Love Versus Lust or Infatuation
Lust is a product of physical attraction. It corresponds to sex and outer appearance. True love encompasses the whole of a person. Even when your partner gains weight, goes gray or becomes poor as a pauper, your love doesn't dry up.
Love often deepens with time, rather than dissipates.
To be in love, you dont have to be obsessive about your loved one; in fact, quite the opposite is true. If you have a healthy loving relationship, then you should be able to spend time apart from your loved one without obsessing over what he or she is doing every five seconds.
If you've thought about having children but can't imagine having kids with anyone other than your loved one. If you can't imagine growing old without your loved one by your side.
See if you cant go a few hours without thinking of your loved one.
- If youre in love, then the person you love should bring out the best in you. After all, if youre in love, then you should want to be with the person youre with for the rest of your life, so that person should make you feel like your best self.
- If youre really in love, then you should value your loved ones opinion and should care about what he or she thinks, whether its about your next career move or the political situation in your country.
- A neurotransmitter in the brain that makes you feel elated.
Your mate seems perfect through the blurred goggles of love. All the habits that would annoy you in anyone else seem quirky in your lover. You feel her pain.
Even the coldest of souls fall in love. Once bitten, whether it's a product of compatible MHC or the release of dopamine, the side effects are undeniable.
If you and your loved one are comfortable enough with each other to laugh about one another's flaws, then you're more likely to be really in love.
