Are you really in love or is your mind playing tricks on you? Some people think love is just a figment of one's imagination. How do we know the difference between love and like?
Sophomore Scott Knight said, “ There is a small difference between love and like. Only to the people involved, it has different meanings.” For example, Scott said he loves his [football] teammates and he would take a bullet for them.
When I asked Scott what love means to him he responded, “It's the point in between of loving someone and just being friends. Like is when you're trying to find out if you love them or not.”
I think love is an expression or feeling when the certain someone walks into your life and turns your life around. The one who makes you happy when you're sad or mad. The one who doesn't want to make you mad. He or she will do anything possible just to see your smile reach your cheeks.True love only happens once maybe twice in someone's lifetime.
There may be times where you think you're in love, but you're not.
On the other hand is a feeling of happiness when you think someone is cute or handsome. “Like” is just a temporary feeling though; you can't “like” someone for two years. After awhile you need to move on if that persona won’t “like” you back.
Is there really a difference between “love” and “like”? Both are feelings you get when he or she passes you.
“You don't need butterflies because you give me the whole zoo”, said Hailee Steinfeld.
Both “like” and “love” are feelings some people never or rarely get.
Love and like have differences though. Love is suppose to be forever and like is just a temporary emotion.
Most teens want to be liked or loved back. But as Spongebob says, “It's your imagination if your crush likes you back.”
