SadSadgirl Posted April 21, 2017 Share Posted April 21, 2017 ah yes.. love. everyone wants to be in love.. the butterflies, the hormones taking over your mind, the constant need to remind them how beautiful they are... wait sorry, that isn't love. that's infatuation! you may ask yourself, what does a high school student know about love? well... you'll be surprised infatuation occurs at the beginning of almost every relationship. most people mistake this for love when it's just your hormones talking. infatuation... the butterflies, hanging out every other day, calling your partner perfect! excessive compliments. you can't live without them. you put your partner on this throne and worship them. they're constantly on your mind 24/7. infatuation causes you to overlook the ugly, and move at 100 mph in a relationship. i thought i was in love, but i was infatuated, and so was he. you cant control your hormones, sorry. depending on conflict, time spent together, etc. Infatuafion usually lasts 3-6 months. the more you argue and spend time with each other, the quicker the infatuation wears off and you see the reality of your relationship. when infatuation wears off, people go in panic mode! "am I not in love anymore? help!" or they just dump you and look for someone else to be in-love-with-but-actually-infatuated. infatuation is like getting a brand new car. at first, you love your new car so much, then as time goes by, you get used to it. you love your car still, but its not as exciting as it used to be. sorry for comparing a person to a car, but that's how it is. you don't have a life outside of your new bf or gf, all your time is spent on them! stop letting tv shows show you what "love" is. love. love is taking your partner off of that throne, and putting them on the same ground you're on. you've seen them when they look super hot, and when they look like they've come from the depths of hell, but you still love them. you've seen the good, the bad, the ugly, everything. you know they're flawed, and that's what makes them unique. love is being comfortable with your partner. love is supporting your partner, and striving them to follow their goals. you're not in love if your hormones are talking. love is respect for your partner, and respect for yourself. love is when you've have a life outside of your partner, and they do too. yea i don't know a lot about love, i've only truly been in love once. i dated someone who thought infatuation was love... sigh. infatuation is calling your partner perfect, when they're not. love is accepting your partner on their bad hair day, knowing they're not perfect. unfortunately i know more about infatuation since i am just a high school student. go me! thoughts? suggestions? thanks for reading!
