    Love/want/need

    What does love/want/need/like mean? I know it means "to desire something" but is there another way to describe it?

    Re: Love/want/need

    Those three words have different meanings. Why don't you try to use them in some sentences and we'll see how you're using them?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I love/want/need/like you. Is that good?

    If you mean that someone is saying "I love, want, need, like you", then what they are saying is an unlikely utterance.

    I just want to know if there is another way to describe love, want, need, or like.

    Re: Love/want/need

    It is still not clear to me what you want. Are you asking for synonyms for each of those words?

    I could check for synonyms but when I see the definition, most say "to desire something" and I want to know if there are other simpler words to say/define it. Do you understand now?

    NO. What is 'it'?

    'It' is love, like, want, or need like I said in the question.
