An unknown author describe  love as “A wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to crumple.”

In love, your heart starts drubbing, you’re flush with excitement and giddy with anticipation. You start to jump here and there and your fingers play around with your smartphone all the times and eyes even not tired glaring your smartphone for pings of text for you, hoping it’s from them.

Sometimes you even can’t focus on your work and lost your appetite too.

But, infatuation other hand is an intense feeling for someone. It happens when you are attracted to a person’s appearance or attracted to him/her sexually. Infatuation happens early on and tends to become obsessive.

In infatuation, you see his/her all good things through rose-colored glasses putting him/her on a pedestal and don’t even acknowledge him for who he really is — good or bad.

Lust and infatuation are usually brief and short-lived and don’t tend to turn into true love. When you are in love, you will have intense feelings for him/her, and be attracted and connected on the level of mind, body and soul.
