Love and Infatuation are both intense emotions that one feels for another person. These feelings are most often confused by many people. But the two feelings differ in their actuality of love, intensity and final outcome.
Infatuation is the state of being completely carried away by unreasoning passion or love; addictive love. Infatuation usually occurs at the beginning of relationship when sexual attraction is central.
Love can be described as feeling of intense affection for another person. It is most often talked about as an emotion between two persons. Hence is also sometimes referred to as interpersonal love.
True, sometimes these two are so confusing. Well, for me, it's not easy to say that you love someone because you find that person attractive. When a man is attracted towards a woman and a woman is attracted towards a man, both thinks they are falling in love. That love is nothing but attraction between male and female hormones - pure chemistry.
We all have different ideas about love. When you found that special someone the ideas about love will disappear, cause love is not an idea anymore, it is part of your being.
