Friendships are some of the most important relationships in life. This Friendship Day, we fell in love with friendship quotes and we thought we’d highlight the fine line between love and friendship. Look at signs you should look for to tell if it’s more than just a friendship and how to eliminate confusion.

Difference Between Love and Friendship Quotes

“The difference between love and friendship is how much you can hurt each other.”

“Being in love with each other doesn’t mean you have to be lovers, sometimes you just have to be friends.”

Pretty neat, right? Many people are of the opinion that friendship is greater than love. We say they are both equally important. It’s usually your friends who pick you up and fix your broken heart but how do you know when it’s more than just a friendship?

Friendship Love vs Romantic Love: Signs to Look for When You Maybe More Than Just Friends

Daydreaming: You’re constantly thinking about them. Sitting and making fantasy plans about your future with them. You constantly zone out at work or class and you can’t wait to see them after. When you’re together, sparks fly all over. You feel more alive than ever when you are with them.

Jealousy: No matter how hard you try to fight it, jealousy has a way of creeping in and getting to you. You get annoyed when they are around other people. You tend to get upset when they are not giving you the attention you are craving and you sure as hell don’t like it when they are getting attention from someone else other than you. These things don’t usually happen when you’re just friends.

The way you look at each other:This is a tricky one, you don’t want to get this one wrong. It may as well be that they just look at you with adoration because they genuinely care, innocently. Or they probably admire you. So how do you tell the difference then? It’s usually the eyes that give a person away. If you’ll are really into each other, you’ll see it in your eyes. Another strong sign is when they start to remember the smallest of details from conversations. They go out of their way to help you. We’re not saying this doesn’t happen in friendships, but you will know when someone is trying to please you.

Before you decide that you want to take your friendship to the next level, you should consider a lot of things. How important is the friendship to you? Do you think you can live without them if things don’t work out? Does the other person feel the same? Do you feel deeply about each other?

If some of these questions raise some doubts in your mind, then we suggest you join the ‘friends’ bandwagon and enjoy this Friendship Day. Take things slow because you don’t want to ruin it.
