LOVE – we have all experienced love at some point in our lives; we have been loved by our parents, brothers, sisters and friends. But romantic love is different; it is an intense, new feeling unlike any of these other ways of loving. It is that special feeling of liking the opposite sex, which draws you closer to that person and is most times driven by strong passion. But there is more to loving an individual than just the emotion; it is more that crazy funny feeling you get today that is no longer there tomorrow. Love is a sacrificial placing of someone else ahead of your needs, wants and desires.
LUST – is the absolute selfish desire to fulfil either a physical or emotional need or want, for example when a boy lusts over you, all he wants from you at that moment is to have your body, which is SEX, and immediately after that he doesn’t want to have anything else to do with you.
So lust is a momentary feeling that is based on want for physical benefits.
INFATUATION – is often a mental obsession, characterized by the person daydreaming and fantasizing about the opposite sex. An infatuated person will create an unrealistic impression of the person they are fantasizing, and when they really get close to the person and see the actual truth of the person, they quickly lose interest, they get disillusioned and disappointed.
