My gf recently told me that she loves me and I said the same back. But Then she asked if I was "in love" or just "loved" her, and I was unsure of the difference. She says "in love" means you cant live without the person, and to "love" means simply that care for them a great deal. I believe that there are different types, but when it comes to loving your partner theres no differences, love just grows as the relationship does. I feel kinda stupid though cause I said I was "in love" with her, and she only "loves" me, and I wouldnt have this problem if she hadnt asked me which type of love I have for her. What do you guys think?
