To me, like is more of a friendship or crush thing. In high school, if I had a crush on someone, I would say I "like" them because I don't "love" them. Love is a more mature, deep connection than "like." When you "like" someone and they "like" you back, it opens up the opportunity for you to love each other. Love takes time and work, while liking someone is just a crush or a friendship thing. You can love your friends, however, but it is a different kind of love.

You can like without loving, but you cannot love without liking. You get what I mean?

When a relationship begins between a man and a woman they like each other. They enjoy each others company and start spending more and more time together. You will find your heart starts to beat faster, you get butterflies in your stomach and you are just so overjoyed to see the other person. This is love.

I think love and like relates to each other. Love starts from liking the person bec. of his/her physical appearance or qualities that you find attractive. Love on the other hand, there is already emotional attachment. This is a deeper kind of like. You love that person bec. of his characteristics that you don't and can't see with your naked eyes. You love that person for who he/she is inspite of his/her imperfections. You accept his/her whole being, his/her complete package. In like, you only accept what you can see or what's nice to see with your eyes. :)

you like someone because of what they are, the things they do, their thoughts etc. you start loving someone when you do stuff for each other without asking for anything in return. love is a journey, it doesn't happen overnight. unlike when you just like someone and they do something bad, and then you don't like them as much as you used to. it takes more of that when you love someone. that's why you get so many problems with relationships, when the giving is too much. love involves sacrifice it's unconditional. like is just taking someone out for drinks, or to watch a movie. it's just the onset of a relationship.

I think the word 'like' means to be fond of a person without too much emotion. To love a person you must have a very strong affection and desire for the one you love. Unless there are love in between two persons, otherwise the other side wouldn't feel any thing even you tell her that you will never stop loving her. In the other hand, if you tell your girl who deeply falling in love with you that you like her very much but you don't love her, sure she will be very angry coz you have hurt her passion. Hoping my response can suit your opinion of like and love.
