By Paul Hudson Oct 13 2014 It took me a very long time to learn the difference between being in love with someone and actually loving that person. I learned the hard way, the very, very hard way. Hearts were broken repeatedly over the years, and although I wish bdtween pain could have been avoided, the experiences taught me more than any book or class ever could. I grew up on difference between dating and falling in love tales and love stories that taught me to believe that being in love and loving are the same thing. That couldn't be any further from the truth.

June 22 2018 Andrew Zaeh for Bustle When it comes to dating and forming relationships, there aren't too many differences between how men and women fall in love. Due to biology and societal expectations, the process of falling in love can vary slightly between them, in terms of what each might value, who traditionally says "I love you" first, and so on. But in general, love is love. And if there are any differences, it's usually much more focused on how men and women actually show their love once they're already dating, than anything else. The truth of the matter is, love is difficult to define and measure.
