Is there a difference between love and infatuation?

Bringing it Into Reality


Infatuation can even be thought of as love with only 2 dimensions. With love, that third dimension is reality. So, it is actually your ability to tell what is real in a relationship, versus what is imagined. You love being part of a couple, but is this the person you want to be in a couple with?




Trying to differentiate your love interest from your lust interest is requires a level head and the courage to face the unpleasant. It also requires maturity and the ability to take a step back and survey the big picture. The result is more control and confidence as you stride your way in love�s direction.

Infatuation is that "shiny new penny" phase of a relationship. Everything is bright, shiny, WONDERFUL, and awesome. It feels perfect. However, this stage cannot be sustained. You become used to the person and get adjusted into a routine.


That's where Love comes in. It's about loving someone unconditionally and making it work...doing things for them and putting up with some little quirks because you love them.


I agree totally with Hermes' explanation. Very true.
