Why do people fall in love? What is the difference between loving someone and being in love with him/her? (Complete answers appreciated)

people "fall in love" because of emotion, feeling, chemistry, affection, and physical attraction/desire. it could be one of those, it could be all of them.

loving someone is an action. true love is a decision to be committed and dedicated, and to serve someone, even when you don't feel like it.

they are two very opposite things. simply put, falling in love is a fleeing emotional feeling, whereas loving someone is done out of commitment and respect.

Ask me anything

Are they opposite things, or is one better understood in light of the other? That is, I think, an important distinction.
