I'm confused between the two and I don't know how to identify or figure out my feelings when I felt something unusual to someone I am attracted to. The feeling of infatuation and being in love I think is the same but I know there is a big difference of those. Can you differentiate them?

love usually takes longer to develop than infatuation and love lasts forever..

thanks for your comment.. but i think its not forever . . I believe there's love but not forever. . coz Others left and never returns. . while the other one is hoping waiting them to come back . . :(

the two feels the same... but they are very different eheh!! for me. love is to accept someone unconditionally and to be loved back... its like forever.. infatuation... its more on physical aspects.... theres sweetness and a littleromance but.. it ends.. or disappears...

Yah, I agree with you in this one "Love is to accept someone and to be loved back" coz in infatuation its you alone who felts for something without any response to the other. Infatuation "more on physical aspects" mmmmm.. mostly, but I think not all coz I'm after with whom I'm comfortable with and then I'm happy to be with, as long as their is a compatibility between us. Yah, its not forever coz "it ends or disappear" as you said. . But love can it be forever?

Infatuation is the normal attraction that occurs when you saw or experience someones attitude and is short-lived. Love is the state of mind and soul that is committed to someone and willing to respect that person no matter what.

for me..infatuation can only hold the mind for a maximum of 4 months.If it exceeds that point, then you're already in love.So start counting..

love is sacrifice. giving it all out. infatuation is obsession. in dirty mind's term just getting laid.
