of course. You can love your parents, friends, grandparents, etc, with out being INlove with them. You can love a boyfriend/girlfriend with out being INlove. INlove is a much deeper kind of love that you only find a couple times in your life, if you're lucky. So, the answer is yes. You can love with out being inlove.

Yes of course you can love someone without being intimate. There are other ways to tell if you have a connection and love someone without being intimate or physical. You can just tell sometimes like by looking into their eyes and the strength of the connection and the feeling you two get or just you even get when you are together.

Being in love is when you love someone for who they are. Being in love with the idea of someone is when you love what you want them to be, but not who you truly are. Answer There are some people out there who just want to be in love with Someone...they really don't care who. That would be being in love with the idea of being in love. Really being in love is when you meet someone, that special person who has an effect on you like no one else does, who you want to spend your time with, share things with, do things to make them happy, be there for them, etc. That person is WHO you want to be with and cannot be replaced by someone else.

Someone very bright once told me that you cannot love someone who does not love you back....it has to be something else like an addiction...I didn't believe her at first, but in time, I found out that she was right. Think about it...do you really love that person or are you intrigued because they are taken? It's also about intimacy. Those of us who don't feel comfortable being intimate often choose people who are taken. We can still have that feeling of being in love....but without the intimacy and without being tied down.

* To love someone (this can include family members and friends) is a love of respect for one or more people, but being in love is when you love someone of the opposite sex with all your heart.
