Introspect your feelings
It is obvious that we care for our friends in a special way, but that is not the case with love. So, take time and introspect your feeling about the person.

Overprotectiveness
In case of friendship, you don’t feel jealous when your friend decides to spend time with his or her friends. However, when you have romantic feelings you feel overprotective and jealous at the same time.

Way of talking
Between two friends the way of talking is different. It is more carefree and full of jokes. However, in case of love, the way of talking is more intimate and personal. You feel the need to connect and get involved with the other person.
