What is the difference between two hydrogen bonds and a double bond?

Two hydrogen bonds would not form between two atoms. A double bond consists of a sigma bond and a pi bond between two atoms that are sharing electrons. Hydrogen bonds are much weaker and can only form between hydrogen and oxygen/nitrogen/fluorine.

hydrogen bonds don't keep two atoms together in a molecule, they aren't that type of bond. they are a force of attraction between two separate molecules. double bonds are actual covalent bonds that form molecules.
