means providing the people in your life with the same space and attention that you would give to a significant other.

As author bell hooks said in her book All About Love, society isn't set up to create connections. Viewing romantic love as the only kind of love out there is isolating and limiting. You can practice love and not have it be just about desire and passion.

While I think hooks probably has it all figured out, I'm nowhere near her level of wisdom. Even though I believe that love has a place practically everywhere, and that society would be a lot better off if we gave and received love more readily, I still fall head over heels into the infatuated, passionate, all-consuming kind.

No matter how much care and attention I give the people I am seeing, no matter how genuinely fond of them I may be, I feel differently about people when I love but am not in love with them. Here are some of my perceptions:

1. What You See Is What You Get

When you love somebody but aren't in love with them, it's easy to spend extended periods of time together, just the two of you. Heck, I've even invited a girl I had started seeing to come on vacation with me because I was fond of her and knew we'd have fun.

Unlike when I am deeply, passionately, infatuated-ly in love with someone, I didn't intend this gesture to stand for anything more than an invitation. I wasn't seeing it as a first step toward commitment or anything more than a week at the beach.

When I'm in love, every offer is made with a deep intention behind it. I even put playlists together with a hidden love code. That gift I gave you? Yeah, I made up a little movie imagining your reaction before handing it over.

I can't help it; I love the fantasy. Maybe that's an intense way to live, but what can I say? It's how I roll right now.

2. You're Afraid Of Disappointing Them

I consider care to be a form of love. I think that you can be kind, thoughtful, and considerate in your actions and have that be an expression of love, whether or not you are actually in love with someone.

The downside to that, though, is that often, when I show my appreciation and care for someone I am casually seeing, I worry that they'll think it's more than that.

Even though I'm not deeply in love with the person, hurting them would definitely still hurt me. That's what happens when you care about somebody.

In some ways, I guess treating a casual fling lovingly can come with as many potential land mines as being deeply in love. It's just you don't hear about it as much.

3. You're Still Guilty That You Don't Feel More

Have you ever experienced your head telling you that you ought to be super into somebody? If somebody is great, kind, considerate, and funny, and I don't feel the fireworks, then it's like a tiny, internal judge starts banging his gavel away somewhere in my head, pointing his finger at me.

"What's wrong with you?" he wants to know. "Have you forgotten how to feel?"

He reminds me of that time that I was head over heels for a punk who put on a podcast in the middle of having sex with me and was preparing to move into his van. How could I fall for that and not this?

Wait, no, I remind myself. There was nothing wrong with that guy. The podcast happened to be really great.

The reality is that nobody is obligated to your feelings at all, and you can feel as much or as little as you feel. It's easy to judge and police your own emotions, though, especially when society has taught you that you ought to be seeking a committed, deeply passionate relationship at all times.

That isn't how it really goes, though.

4. You Don't Plan For The Future

The nice thing about being in a loving arrangement with someone without being infatuated? It's easier to enjoy the time you're spending together, rather than thinking about what might happen next.

In my experience, there's often anxiety around deep, deep passion. When you're that deeply in love with somebody, then you feel like you have something to lose.

It's like love is the statue David. When I'm in love, I'm constantly worrying about an earthquake making him fall and shatter into a million pieces. When I love someone without being in love, then I can just sit back, sip a spritzer, relax, and look at Italy.

5. You Want Them To Meet Someone Great

To me, loving somebody without being in love with them means that you don't care whom they end up with, as long as their future partner treats them well. In a way, this is much more liberating than the kind of passionate romance where you want to be the person's one and only.

Some of the deepest loves in my life have been for my friends. While I know that we'll probably stay in close touch for the rest of our lives, I definitely don't expect that I'll be their primary relationship.

Sure, if we are very close, I imagine I'll probably rank them as one of the greats and vice versa. I know that nothing will replace what we have. But that doesn't mean that I would fill the same role as a love interest. It's not that I'm more or less, or that the love we have for each other is any less worthy than the kind that comes with sex. It's just different.

When you're in love with someone, though, the stakes get raised a little higher. While you might be happy for them if they meet somebody else down the road, it will definitely come with more than a tinge of pain. Unless you've moved out of being in love and just into the plain, old love zone, it might be impossible to stay friends with them, too -- self preservation and all of that.

You know, reading this list over makes me think it's better to love than be in love completely. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

What It's Like To Love Someone But Not Be In Love

i love you but u dont

Is it really that you want to stop caring about them, or is it that you want to start caring about yourself? I think it's possible to love someone without exposing yourself to the feelings of inadequacy, jealousy, or just "not enough-ness" that you feel whenever you try to interact with them and find their response (or lack of response) uncaring. Sometimes this does involve not interacting with them as much, or not looking at social media or things that remind you of them, but it is not so easy to control your thoughts. So don't punish yourself whenever you find them entering your thoughts; you don't have to entertain the feelings of inadequacy, jealousy, sadness, depression that they bring up, at least not permanently. You do not have to intentionally dwell on them or check up on their Facebook to see what they're doing, if you realize these activities send you into a spiraling depression of doom each time you engage in them. Pay attention to how you feel when you take certain actions. You can realize that certain feelings are indeed there, even if you aren't intentionally dwelling on them, and also know that you had a life before this person, and so you can have a life after them too. You still have traits and interests that are uniquely yours. Engage in them, and talk to the people who do make you feel cared for, or just spend time with yourself. Self-compassion is one of the most helpful responses and best things you can do for yourself. Examples of self-compassion include: sleeping when you need to sleep, letting yourself have outlets for your distress, phrasing your self-talk in a gentler manner, staying away from people or situations that make you feel down on yourself (if possible to avoid them). If eventually this person falls out of your life and you don't care in the same way that you once did, that's OK. It can happen and it does happen. But don't make this your aim for right now. Perhaps it simply feels too destructive or too unkind to your nature to make yourself stop caring. Make it your aim to care about you; direct that loving energy toward yourself if the other person will not receive it. The rest will fall into place as it is meant to.

Luv u too meaning

i love you but u dont

I love you” means that I accept you for the person that you are, and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you even when you’re in a bad mood, or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you’re down, not just when you’re fun to be with. “I love you” means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them, asking in return that you do not judge me for mine. It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love you enough not to let go. It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting and needing you constantly, and hoping you feel the same way for me.

person 1 - I love you
person 2 - I love you to.

Get a I love you mug for your cat Yasemin.

three dangerous words abused by pop culture, teenagers and American society as a whole. often used by males to get into a woman's pants BUT-

when a guy says these words to a girl (and truly does mean it) he is basically giving her permission to walk all over him... but he doesn't care. when he means it, every second he spends with her, every time he hears her voice, every kiss, every laugh, every joke, every argument- is the best moment of his life.
a girl will question his reciprocation constantly for fear of being fooled. but if she truly loves him, she will believe anything and everything he tells her.
when you really mean it, you'll never get tired of saying or hearing these words.

when your in love, you'd rather hear the other person's voice than sleep. you care more about them than you care about yourself. you'll never let the other say they love you more. you always want to be around them and feel happy when your around them. no matter how long you are with them, its never enough- you always want to be around the person. their happiness becomes your priority and you would do anything and everything just to see them smile.

you could go on and on trying to define your feelings for that person but you'll never find words to accurately explain.

if you find love, you'll know. don't be fooled by lust. when love comes around, the hours fly by when you talk to that person.

teenagers- i know you all think your in love but PLEASE do not say it unless you are 104% positive its for real. too many people use these 3 words too lightly and they are beginning to lose their meaning.

if you find someone worth saying these words to, you are very lucky.

i love you are 3 wordsyou'll never understand until you experience their meaning for yourself.

Get a i love you mug for your mom Sarah.

A saying. An over used statement in which society today takes for granted. The usage of the phrase varies deeply. It can range from a simple "Hey baby, I love you, now lets hook up." to a feeling with when truly inlove, is literally indescribable. Phycology dictates it as a simple chemical reaction triggered within the confines of your brain, but it is much, much more. It can be in the very epicenter of your soul or it can be your ultimate downfall. Love can either destroy you, or be the very reason of your existence. Love is what love does. Love is giving someone with the power to obliterate you, but having complete faith and trust in them not to. Love is life.

Guy who truly loves a girl: "I love you and I want to be with you forever."

Girl who truly loves the guy above: "I love you too, and you're my everything."

95 I Miss You Quotes For Him and Her

i love you but u dont

If you’ve ever seen a romantic comedy, you’ve likely watched two people who find a way to be together — no matter what obstacles stand in their way. The reason is always simple: They’re in love. But off screen, love isn’t always enough to make a relationship last.

In fact, the feelings caused by romantic love can be so strong, they can convince people to stay in relationships that are unhealthy, unfulfilling and ultimately unhappy — whether they realize it or not. For example, when people looked at photos of their romantic partners, dopamine — a chemical associated with reward that makes people feel good — was released in their brains, a 2015 study published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience found.

The way these chemicals make people feel can make them overlook logical decisions like leaving an unsatisfying relationship, says Julie Wadley, founder and CEO of matchmaking and coaching service Eli Simone. “When people are in love, they’re driven off of the drug, the endorphins,” she says. “The chemicals that tell you you’re in love with this person are firing.”

While being in love undoubtedly feels good (and is good for your health,) these feelings alone don’t spur solid, lasting romantic relationships. Here, experts explain some of the signs that indicate it may be time to let go:

Your needs aren’t being met

Every person has different “requirements” that need to be met in a relationship, according to Wadley. These needs can be emotional, like wanting quality time with your partner, or functional, like requiring them to competently manage money.

When one partner feels that the other isn’t fulfilling a requirement, Wadley says, it’s important to communicate that. If that person’s partner isn’t willing to try harder to fulfill that need, it’s probably time to move on, she says.

One of the reasons people stay in relationships that don’t meet their needs stems from the negative views our society has about being single, according to Wadley. It may seem like if they leave the relationship, they may never find something better. But Wadley says that mentality wastes valuable time and perpetuates a person’s unhappiness. “You could be taking that time to find someone who will give you what you need,” she says.

You’re seeking those needs from others

When you get promoted at work or you’re faced with a family emergency, who is the first person you want to tell? In a fulfilling, healthy relationship, the answer to those questions should be your partner, according to Wadley.

It’s great to have trusted colleagues at work, but Wadley says if you’re constantly turning to a “work husband” or “work wife” for support, it may be a sign that you’re not getting the support you need from your partner. “If you’re like, ‘I have a choice between talking to my boyfriend and talking to my guy friend, the guy who is constantly giving you that emotional affirmation that I need — I’m going with the friend,’” Wadley says, “Something’s not right.”

If either you or your partner is seeking emotional or physical fulfillment from people outside of your relationship, Wadley says it’s a clear indication that it’s probably time to end the relationship.

You’re scared to ask for more from your partner

It’s natural to feel uncomfortable talking to your partner about what you need and may not be getting from your relationship. But Wadley says open lines of communication are essential to lasting, healthy partnerships.

“People may think, ‘That’s going to make me sound needy and emotional,’” says Wadley. Instead of speaking up, they suppress how they feel, continue on with their dissatisfaction and feign contentment out of fear of feeling like a burden.

“Then something happens that breaks the camel’s back,” she says. And the argument that ensues can wind up being more damaging to the relationship than it would have been if you had addressed it sooner. Hiding your true feelings about how your partner is treating you likely prolongs the unfulfilling relationship, rather than saves it, according to Wadley. If you can’t get past the fear of confronting your partner, it’s probably time to seek help or part ways, she says.

Your friends and family don’t support your relationship

Lindsay Chrisler, a New York-based dating and relationships coach says you should take stock of how your trusted family members and friends feel about your relationship. “If nobody in the community supports your relationship, that’s a red flag,” she says. If the people who love and support you see that the person you’re in love with isn’t making you happy, it’s a good idea to listen to their opinions, according to Chrisler.

If you decide push aside your friends’ and family’s concerns, it may lead to another sign that it’s time to let go of the relationship: “You’re starting to lie to your friends, you’re starting to lie to yourself,” says Chrisler. When you isolate yourself from your loved ones in order to avoid listening to their concerns, they’re probably right — the relationship probably isn’t, she says.

You feel obligated to stay with your partner

People are more likely to stay in relationships that they’ve already invested time and effort in, a 2016 study published in Current Psychology found. This is similar to a money investment phenomenon known as the “sunk cost effect.” A prior investment leads to a continuous investment, even when the decision doesn’t make you happy.

“When it comes to people and relationships, time does not necessarily equal success,” says Wadley, who added that many of her clients are reluctant to leave an unhappy relationship because they want to reap the rewards of their investment.

But simply investing more time in a relationship with someone you love won’t fix the problems. If both partners aren’t willing to work to fulfill the other’s needs, the relationship probably isn’t worth more time.

You’ve been working on your relationship for more than a year

Of course, when two people are in love and have spent years together or have started a family together, there is a stronger incentive to work out the problems, says Chrisler. Her advice is to seek couples’ counseling if both partners want the relationship to work. But she caveats that you should set a time limit of one year.

“If you spend too much time in indecision, it will erode the foundation of the relationship to the point where you can’t really make it back,” she says.

After about a year of actively working on the relationship and unsuccessfully trying to meet each other’s needs, the difficult decision to break up is likely the best decision, according to Chrisler.

You don’t like your partner

While it may sound counterintuitive, Chrisler says you can actually be in love with a person you don’t like. If that’s the case, you may get by day to day, but it will be nearly impossible to make it through difficult times together.

All couples have disagreements, but people in healthy, loving relationships keep the mindset that “this is my friend, and I’m going to get through this with this person,” Chrisler says. “And I don’t know how you get through those things without liking them.”

Still, it’s never easy to walk away from someone you love — even when the relationship isn’t working, according to Chrisler. The key, she says, is to listen to the logical part of your brain, instead of submitting to the euphoric chemical reactions that love can cause.

Your partner is abusive

It’s possible for people in an abusive relationship to love an abusive partner. One in four women and one in 10 men have been victims of intimate partner violence, according to a 2015 survey conducted by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. A 2010 study conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health found that more than half of the women surveyed saw their abusive partners as “highly dependable.” One in five of the women surveyed said the men possessed significant positive traits, like “being affectionate.” Researchers found that these views contributed to some victims staying in abusive relationships, among other reasons — like isolation, extortion and physical violence.

When it comes to abuse of any kind, Chrisler says it’s crucial to safely find a way out. “It’s difficult to get out of those relationships,” she says. “You have to really love yourself.”
