You like someone "BECAUSE" they have pretty eyes, nice smile, or an elegant nose. You LOVE the person "EVEN THOUGH" they are not rich, a good cook, or can’t put the toilet seat down. Liking someone means that you are fond of their good traits and loving someone is that you accept that other person fully even though they are not always perfect. Liking and loving are different. Know the difference. It's easy to like but it takes a lot of heart and discipline to love.
