In my opinion you can love someone as in loving them as a friend or family member, i.e, caring deeply; but when you’re “in love” it’s an erotic and passionate love that includes sexual attraction.

To me, “loving” someone is a choice/action while being “in love” is a feeling.

 

I’ve also heard that phrase interpreted as you care about someone, but not in “that way” anymore.

@Sunfire:  My thoughts exactly.  I love my friends that are guys, but I’m only “in love” with the hubs.

@jpalm13:  Well, I love my son.  But I’m not in love with him.  I’m in love with my Fiance and feel romantically towards him.  I love my friends but don’t want to have sex with them, lol.

Yep, what sunfire said..being INlove involves passion and sexual attraction..loving someone can just be like a brother or sister or best friend where you care for them very deeply buuut there isnt a passion in the relationship

I love my parents and friends, but I am not in love with them. Since I think romantically about my Fiance, I not only love him, but am in love with him.

@sunfire: What you said 🙂

I love my pets, I love cheese, I love the color maroon, I love shopping at Whole Foods, I love lamp.

 

I am IN love with my fiance.  I care about him far more than any other, I am utterly concerned with his well-being, he is not an inanimate object, place, thing, or activity, he paticipates in loving me back, I would do anything for him including illegal and morally reprehensible activities.  I am actively in love with my fiance.
