It is obvious for young people to fall in love but then it’s good to differentiate true love from infatuation. Infatuation is mostly with those in school especially those in primary and secondary schools since with their hormonal changes high,this drives them into the love confusion.
Differences between love and infatuation:
-Love develops gradually over time and can go for long while infatuation usually occurs almost instantly,is powerful but is short-lived.
-Love accepts the other partner wholly and be it even imperfections while in infatuation,one only considers perfections only and upholds the real self.
-Love is more than physical but in infatuation one focuses on the physical appearance and nothing more.This means once the partner is out of the picture one can still be attracted to anyone else based on the physical attributes.
-Love improves your real character while infatuation is jealous since it involves a strong inner drive.This means in infatuation the partner does not take time to consider what is best for them in the relationship.
-Love survives arguments but infatuation suffers a lot in case of arguments and can most likely not hold any longer.This means those in true love are able to solve their problems well but in infatuation,there is too much pride to even be able to sit down and discuss the problem at hand.
-Love considers the other person.This means that if one the partner is in school,the other partner takes that into consideration while in infatuation it’s all about self and so selfishness is the key aspect here.
-Love is being in love with the person while in infatuation,it’s being in love with love so it’s not true love.
-Love makes you happy while in infatuation,one is at most sad because the partner does not take time to consider the welfare of the other partner’s feelings towards the relationship which in turn determines happiness in it.
