Amore - the romantic affection between two people. The love most people are thinking of when they say they want to have sex with someone they love.

Agape - unconditional love. The sort of love where you are more interested in what is best for someone than what you want. The sort of love where you accept all the good and bad in someone. Where you are willing to help them change when they need or want to, but will continue to love them regardless of whether they do or not.

I am assuming that everyone has seen Pretty In Pink (John Hughes directed, stars: Andre McCarthy, James Spader, Jon Cryer, and Molly Ringwold) [if you haven't seen this film you should go to the video store and rent every John Hughes movie you can find, and watch them - very 80s smarmy teen stuff, but a lot of cultural reference within, ex Ferris Bhuelers Day Off]. Examples of these 2 kinds of love from Pretty In Pink

Amore:

Blaine: "you said you couldn't love someone who didn't believe in you. I have always believed in you. You just never believed in me. I love you"

Agape:

Ducky: "this is a very romantic moment and you are ruining it for me. If you don't go after him, I am never taking you to another prom."
