Are you truly in love with your partner or are you simply attached to them?

Love isn’t easy, but this article clears up the differences between true love and mere attachment.

Hopefully, these explanations will help you in nurturing your relationship or creating one based on genuine love in the years to come.

1. Love is passionate, attachment is indifferent

People say that the closest thing to love is hate, and this is why after you break up with someone, all that wonderful, selfless love transforms into raging, passionate, and undescribable hate.

When you’re attached to someone, on the other hand, you never really go through that rage. You may become paranoid, irritated, and a little anxious, but never let those feelings confuse you for something as strong as real hate.
