...is a fondness towards something, someone
Its at times overly used
Maybe underated as it could be a beginning of positive feelings
towards something or someone :-)
Which if felt intensely could turn to love
But like is LIKE as of now...
liking doesn't mean loving what you like
loving doesn't mean liking what you love
what am I saying
as of now ...
i know that ...
i will not say I like you if i didn't mean it
Plain and simple as that.
