look/looking

Post by digitalen » Fri Sep 20, 2013 12:58 am

Is there any difference in the meaning between "1" and "2"?
1. You look more like your dad every day.
2. You're looking more like your dad every day.

No difference in meaning as far as I'm concerned, but the tone of #2 is slightly more conversational or informal than #1.
