What is the Difference Between Love and Infatuation?
Infatuation is accompanied by a sense of uncertainty.
You are stimulated and thrilled but not really happy.
You are miserable when he is absent.
You can't wait until you see him again.
Love says don't rush into anything.
You are sure of everything,
you can plan your future with confidence.
Infatuation says "We must get married right away.
I can't risk losing him.
Love is the maturation of friendship.
You must be friends before you can be lovers.
Love means trust,
you may fall into infatuation,
but you never fall in love.
Infatuation lacks confidence.
When he's away you wonder
if he's with another woman.
Sometimes you even check to make sure.
Love usually takes root slowly
and grows with time.
Infatuation leaps into bloom.
Infatuation is when you think he's as sexy as
Robert Redford, as smart as Henry Kissinger,
as noble as Ralph Nader, as funny as Woody Allen,
and as athletic as Jimmy Conners. Love is
when you realize that he's as sexy as
Woody Allen, as smart as Jimmy Connors,
as funny as Ralph Nader, as athletic as
Henry Kissinger and nothing like
Robert Redford... but you'll take him anyway.
