Definition for the Tagalog word pag-ibig:
pag- ibig [noun] love; romantic love; romantic affection Root: ibig
"Pag-ibig" suggests a more intense level of love and when directed at people would most likely mean romantic love. "Pagmamahál" is more general in application.
You can have "pagmamahal" towards everyone you know, but it would sound improper if you'd have "pag-ibig" towards your parents, siblings, children, relatives, and friends other than that special someone in your life.
