Ionic bonds are normally between metals and non metals while covalent bonds are between non metals and non metals!

Covalent bonds are usually formed between two nonmetals while ionic bonds are between a metal and nonmetal. Ionic bonds are also considered to be stronger than covalent bonds, due to the attraction between positives and negatives.
