Infatuation Versus Love
Infatuation is an illogical attraction towards a person. There lies a thin line of separation between infatuation and romantic love. This might be the first stage of a maturing relationship. Infatuation generally happens at the beginning of a relationship when sexual attraction happens to be at the peak.
It is characterized by the hurry, urgency and consequential anxiety. The participants can risk everything to attain this testosterone surge. This causes a mind numbing effect which focuses all the attention and strength towards the object of infatuation. This is characterized by inability to visualize any negative aspect of the person in context and take a rational decision. The brain fails to evaluate what is true and worthy. The person develops a quest to be in the company of the person at any cost. The physical attraction or physical relation is an integral part of the phenomena of infatuation.
This feeling takes off with a flight and crashes within a short time span leaving the debris. The person very soon realizes his or her short sightedness. Infatuation is a temporary phase which passes within short blinks.
If the phase of infatuation bears some element of faithfulness, loyalty, intense and deep affection, and the feeling to sacrifice, this may get transformed into the unconditional real love. Falling in love is not an event. Rather, this is a prolonged process which may continue throughout the life with occasional interruptions in the form of clashes or differences of opinion. Co-dependency, contentment, security and confidence are the characteristics of true love. If you are feeling the same irrespective of physical distance or intellectual difference, you are in love my dear!
Love requires a lot of selflessness and and polite assertiveness. You might not have the synchrony of thought, interest or opinion. Despite that, you could easily feel the invisible energy stream between the two of you, charging you every moment and making you inspire to conquer the world.
Thank you love for being the inspiration behind my every achievement!
