I can't think of anyone I care about that I could say I didn't love at all, though I can think of plenty of people I love who I sometimes find it really difficult to care for.

I agree that caring is a form of loving. I guess I just think of non-romantic love as in what I feel for my family and friends, and I don't expect that my therapist feels that way toward me. I guess I see love as a stronger emotion than *just* caring about someone.

I don't know that what I have said makes much sense. My meds aren't working very well. :-( Sorry.
