Love vs In Love:
2 very different feelings. I have been in a relationship for 12 years and I love him and care about his needs. I am tied to him emotionally, physically and financially. But I'm not in love with him anymore. Something happened and my attention turned to someone else, we've worked together for 8 years and one day about a year ago he looked at me, I looked at him and everything changed for me in that one moment. I can't stop thinking about him. I get all flustered when I see him. My mind goes blank. I cant concentrate and It's wonderful. I feel young and alive. But.. of course he is married w/ children. I am committed in my long term relationship, we both have obligations. I know he has feelings for me also but we work hard to keep from reacting on them. It's forbidden. So theres a difference between love and in love, its physical and its real.
