4. An embodiment of perfection: 

What infatuation looks like: 

When you are infatuated with someone, you will believe that your object of affection is a personification of perfection. He/she is the image of an ideal partner, your dream lover. Their smile, their eyes, nose, lips, personality and everything else is your muse. Everything about them is perfect, flawless and supreme. 

What love looks like:

When you love someone, you feel like the other person is nothing near perfect, nevertheless, you admire everything about them. You accept them the way they are. You love their flaws and scars. No matter what they are, they are the ruler of your heart.

 

 

5. Feelings going haywire:

What infatuation looks like: 

Infatuation makes your feelings go haywire. Often when these intense feelings are not reciprocated, the person might become self-critical, self-description, wallowing in self-pity. If your beloved ever show you a distant sign of rejection, it kills your self-esteem.

What love looks like: 

When you are in love, you feel like an extension of the other person and hence you care not to destroy yourself when you are hurt by the other person. You have a deep sense of connection and understanding which pervades silly behaviors like performing antics to get the other person’s attention, or destructing oneself.

 

 

6. Insecure attachment

Not So-obvious

What infatuation looks like:

When you are infatuated with someone you are bound to be insecurely attached to that person. Insecure attachment comes from the very fear of abandonment. You are always scared of your beloved having the power to devastate you by leaving you.

What love looks like:

When you love someone, your biggest strength is your beloved. No matter what he/she does, whether they are present with you or not, you care for them, wish them good and pray for their well-being. 

Love is hard to find but once you do, you will feel secure and at peace with the person you love. You won’t have to constantly worry about them cheating at your back, or they won’t drive you ‘insane’. Love ain’t madness. It is not self-destructive. NEVER. If you are still under the conception that love is true only when it’s killing you, draining the blood off you, you are to immediately isolate the idea.

When you are in love with someone, they become your inspiration, your reason to grow and develop spiritually. Love does not kill. Love builds. 

 

Love takes time to grow. Infatuation will eventually grow out someday. One needs some time to let the seed of love sprout.
