almost everyone experience love and infatuation. but do we ever ask ourselves if what we feel is really love or just an infatuation? are there signs to distinguished the two?

the difference between love and infatuation is that infatuation concetrates on an area of the person that you are attracted to or that you like. for example you are infatuated with a person because he has gorgeous eyes, or he is handsome, or he is intelligent and so on.. once those qualities change or you get to know the person well and you found out that he wasnt really the guy you thought him to be you wont like him anymore. its just that.. you like him because you like a certain quality of his persona. whereas if you say love you mean that you like and accept the person as a whole. you like him for what he was, for what he is now and for what he can become. that is love. it is not bound by a certain quality. it transcends beyond the physical plain. love is something that is limitless and divine and unique.

Infatuation is one-sided love. One can't love a person unless the love is being reciprocated. That is the diference!
