Crush: a brief but intense infatuation for someone, esp. someone unattainable or inappropriate.
Like: be fond of, be attached to, have a soft spot for, have a liking for.
Love: feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone)
The reason I pointed these out is because often times when people think they’re in love, they’re actually experiencing infatuation. That same confusion applies even when someone has a crush. This guy helps clear the confusion. Listen to what he says:
In case you didn’t get that:
Love v.s. Infatuation
What’s the difference between love and infatuation?
One is misguided temptation and the other is commitment and patience.
Happily being together while passion keeps blazing.
Rephrasing the definition of infatuation,
One sits on the side filled with patience hoping to become part of the other’s equation.
Feelings staying strong without a doubt,
It’s over whelming, so you scream and shout,
Feelings are swirling, and feel misunderstood,
Wishing you could show what you feel, wondering if you should and if its good.
Infatuation is no stranger to loving, by the fire cuddling while feelings are left bubbling.
Infatuation catches love catches love on the rebound,
Making sweet sounds while creating smiles out of sad frowns,
And love is a good thing but filled with suffering and may cause one to become sore, the tricky part is, finding someone worth suffering for.
Here is some food for thought:
1) Why do you like this person?
b) Is it reason enough to help get into marriage as well as sustain it?
2) Can you see yourself waking up next to this person, both with rings on your finger, every morning?
