  1. Love and infatuation are two different things.
    Infatuation is like that fairy tale love we see in Hollywood movies; it's just a fleeting phase and doesn't last forever. Real love isn't like that. Real love is respect, adoration, and loyalty. #inmyopinion

  3. i get u when u say infatuation is like a fairy tale... but in actual sense, it can develop into love... i know of cases whereby it was just for the fun of it initially n then it got realer by the sec... u never can predict these things...

  4. I don't think infatuation is real. Infatuation is idolizing someone and not seeing their flaws.. you don't see the whole picture. Love is seeing someone for who they are and still wanting them, flaws and all. Infatuation can't lead to real love because it's not real to begin with. Love is greater than infatuation.

  5. this is my opinion lol..
    infatuation leads to obsession!love and infatuation are so not the same, but people mix them up like crazy, cos the feelings are similar...most people who are infatuated by a person are merely just overly attracted to something the person has, once that thing is gone, the feelings stop. But when you love someone, you over look their faults, accept them for who they are and eventually grow into a deeper more intimate relationship. :)

  7. See that's where the problem comes, be it infatuation or real love, anyone's heart can get broken, big deal- you move on. But to think infatuation is realer than love -that's unrealistic #myopinion

  8. infatuation is real i believe i mean we have all heard stories about men who beat the livin day outta women and the women still stay... thats not love... i think... but no one has answered the other question.. can infatuation lead to love. or once u are infatuated(not sure bout the english) u have passed the love line.

  9. it depends. infatuation's like a crush, you basically like the person for certain reasons. sometimes it leads to love and other times it remains plain infatuation.

  11. You should always strive for love, cause even if there's a risk of getting your heart broken, the reward of finding real love would be worth any previous heartache. You can't live a fulfilling life without taking risks.

  16. I agree with cherii...infatuation shouldnt be confused with love. Infatuation is a foolish passion or attraction to someone without seeing their faults. Love is more than that. cherii defines it perfectly, "Love is seeing someone for who they are and still wanting them, flaws and all."
    @kanmi those women are not infatuated with those men, they know that their husbands are not perfect. its just fear or a lack of self esteem. its either they dont believe they deserve better or they believe the men cant help themselves n they(women) need to love them regardless. those men clearly have a psychological problem that needs to be fixed...#my2cents

  19. I guess you've got loads of opinions so might not really need an extra one but here goes...

    The best way to explain the difference is to see it this way. When you think of infatuation, think of romance. Butterflies, giggling, lust... All that good Hollywood stuff. Feels fucking amazing if I say so myself. :) Now, when you think of love, imagine God. Or at least the Biblical description of God. Agape (selfless) love. The kind that would sacrifice anything unconditionally. The kind that mothers have. We all know how African mothers go through all sorts of shit in their "husbands' houses" for the sake of their family and children.

    So the difference is obvious. Infatuation is more immediate, but love is more intense. It is built on trust and loyalty- you are prepared to give whatever it takes without necessarily expecting a reward. You do it just because. Infatuation, on the other hand, is based on how the person makes you feel. This is why people lose that "butterflies in the stomach" feeling and claim they have fallen out of love, not knowing it was never love to begin with.

    Sorry for the essay o... Really interesting topic. :D

  20. Nahh, I think once the infatuation is gone, they will be disappointed by who the person really is. It's like they built the person up to be perfect, but once they start to notice the imperfections.. it all goes downhill from there. Of course there are always exceptions, very unlikely, but they might still occur.
