People often confuse infatuation with love. They are confident in themselves that they love  the other person but with the passing time they begin to fall out of love. So was it really love? Or was it infatuation?

Time

#Infatuation

People often relate infatuation with “love at first sight”. Just a sight of person makes them fall in love. But is it really so? This phenomenon is very quick and you are confident that you are in love with that person.

#Love

Love happens slowly and deeply. You get to know each other;every minute detail of the person and that too slowly. This is because love is a slow process, it takes time to develop and when it develop there is no space for denial. It just grows more.

Conclusion – Infatuation is short-lived and Love is long lasting.

Expectation 

#Infatuation

When you are attracted to a person, the level of expectations increase day by day. These expectations tend to harm relationships.

#Love

When you love a person, you know expectations are a weaker thing because you know they are always there for you.There are chances when one expects a lot than the other but when they expect, they are doing keeping both of them together.

Conclusion-Infatuation starts expecting a lot of things but for oneself whereas love expects  for both of them.

Confidence 

#Infatuation

You feel you want to be together fighting the world, but when the time comes you lose all your hopes and all your confidence becomes baseless and your love fades. The fear of family and and society is much more prior that being with the person.

#Love

You are head over heels for the person that no matter and whosoever comes your way you will fight them standing together. You are confident that your love will withstand all the barriers.

Conclusion – Infatuation has no confidence on its power to withstand but love has full confidence to be together standing and supping each other.

Jealousy 

#Infatuation

When you are infatuated with the person, you want to keep the hold of that person;you want that person to belong only to you. If your beloved takes more interest in other people (family and friends), you get jealous.

#Love

When you are in love, you know that taking the hold on love will suffocate it. Since there is full trust between you both there is no place for jealousy. Though they are more in love with their family and friends you know they are all yours and you don’t need to push them back to yourself.

Conclusion-Infatuation has fear factors in itself which lead to jealousy whereas love gives freedom so there is no place for jealousy 

Real Identity 

#Infatuation

When you are infatuated to a person, you behave totally different from being the person you are in front of your family and friends.

#Love

Love gives you the freedom to be your true self, to showcase your real identity and to keep up with with always.

Conclusion-Infatuation tend to fake your true identity but love brings out the true in you. 

Disconnection

#Infatuation

When you are infatuated to a person, you both are together in happy times. When you need them, you are alone.

#Love

When you are in love, you stay with the person in their good and bad times when you feel disconnected and alone.

Conclusion-Infatuation is temporary and people remain with you in happy times but Love is permanent and people remain with you both in happy and hard times. 

Lost Interest 

#Infatuation

When you are infatuated to a person you want to spend time but then slowly you start losing interest.

#Love

When you are in love, you are passionate and energetic about it and there’s no way to losing interest.

Conclusion – Infatuation loses interest very easily but Love grows each day so there is no way to lose interest. 

Obsession 

#Infatuation

When you are infatuated to a person, you want to keep them with yourself. You don’t want them to go away and when they say so you try your ways to keep them with you and these ways can involve emotional blackmailing too.

#Love

When you are in love, you free the other person from all the thoughts and you just don’t hold and obsess over them. If they think to go away you respect their decision because you know you cannot control and keep the other person.

Conclusion – Infatuation is insecure in its own and so there is space for obsession but there is no space for obsession in love.
