I feel many youths often mistake crushes and infatuation with love. It’s easy to see how the two are mistaken for love because the feelings are so intense, but there is a difference. A big difference in fact. Infatuation is defined as an intense but short lived passion or admiration for someone or something. Love is patient, love is understanding, and love is forgiving. Love desires a deep connection, while infatuation craves physical interactions.If you have a strong crush on someone – It is Infatuation. But , It is interesting to note that, Most of the time , Infatuation is always the pre-stage of love and It is not love.
