I love you how you loved him.

I love you the (same) way you loved him.

I love you like you loved him.

In cases like this one, is "how" = "the same way"/"the way"/ "like"? Do all the sentences mean the same thing?

  • @user3169 Which is why I asked which dictionary definition they looked at. – ColleenV Jul 13 '16 at 14:37

In My knowledge, three sentence are same meaning when we look over view of the meaning. But in depth we see means, It have difference.

1.First sentence looks the Quantity of love. 2 Second one is looks way or handle or procedure of love. 3.Third one represent your opinion.

But we looks of overall means both are same.

  • how <> quantity. You are thinking of "how much". – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jul 12 '16 at 13:16
  • What would you say are the differences between them three sentences? @TRomano – lekon chekon Jul 12 '16 at 16:45
