Is there a difference between 'I love you' and being in love with someone? If so can you elaborate why?

I suppose if you wanted to be pernickety - you can love someone as a friend, you can love a family member - "man, I love my new trainers". There's different types of love.
Being "in love" with someone usually implies a mutual relationship between two people.

If say the only difference is that you can love people in different sorts if ways, family, friends etc but being in love implies romantic love. In love always sounds stronger to me too, I guess cos people are only in love with one person but can love many people.

Well to me personally:
I love my ex boyfriend. But i am not in love with him. I still care for him, i still think about him, whenever i see him around i do stop and i do think 'oh ___ is there, i wonder what he's doing'. However i don't constantly think about him, i dont have the urge to talk to him or make love to him.
So in short, being in love with someone is for that time. Like you know how some people say 'oh i dont love her anymore', i think they mean theyre not in love with her anymore, because deep down love never goes away. Just my opinion i guess
