"In romantic love, you want the other person. In true love, you want the other person's happiness."
I think the real answer to your question is desire. When you are in love, you desire that person, you long to be with them, you make allowances for their shortcomings. It's easy to love someone, and quite common. You love your family, your friends, your pets. It basically equates to a fondness for something. When you are in love, you have a desire for them that goes beyond that. It's both emotional and physical.0
